At the Fetch dvm360 conference Dec. 13-16 in San Diego, Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking and Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverts, will deliver a keynote address to a room full of-appropriately enough-introverted veterinarians.
In her talk, Cain will discuss how introverts think and work in ways that are crucial to the survival of today's organizations, including veterinary practices. Drawing on her original research and the latest in neuroscience and psychology, she'll offer ways you can harness your powers, better manage your team and play to your strengths.
As it happens, veterinary professionals frequently describe themselves as introverts. (After all, animals are easier to interact with than people most days.) While it's generally thought that extroverts make better leaders, Cain points out that introverts display certain qualities that make them better suited to deal with clients-including pet owners. Analytical, knowledge hungry, excellent at listening and empathetic-introverts bring these strengths and more to the veterinary profession
Of course, veterinary professionals aren't alone in identifying as introverts, as the success of Cain's work reveals. Quiet has been translated into 40 languages and is in its sixth year on the New York Times bestseller list. She's also shared her research in pieces for The New York Times, The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal and many other publications.
