"In a culture where being social and outgoing are prized above all else, it can be difficult, even shameful, to be an introvert. But, as Susan Cain argues in this passionate talk, introverts bring extraordinary talents and abilities to the world, and should be encouraged and celebrated."
Susan Cain, founder of the Quiet Revolution, discusses in her TED talk how being an introvert doesn't just mean that you simply are shy, but it means that you respond to social stimuli differently. Introverts bring incredible & abilities talents to the world and should be celebrated!
"So the key then to maximizing our talents is for us all to put ourselves in the zone of stimulation that is right for us."

"People don't buy what you do, they buy why you do it."
Simon Sinek discusses in his TED talk how great leaders need not only a "how", but a "why" behind what they do.
"If you hire people just because they can do a job, they'll work for your money, but if you hire people who believe what you believe, they'll work for you with blood and sweat and tears."
Our next blog series will highlight a series of TED talks that are applicable to the professional working world in almost any field (including Accountants!). Simon Sinek's talk on leadership and "why" can apply to just about anyone in one way or another!
