Susan Cain announces news to make introverts happy

Hear her plans for making the world a little quieter for them, starting with a line of Steelcase office furniture. Photo: James Duncan Davidson Susan Cain is planning a Quiet Revolution. In her classic talk from TED2012, she spoke up for introverts, pointing out the many ways our culture encourages extroversion. “I wasn’t prepared for the intensity and voracity of response to these ideas,” Cain tells the TED Blog two years later.

You can’t be a good engineer unless you have experienced all aspects of the processes yourself. Bosses came in all shapes, sizes and styles. Les bonnes « vieilles » pratiques de management qui marchent toujours. Il y a plus d'un siècle, les frères Lumière, Gustave Eiffel et, avant eux, Nicolas Fouquet avaient déjà identifié des leviers de motivation et de fidélisation Alors que l'on entend partout qu'il faut repenser le management et que l'avenir de notre économie passe notamment par l'innovation managériale, vous faîtes le choix d'un coup de projecteur sur des pratiques qui pourraient sembler un peu « datées ».
