EDUCATIONAL EVENT (November 16, 2017)

The Genius of Opposites: How You Can Create High-Functioning Introvert-Extrovert Pairs As a Woman in Publishing​

At The Genius of Opposites: How You Can Create High-Functioning Introvert-Extrovert Pairs As a Woman in Publishing, Jennifer B. Kahnweiler, Ph.D., Certified Speaking Professional and bestselling author, will share her expertise on how introverts and extroverts can work well together.


Do you characterize yourself as an introvert, extrovert or ambivert?



Many introverts enter publishing because it suits their quiet, reflective style. But whatever your style you have to work with people across the spectrum. Without careful maintenance and balance, relationships quickly go off the rails. In this program you will learn how to make two different styles exponentially better than one. It’s true—opposites attract and successful partnerships focus on results and don’t get caught up in differences. We will explore:



  • The strengths of introverts and extroverts

  • Special challenges for introverted women

  • The 5 key steps necessary for opposites to succeed

  • How you can apply these tools to your own career, workplace, and life



Please join other women in publishing to explore these ideas with Jennifer. There will be opportunities to network and meet other attendees during the event.
