Steve Friedman

About Steve: ​When he wrote his memoir, In Search of Courage, he realized that the common thread of introversion he thought was a curse all his life was actually a blessing. For years he wore a mask at work and coped with his stress by sacrificing his health and personal relationships. Now he embraces his own introversion as a toolkit to become a happier self. His purpose is to help other introverts to accelerate their own journey to discover their strengths and how to apply them at home and at work. He seeks to inspire others to overcome past obstacles and find joy, pride, and confidence in life. He retired from corporate America and enjoy sharing articles, books, quizzes, and resources through his website, He is excited to combine his career experiences and his enthusiastic belief in all introverts through his new leadership book, The Corporate Introvert: How to Lead and Thrive with Confidence. He​ loves to engage with fellow introverts through social media and email, so drop him a line.​Steve hails from Texas and enjoys family time and travels with his wife and three kids. 

I have finally realized, to be happy I don’t need to change myself, I just need to be myself
