Shyness can make us feel isolated, and it's inherently difficult to talk about, yet half of all humans consider themselves shy. But shyness is not weakness, nor a shameful secret. Let's own our shyness, and work with it in the face of the loud, outgoing idea of success. It's time for a softer, more considered approach. Shy people have unique qualities and skills, so let's nurture and appreciate them.
Nadia Finer gives shy people the support and understanding they need to step out of the shadows. This book is full of easy to follow advice, backed up by first-hand experiences from fellow shy people. Nadia shares insights from scientists and psychologists to help explain the reasons behind shyness, and gives us top tips to help navigate the most challenging situations.
I’m Nadia Finer, and I’m a shyness expert. I’m on a softly-spoken mission to help shy people be more mighty. I know what it's like to struggle with shyness. Sounding like a little kid has made me very self-conscious. But, rather than hide behind my insecurities, I’ve figured out how to embrace my shyness, push past my fears and tap into my hidden strengths. I have written two books about shyness, one for adults and one for kids, I’m the host of the Shy and Mighty podcast and I work with schools and organizations to help raise awareness of shyness. In my work as a coach I help people of all ages to work with their shyness and to step out of the shadows, so that they can lead a bigger life
