Lynette Crane is a Minneapolis-based acclaimed national speaker, author, and executive coach with more than 30 years of experience in speaking and training.
Author of The Confident Introvert, and a life-long successful introvert, she believes that America is overlooking and even discouraging its intellectual treasure: the 51% of the population who are introverts, and who are highly representative of the gifted.
In addition to helping quiet people to thrive in a culture that idealizes extroversion, she gives leaders the tools to manage diverse groups in the same setting, and to develop the talent that lies quietly under their noses.

I highly recommend Lynette Crane. I met her at a networking event a few months ago, read her book, and invited her ...to speak because her approach to becoming a confident introvert is simply wonderful. She tailored it nicely to the job search. As a speaker, she's super! Packed with personal stories that resonated with everyone, and offers excellent strategies for success. Her content is amazing. Her book is great for everyone ... not just me. You'd enjoy it, and get some great tips for working with job seekers, friends and family (I sure did!). I want to get her talk, and/or her book in front of every introvert I know.

Focused. Practical. Insightful. That accurately describes Lynette's marketing presentation that I recently attended at the Bar Association of San Francisco. My time was well spent because--unlike countless other similar workshops--I left with practical insights on how to approach networking in a more targeted way, make meaningful connections, and develop a concrete follow up plan. Highly recommended.
