Summary

We've all been in situations where we don't want to socialize - and that's normal. However, sometimes being social can be totally overwhelming and completely uncomfortable. And it's hard to overcome your fear of speaking with someone when you don't want to. It's common to be shy sometimes when you just aren't in a good mood, or don't want to talk.

But what about those times when the thought of speaking with someone makes your nervous? Or makes you sweat? Or makes your stomach knot? And what happens when you feel this way at work?

How do you deal with social anxiety at work? How do you overcome it? If you can't speak naturally with your boss or co-workers then you're not acting as your best self, and you're not reaching your full potential at your job. Your social anxiety is holding you back at work if you don't do anything about it. In order to advance your career, you need to be the best you can be.

Good introductory book

I liked the general idea about social anxiety. I thought more will be covered on everyday colleagues interaction. The difficulty of a social anxious person to deals with work politics and bullying etc
