From The Publisher:
Succeeding in an Extroverted Business World
In our extroverted business culture, introverts can feel excluded, overlooked, or misunderstood. But being an introvert doesn't mean you can't be a great leader. Citing examples of highly successful leaders like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, Jennifer Kahnweiler shows that introverts can build on their quiet strength and make it a source of great power.
After highlighting the common challenges introverts face at work, such as stress, invisibility, and perception gaps, the book details a straightforward four-step process to handle work situations such as managing up, leading projects, public speaking, and many more. Kahnweiler provides numerous examples and leadership tips as well as a revealing Introverted Leader Quiz that pinpoints where focused attention will produce maximum results, The Introverted Leader will teach you to embrace your natural work style in order to advance your career, get the most out of the people around you, and add value to your organization.
"Finally, a book that recognizes the immense value that introverts bring to the workplace. You'll learn how to lead with quiet confidence through powerful personal examples and practical tools."
—Daniel H. Pink, author of A Whole New Mind
"This thoughtful process offers to improve the leadership potential of many who make a significant contribution to the people around them, and, by extension, our society at large."
—Edward T. Reilly, President and CEO, American Management Association International
"The Introverted Leader offers a straightforward and practical approach to business communication and leadership that will allow introverts to cut through the noise of an extroverted world and have their invaluable voices heard."
