CareerIndulgence More than 1 year ago
Jennifer Kahnweiler has written an excellent, easy read that helps introverts learn how to use their natural strengths effectively in our Type A workplaces. Furthermore, for those extroverts out there, this book is almost more necessary to read - she does a great job of showing how the two worlds bridge and the pitfalls of spending too much time in either world. The benefits of balance are clear in Quiet Influence. This is a cutting edge topic that will be even more important as Gen Y and Millenials enter the workforce - where individual strength and personality are even more valued.

I like that Quiet Influence is a straightforward and relatable book with examples and suggestions for anyone trying to leverage their introverted nature to expand their influence.  For each of the six tools Jennifer describes, she provides examples of how others have used it, and specific actions to apply them.  Jennifer also provides a cautious voice to help the reader develop the sense for when they are overusing that tools, and the subsequent pitfalls. For a book so full of wisdom and practical information, Quiet Influence by Jennifer Kahnweiler is a fun read for anyone interested in how introverts can serve as leaders in a world that too easily overlooks how their natural strengths can benefit everyone.
