The Introverted Leader: Building on Your Quiet Strength by Jennifer B. Kahnweiler PhD

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." —Carol A. DiBattiste, Senior Vice President, Privacy, Security, Compliance, and Government Affairs, LexisNexis Group

This book provides introverts with a clear strategy to accomplish any task at hand. Great tips, and successful ways to build on your weaknesses. The planning tips have helped me significantly break through challenges I never thought was possible. I always figured being an introvert was just the way I was and the barrier could not be broken, this book gives you confidence to succeed.

This book has nearly nothing to do with the behavior, characteristics and possibilities for introverts. It is a typical self-help manual for those in business. It translates the creative insights of predecessors into corporate talk designed to be marketed to executives and professionals on the rise. Lots of interviews with others presented as people who have overcome their introvertedness. To which is added the requisite "formulas for success." What a disappointment given the promising title.
