Synopsis

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.



Highlighting the common challenges introverts face at work, such as stress, invisibility, and perception gaps, Kahnweiler details a straightforward four-step process to handle work situations such as managing up, leading projects, public speaking, and many more. Known as the Four P's, the four step process includes preparation (carefully devise a game plan for any potentially anxiety-producing situation); presence (knowing that you're prepared, be completely focused on the present moment); push (with this firm foundation, go beyond your comfort zone); and finally, practice practice, practice. Kahnweiler also provides numerous tips and examples, as well as revealing Introverted Leader Quiz that pinpoints where focused attention will produce maximum results. This book 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.
