- "50% of the U.S. population aged 40 and older test out to be introverts, as do 40% of top executives. Jennifer Kahnweiler's The Introverted Leader was one of the first books to offer this staggeringly large audience the tools to effectively lead with this common disposition. In our outgoing, type A business culture, introverts can feel excluded, overlooked, or misunderstood, their reticence mistaken for reluctance, arrogance, or even lack of intelligence. But Jennifer Kahnweiler shows that not only can introversion be managed, it can even be a source of strength in the workplace. This second edition is thoroughly revised with two new chapters and has increased attention to diversity and unconscious bias in organizations. Diversity of styles and temperaments, in addition to more traditional aspects of diversity like race and gender, are increasingly important to companies. This book still remains a highly practical leadership guide for introverts"--Provided by publisher.
