Creating Introvert-Friendly Workplaces

As the diversity, equity, and inclusion wave widens and deepens its reach, introversion is becoming a natural part of that movement. Despite the fact that half the population identify as introverts, traditional workplace cultures are still geared toward rewarding extroverts, ultimately limiting their collective potential. Using stories and groundbreaking research, this Jennifer offers a practical road map for organizations to create inclusive cultures that unlock the power of introverts and their allies. This book is for leaders at all levels in any organization seeking to make positive changes toward increased inclusion–and drive results.

Jennifer presented to our audience of 450 executives, and it was a smash hit. I heard many favorable comments from attendees, and she was swarmed afterwards with questions, comments, and eager book buyers. Next time she will bring more books because they sold out!

The Introverted Leader

Too many introverts assume—or have been told—that to rise through the ranks they have to change who they are. But you don’t have to pretend to be an extrovert to get to the top. Just look at Mark Zuckerberg, Arianna Huffington, or Warren Buffet—all self-identified introverts who have done quite well for themselves… In this new, expanded edition of her pioneering introvert book, Jennifer B. Kahnweiler, Ph.D., CSP, lays out a well-tested, four-step strategy introverts can use to build on their quiet strengths and make it a source of great power. This bestselling book includes fresh information on the unique challenges faced by introverted women, how leaders can shape a more introvert-friendly workplace, customized hiring and coaching strategies for introverts, and the positive correlation between introverted leadership and company performance.
