Quiet InfluenceThe Introvert’s Guide to Making a Difference

About The Book

This is the first book on influencing others aimed squarely at introverts, who make up half of the U.S. population. Jennifer Kahnweiler, bestselling author of The Introverted Leader, demonstrates precisely how introverts can be highly effective influencers and make a difference when, instead of trying to act like extroverts, they leverage six key strengths. This introvert book maps out a powerful process for raising your QIQ (Quiet Influence Quotient) and includes a comprehensive quiz and planning guides to track progress.
