Clients often choose to start with the foundations of introverted leadership including understanding the strengths and challenges that introverts face daily and how successful introverted leaders apply these assets. We build on that knowledge by teaching the principles of quiet influence across and beyond the organization by demonstrating how all of us can leverage our quiet introvert strengths. We then focus on how to create highly functioning teams of introverts and extroverts. We call these partnerships “genius opposites.” Our newest groundbreaking presentation is focused on how to shift organizations into ones that unleash introvert talent.
Each presentation is accompanied by a companion book.

Meet the Author — Fireside Chat
A leader and introvert advocate from your organization interviews Jennifer about one or more of her books. We will encourage transparency and explore topics relevant to your organization. You can host a follow-up book signing. Attendees gain from the rich conversations and deeper dialogue with the author and enjoy receiving a signed copy of the book. This “fireside chat” is a great kick-off to a book club using one of Jennifer’s books.
Panel Discussions With Leaders
Jennifer will present a 10-to-15-minute TED Style talk on the latest trends in introvert research, explode some myths, and explore some provocative ideas. She then will moderate a panel of 2–3 introverted leaders from your organization, who will respond to questions about their journeys as introverted leaders. The panel is a strong statement to your organization that introversion is an important diversity, inclusion, and equity topic to address.
Consultation Sessions With Leaders
Jennifer facilitates an open dialogue and discussion session with managers. This can take place during lunch. Managers can bring their challenges in leading introverts to a roundtable discussion. Past topics have included talent management practices, hiring, meetings, workspace design, and remote work options for introverts.
