Book News Annotation:

In our outgoing, type-A business culture, introverted people often undersell themselves, let their ideas go unheard, and have difficulty networking and saying no. Kahnweiler, a corporate coach with a PhD in counseling and organizational development, shows that introversion be managed and can even be a source of strength. Based on a national workplace survey and personal interviews, she lays out a four-step strategy for succeeding in an extroverted world, and shows how to apply the suggestions in areas that are particularly difficult for introverts, such as public speaking, heading up projects, participating in meetings, and building relationships. She also emphasizes areas where introversion can be a plus, like listening skills and written communication. Her advice will be especially useful for managers and aspiring managers, for professionals in technical, scientific, and financial fields, and for women in male-dominated fields.

In our outgoing, Type-A business culture, introverts can feel excluded, overlooked or misunderstood, their reticence mistaken for arrogance or even lack of intelligence.
