The introverted leader

£8.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

In our extroverted business culture, introverts can feel excluded, overlooked, or misunderstood. But being an introvert doesn't mean you can't be a great leader. Citing examples of highly successful leaders like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, Jennifer Kahnweiler shows that introverts can build on their quiet strength and make it a source of great power. Highlighting the common challenges introverts face at work, such as stress, invisibility, and perception gaps, Kahnweiler details a straightforward four-step process to handle work situations such as managing up, leading projects, public speaking, and many more. Known as the Four P's, the four step process includes preparation (carefully devise a game plan for any potentially anxiety-producing situation); presence (knowing that you're prepared, be completely focused on the present moment); push (with this firm foundation, go beyond your comfort zone); and finally, practice practice, practice. Kahnweiler also provides numerous tips and examples, as well as revealing Introverted Leader Quiz that pinpoints where focused attention will produce maximum results. This book will teach you to embrace your natural work style in order to advance your career, get the most out of the people around you, and add value to your organization.

Oxfam Bookshop Hertford

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also offer a range of greetings cards for birthday and other occasions. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
