Introverts may feel powerless in a world where extroverts seem to rule, but theres more than one way to have some sway. As Jennifer Kahnweiler proves in this much-needed book, introverts can be highly effective influencers when, instead of trying to act like extroverts, they use their natural strengths. Kahnweiler shows how you can use those strengths to challenge the status quo, provoke new ways of thinking, effect change, and inspire others to move forward.

Kahnweiler identifies six unique strengths introverts have:

  • Taking Quiet Time: The periods of solitude that introverts crave provide them with a powerful source of creativity and self-awareness.
  • Preparation: Careful preparation, which makes introverts feel more comfortable, also makes them very knowledgeable and able to anticipate objections.
  • Writing: Introverts preference for writing over speaking enables them to influence others through deep, authentic, well-developed arguments.
  • Engaged Listening: Introverts are great listenerstheyd rather listen than talkwhich is a crucial skill for establishing rapport and mutual understanding.
  • Focused Conversation: Introverts dont like small talk, but they excel at the serious, purpose-driven, one-on-one interactions vital for winning people over.
  • Thoughtful Use of Social Media: Oversharing doesnt appeal to introverts online any more than it does offline, so they naturally use social media in a thoughtful, and more effective, way.

Kahnweiler includes a Quiet Influence Quotient quiz to measure how well youre using these six strengths now. Then, through questions, tools, exercises, and real-world examples, she helps you increase your mastery of these strengths. Quiet Influence is the must-have guide to deeper insight and greater impact that introverts have been waiting for and that extroverts can learn from.
