—Daniel H. Pink, author of A Whole New Mind

“This thoughtful process offers to improve the leadership potential of many who make a significant contribution to the people around them, and, by extension, our society at large.”
—Edward T. Reilly, President and CEO, American Management Association International

""The Introverted Leader offers a straightforward and practical approach to business communication and leadership that will allow introverts to cut through the noise of an extroverted world and have their invaluable voices heard.""
—Carol A. DiBattiste, Senior Vice President, Privacy, Security, Compliance, and Government Affairs, LexisNexis Group

“Many of the most effective leaders are self-contained ‘inner processors’ who are nonetheless extremely capable of getting results. This book shows you how to get the most out of yourself and others whose management style is different.""
—Brian Tracy, author of The 100 Absolutely Unbreakable Laws of Business Success and Eat That Frog!

“Kahnweiler believes that we must recognize the many thoughtful, inwardly focused, quiet ‘gems’ within our midst. If you count yourself as introverted some or all of the time, this book is a must-read.""
—Liliana de Kerorguen, President, Merial Canada Inc.

“Introverts are often understated overachievers. Their quality and contributions may not be discovered and rewarded. If you are an introverted manager who finds public speaking intimidating and being around people draining, this book provides practical guidance that will help you embrace and control uncomfortable situations. It will enable you to be more effective.”
—Ping Fu, President and CEO, Geomagic and 2005 Inc. magazine Entrepreneur of the Year

""Jennifer B. Kahnweiler shows that she understands the challenges and opportunities introverted leaders face daily in a global marketplace. If you are an introverted leader or a manager of introverts -- or both! -- read this book.  Kahnweiler delivers a proven four-part process drawn from her work in the trenches. Yes, introverted leaders can win!
—Fabrice Egros, President, UCB Pharma Inc.

“Does the thought of working a room make you want to run from the room?  The good news is, you don't have to be the life of the party to be a successful leader.  This book teaches people skills you can use to lead with confident, compassionate authority so you command the respect, loyalty and results you want, need and deserve.  Read it and reap.”
—Sam Horn, author of POP! and Tongue Fu!

“The Introverted Leader shows how to enhance your natural temperament and claim your place as an extraordinarily confident introverted leader in today’s demanding workplace. Jennifer’s strong track record of coaching the more reticent types among us shines through in this highly engaging and practical book.”
—Dr. Tony Alessandra, coauthor of The New Art of Managing People and The Platinum Rule

""I've been an executive coach for more than fifteen years and only wish I'd had this book sooner for my many introverted clients. Jennifer's four-step process—clear, concrete, and centered on results—helps ‘not-so-noisy’ leaders avoid career derailment and achieve success. If you're an introvert—or you coach, mentor or manage one—this is the book you've been waiting for.  Buy it, read it, and put it to work!”
—Sharon Jordan-Evans, executive coach and coauthor of Love ‘Em or Lose ‘Em: Getting Good People to Stay

""This is an important book for introverts and extraverts alike. Extraverts will benefit by gaining deeper insight into the mind of the introvert. Introverts will learn to embrace their introversion and the true value that they bring to the organizations they serve. The tips and tools that Kahnweiler introduces will help introverts navigate an extraverted corporate world. Shhh. Hear that? It’s the sound of your confidence growing!”
—Bill Treasurer, founder of Giant Leap Consulting and author of Courage Goes to Work

""Jennifer B. Kahnweiler's experience with numerous high-level organizations speaks loud and clear in this first-of-its-kind book for introverted leaders. Those who are reluctant to step out of the shadows will learn to do so while keeping their personality intact.""
—Tom Darrow, founder and Principal, Talent Connections, LLC
