An introvert, simply put, is an individual who is uncomfortable in the spotlight. This discomfort can have a direct impact on your career. Ms. Petrilli provides an action oriented approach for an introvert to deal with their fear of visibility. The concrete and specific approach Ms. Petrilli provides allows an introvert to put their fear behind them and to move confidently forward. Whether networking, participating on a team, or managing your career, all introverts have known this barrier. Ms. Petrilli not only provides a means to deal with these situations, but she explains how to turn your introverted nature into an advantage.
If you are leading or working with introverts, Ms. Petrilli's approach provides you with action steps to draw the best out of your introverted teammates.
I highly recommend this book to introverts and leaders.
Lisa refers to not faking it. However, I viewed my leadership responsibility as a role that had duties and expectations to fulfil. I observed successful leaders and tried to emulate their ability to reach out to others to welcome them and affirm them.
I think the book is best suited for introverts who have been newly thrust into leadership. The section for extroverted on how to lead introverts was also useful.
- It empowered me to me more effective in how I communicate with people at work.
- My self-worth increased because I realized I am not worse than a successful introvert, but different and can be as successful as them.
- I loved the vibe of this book: kindness, positive approach and encouraging the reader to create a better world for himself and others.
I failed to see how inviting a complete stranger, through internet, one on one face to face, suck any less. In fact, I rather go to that conference instead of going through the invitation process.
And did she just cited the Wikipedia as reference? seriously?
The solution to gain visibility to upper management, is, one-on-one coffee meeting, again, this time with the upper management people, brilliant.
Oh, she did cited the Wikipedia, again, seriously.
Finishing the book is like, oh my god, wtf did I just read.
Guys, don't buy this book, I normally don't do reviews, but this one sucked so bad that I feel I have the responsibility to warn the world. You know, like those old commercial that has a guy that has cancer telling people not to smoke.
Well, it's just like that, don't buy this book, and, smoking is probably bad for you too.
