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.
In The Introvert's Guide to Success in Business and Leadership, Lisa Petrilli makes clear that the introvert-extrovert divide isn't clear cut--and that many of us share traits from both categories. We need to understand these, and understand how to use our strengths to thrive.
The book is, at heart, a primer for introverts on how to thrive at work. But Petrilli also offers advice for managing the introverts on your team (including, perhaps, yourself), including giving them time to think and not assuming that quiet equates to not having anything to say.
The Introvert's Guide to Success is a quick read, but it's one packed with information to help introverts thrive in the office, in the boardroom, and while looking for that next great opportunity. Whether you're an introvert yourself or just work with (and/or manage) them, you'll learn something about leadership, networking, managing and motivating employees, and more.
- 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.
