I learned very early in my career that the way I led was different from my extraverted colleagues. I came to understand that if I wanted to receive top assignments, get promoted, and garner support for my ideas I needed to approach the challenges of business and leadership in a uniquely savvy way.
Alas, today I am a proud introvert who has learned the secrets to using her introversion wisely in business and leadership. I learned them mostly through hard work, though sometimes by accident, and now have a much better understanding of the power of my introversion. Being an introvert is truly an advantage in business and leadership if you know how to leverage it, and if you remain true to yourself.
I am out-of-my-mind thrilled to announce that the “Introvert’s Guide” blog series I wrote has been turned into an eBook!
I am sharing my experiences and knowledge with you so that you can achieve success – on your own terms – in business, leadership and ultimately in all aspects of your life.
“The Introvert’s Guide to Success in Business and Leadership” will be launching on Sunday, November 27th during #Blogchat on Twitter!
I will be “seated virtually” in the Guest Co-Host chair next to the Emperor of Twitter Chats (my term, he’s actually quite humble), Mack Collier, and we’ll be chatting about how introverts can boost their careers through blogging.
I couldn’t be more excited and honored to be launching the eBook at #Blogchat! You see, it was the week of my blog’s launch back in May of 2010 that I wrote my first post in the “Introvert’s Guide” series, so the two are inextricably linked. More importantly, it was the advice I gleaned by attending #Blogchat during the nine months leading up to the launch of this Visionary Leadership Blog that gave me the confidence to start writing a blog, and it was the encouragement and the support of the #Blogchat Community that made possible the blog launch of my dreams and The Introvert’s Guide Blog Series.
About The Introverts Guide to Success in Business and Leadership eBook:
I just love the story that the eBook’s cover picture tells… As introverts we get our energy from our inner world, so when we show up in the outer world of business and leadership we tend to “hide,” sometimes subconsciously, through our choices (when we avoid networking events, for example) and decisions (such as choosing not to tout our brilliant ideas).
While this is natural, it won’t help us to be abundantly successful in business and leadership. And ultimately, it holds us back from experiencing all of the richness of life.
This eBook gives you all the advice you need to be fully and vividly visible in your life – but in ways that you’ll be comfortable with; I promise!
Topics covered in the eBook include:
- Discover your introversion superpowers
- Master the art of networking… Learn how to network successfully, and comfortably, within organizations as well as at conferences and events
- “Stand out in a crowd” in a way that’s appealing and effective
- The core principles of success you simply must (and can!) master
