No current Talk conversations about this book.

This book is great for introverts to understand how they can use their unique powers to excel in their chosen careers whether it is a desk job, sales job or as an entrepreneur.

Jennifer claims to be an extrovert herself but I must say that she has observed her introvert colleagues were closely. She talks about the six strengths of introverts: Quiet Time, Preparation, Engaged Listening, Focused Conversation, Writing and Thoughtful Use of Social Media.

Her tips are indeed helpful and practical for both introverts and extroverts. Introverts may be good at listening but they may need to work on improving their skills. Extroverts too can learn a lot from engaged listening and focused conversations to become more approachable.

Jennifer also uses real life examples of how different people have used these strengths in different settings which is very valuable. It also makes the book more interesting to read.

You can also test your strengths in these six fields using what the author calls "Quiet Influence Quotient" or your QIQ to know how well you are doing with your six strengths and areas where you need to improve.

Not all strengths may be relevant. For example I am an Author and therefore writing and thoughtful use of social media is more important to me than engaged listening and focused conversation. Nevertheless, I consider all skills relevant and important.

I have no hesitation in recommending this book to anyone. ( )
