An Introvert Interviews an Extrovert on Introverted Leaders

3

I recently had a few moments to interview Jennifer Kahnweiler, the author of The Introverted Leader: Building on Your Quiet Strength. We had the opportunity to talk about the strengths and weaknesses of introverted leaders. We talked about whether or not extroverts still make good leaders. Jennifer gave me some advice on how I, as an introvert, can become a better leader. And, among other things, she recommended what I should or shouldn’t drink at office parties.

Here’s the 14-minute interview in its entirety:

Just so you know… Jennifer gave me her book to review, but I only recommend books on my blog that I believe will benefit you in your leadership.
