A review of Petrilli, The Introvert’s Guide to Success in Business and Leadership

Reading this book as an introverted leader, I’m encouraged to see that Lisa recommends and extends many of the same techniques I’ve found essential. I found that meeting individually with members of my admin council was a key enabler in a successful year. I also appreciated knowing that an introvert can rise to C level leadership.

Lisa refers to not faking it. However, I viewed my leadershipĀ  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 extraverted leaders on how to lead introverts was also useful.
