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 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 extraverted leaders on how to lead introverts was also useful.
