Quiet Girls Can Run the World: Owning Your Power When You're Not the "Alpha" in the Room by Rebecca Holman
This Lean In for introverts empowers women who may not be the loudest and most assertive people in the room to lead on their own terms.
Our culture tells us that in order to succeed at work and in life, we need to be vocal, assertive leaders; but a strong team requires multiple perspectives and personality types--even, or especially, the ones that often go under the radar. In this deeply relatable book, Rebecca Holman shares research and her own hard-won experiences to empower other introvert women to harness their strengths, rather than conform to a one-size-fits-all template of success.
Quiet Girls Can Run the World shows introverts how to lead in ways that come naturally--by nurturing the talents of others, taking the time to reflect before making a decision, exercising emotional intelligence, and leaving egos at the door. In highlighting the power of "quiet" qualities, Holman also encourages us to push outside our comfort zones so we can stand our ground in expressing our views, work well with those who have different personalities, and bring our A game to each public speaking opportunity.
