An Introvert’s Ultimate Guide to Becoming an Inspiring Leader

Discover How to Bring to Life Your Hidden Talents and Strengths

Leadership for introverts resembles a tree. For a tree’s canopy to be expansive and beautiful, it must have healthy roots, strong branches, and an environment in which it can flourish.

For an introvert to flourish in a corporate environment, you must learn how to lead with authenticity and certainty.

The Corporate Introvert will show you exactly how to build a strong tree that empowers you to:

  • Become a respected, successful leader
  • Build confidence and realize your dreams
  • Capitalize on your talents, values and passions
  • Shed your mask and master your energy “battery”
  • Shine in meetings, networking, communications, and more

Steve Friedman has packed this blueprint for inner growth with stories and models that will impact you immediately. You’ll gain essential insights into how you can stop acting and embrace your true self.

“This empowering book shows us how to nourish our roots so we can lead —
and thrive — with our unique introverted strengths.”
-Matthew Pollard, author of the bestselling Introvert’s Edge Series

The Corporate Introvert doesn’t seek to change you. Instead, it reveals how you can be a great leader and still be you.

Author Bio

If I Knew Then What I Know Now

“I have finally realized, to be happy I don’t need to change myself, I just need to be myself.”
-Steve Friedman

When I wrote my memoir, In Search of Courage, I realized that the common thread of introversion I thought was a curse all my life was actually a blessing. For years I wore a mask at work and coped with my stress by sacrificing my health and personal relationships. Now I embrace my own introversion as a toolkit to become a happier me.

My purpose is to help other introverts accelerate the process by which they discover their strengths and apply them to their personal and professional lives. I seek to inspire others to overcome past obstacles and find joy, pride, and confidence in life.

I’ve retired from corporate America and enjoy sharing articles, books, quizzes, and resources through my website, I’m excited to combine my career experiences and my enthusiastic belief in introverts through my new leadership book, The Corporate Introvert: How to Lead and Thrive with Confidence.
