Quiet: The Power of Introversion

What is better for educational leadership – introversion or extroversion?

Interestingly, more and more people are saying that introverts lead in a manner more consistent with organizations in the 21st Century. Their leadership is soft spoken, but carries a powerful punch with consistency, thoughtfulness, and intention. They are adaptive, understanding, and deeply prepared for any situation.

Susan Cain’s new book titled, Quiet: The Power of Introverts has fascinating insights in the incredible strength of introversion in leading. Here is a link to her blog:
