Known as the Four P's, the four step process includes preparation (carefully devise a game plan for any potentially anxiety-producing situation); presence (knowing that you're prepared, be completely focused on the present moment); push (with this firm foundation, go beyond your comfort zone); and finally, practice practice, practice.
Kahnweiler also provides numerous tips and examples, as well as revealing Introverted Leader Quiz that pinpoints where focused attention will produce maximum results.This book will teach you to embrace your natural work style in order to advance your career, get the most out of the people around you, and add value to your organization.
