Quiet Leader, Loud Results: How Quiet Leaders Drive Outcomes that Speak for Themselves

This book shares real stories from quiet leaders who have navigated the difficulties of having a quieter personality, succeeding both for themselves and their organizations.

Author Ankit Mahadevia—a quiet leader and founder and CEO of nine biotechnology companies—is living proof that the strategies he offers to his fellow quiet personalities work. He shares the triumphs and pitfalls of his own journey throughout the book alongside other quiet leaders.
In an increasingly complex and chaotic world where leaders are in short supply, people of all personality types are needed to lead. Through stories, practical suggestions, and real-world strategies, the book will help quiet leaders make their results speak louder than they do—while employing a style that’s true to who they are.
