Quietly Powerful: How your quiet nature is your hidden leadership strength
Paperback – October 31, 2019
Quiet professionals have immense value to contribute to organisations. However, they are often hidden and overlooked, not just because of their personality but for many other complex reasons. In this fascinating book, Megumi Miki shares her own experience and that of Quietly Powerful leaders who have achieved great success while remaining authentic.
Megumi believes that a shift in our beliefs about leadership will allow talented quiet professionals to view their quiet nature as a strength and to succeed in their own way. She aims to empower quieter professionals and encourages organisations to expand their ideas about what good leadership looks, sounds and feels like.

people for leadership roles, and we will all win.'
Dr Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, psychologist and entrepreneur
'An important read for all leaders who'd like to optimise their hidden talent.'

'In a world full of chaos, noise and complexity this is a timely book reminding us not to overlook the power and possibility of quiet.'
