Being an introvert doesn't have to mean being shut out of every important conversation, writes Jennifer Kahnweiler, author of "The Introverted Leader: Building on Your Quiet Strength." Making an impact as an introvert requires a little planning, she notes, like having an excellent question or a great story at the ready. If getting up close and personal every day is too daunting, she suggests using social media to get conversations rolling -- just be sure to have all the most important discussions face-to-face.
