Author of global bestselling book QUIET IMPACT, Sylvia Löhken, is an introvert herself. To be more precise: She is one of those soft-spoken individuals who is rarely recognized as such by others. Sylvia Löhken has had the privilege of accompanying introverted, intelligent people on their way to greater personal success for many years. She is convinced that introversion and extroversion are highly relevant diversity aspects.
After receiving her Ph.D. in linguistics, she worked for 10 years as a manager in Germany and Japan. She is also a certified coach, a S.C.I.L. Master, and a Reiss Profile Master. She writes and publishes regularly about her field.
Sylvia Löhken’s special strength is to translate academic knowledge into information that is both useful and exciting. She is a specialist in personality-based communication. In her lectures, personal coaching sessions, and workshops, she reveals which personality strengths individuals possess, and how they can use them to reach professional and personal goals. She knows exactly how to take scientific insights and complex information and put them into simple words and easy implementable strategies.
Sales of her book QUIET IMPACT have surpassed 7500,000 in 21 languages around the world, making it a communications bestseller.
Sylvia Löhken in the Media
Sylvia Loehken and the Introverts are still causing a stir in the German and English media scene. The first July 2015 issue of Der Spiegel (one of thelargest publications of its kind in Europe) includes an article on Introverts and Sylvia Loehken’s book Intros and Extros (English title: Power of Personality).
For a long time, we have been told that bigger is better, brash is best and shouting the loudest gets you the goods. But there has been a shift in the zeitgeist towards a more measured approach, and with it comes the rise of the introvert. Sylvia Loehken’s book, Quiet Impact, looks at 10 strengths that introverts display, as well as helping extroverts to understand their quieter counterparts.
Woman’s Way (UK), issue July 28, 2014
Introverted persons don’t like working in the limelight. However, says Sylvia Loehken, the quiet persons are the ones who create big things.
Loehken does not pressurize introverts to change. Her approach is much more useful: emphasize your strengths, and be aware of your challenges.

Some never speak up, even though they have a lot to say, and others never keep quiet, even if they should be better listeners at times. Employees with different temperaments clash at every company and because of their outward presentations, misunderstandings and conflicts sometimes occur. In her latest book Intros and Extros, Sylvia Löhken goes beyond clichés to answer the question, how quiet and not-so-quiet people think and act, where their strengths and weaknesses in the business environment lie, and how they can best be supported.
