Summary
Influence is getting things done without coercion. It's strength without force - mindfulness in action. Master influencers walk lightly, talk softly and have no need of a big stick, yet collective success hinges on their words and deeds. Anyone can be a quiet influencer. Featuring twelve specific practices, twelve typical pitfalls and dozens of powerful stories and examples, 'The Art of Quiet Influence' is a roadmap for the journey. Author Jocelyn Davis weaves together the timeless wisdom of Eastern thinkers - from Confucius to the Buddha, from Rumi to Gandhi - with research and insights from modern-day experts, revealing what's wrong with the Western view of influence as short-term persuasion and showing instead how to create trust-based collaborations with lasting impact
