The Art of Quiet Influence: Timeless Wisdom for Leading without Authority
Date: June 2019
Duration: 8 hours 46 minutes
Anyone can be a quiet influencer. But not everyone knows how.
Drawing on the enduring wisdom of the Buddha, Confucius, Rumi, Gandhi, and others, The Art of Quiet Influence shows anyone, not just bosses, how to use influence without authority, a key mindfulness principle, to get things done at work and in life. Through the classic wisdom of twelve Eastern sages, relevant insights from influence research, and anecdotes and advice from twenty-five contemporary experts, Davis lays out a path for becoming a 'mainspring,' the unobtrusive yet powerful influencer first introduced in her book The Greats on Leadership.
Organized around three core influence practices-Invite Participation, Share Power, and Aid Progress-listeners will learn how to take mindfulness practice 'out of the gym and onto the field,' while gaining the confidence and practical know-how to be influential in whatever role they occupy.
