Quiet Impact

How to be a successful Introvert

By Sylvia Loehken

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

International bestseller which will take the UK by storm.

Most literature on business, communication and success is focused on extroverts, who feel comfortable networking, talking and being the centre of attention. But at least 30% of the population are introverts, and they are now finding their voice.

Quiet Impact - How to Be a Successful Introvert is already an international phenomenon. Using the latest psychological research, and Dr Loehken's own extensive experience coaching introverts in the workplace, it is packed with practical advice which is easy to implement.

Dr Loehken identifies 10 strengths specific strengths that introverts often have (such as independence, perseverance and writing), and also identifies ten specific hurdles they often have to overcome (such as hyperstimulation, intellectualism and fear of conflict).

Biographical Notes

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.

The Intelligence Trap

David Robson
Authors:
David Robson

'As a rule, I have found that the greater brain a man has, and the better he is educated, the easier it has been to mystify him,' Houdini to Arthur Conan DoyleSmart people are not only just as prone to making mistakes as everyone else-they may be even more susceptible to them. This is the "intelligence trap," the subject of David Robson's fascinating and provocative debut. Packed with cutting-edge research, historical case studies, entertaining stories, and practical advice, The Intelligence Trap explores the flaws in our understanding of intelligence and expertise, and reveals the ways that even the brightest minds and talented organizations can backfire - from some of Thomas Edison's worst ideas to failures at NASA, Nokia, and the FBI. With a knack for explaining complex ideas and featuring timeless lessons from Socrates to Benjamin Franklin to Richard Feynman and the latest behavioral science, Robson shows how to build a cognitive toolkit to avoid mistakes and protect ourselves from misinformation and fake news.

Fight

Hazel Gale
Authors:
Hazel Gale

On a cold December afternoon in 2013, Hazel Gale was declared the English ABA Boxing Champion. On paper, this wasn't her greatest success in sport, nor was it even her best-fought bout. But as her hand was raised that day, Hazel felt a surge of alien emotion. She wasn't sure whether it was happiness, pride or just a good old-fashioned sense of achievement. But it was new. Looking back, she can tell you that what she'd felt upon winning up until that day had been shame. This time, she owned the triumph. Competing in the sports of kickboxing and boxing for almost a decade, Hazel battled with the monsters of her mind on a daily basis - anxiety, depression, eating disorders and, eventually, burnout. FIGHT takes you on her journey from a life of fearful self-destruction to that moment when she finally felt deserving of success.With self-awareness comes immense power. It was cognitive hypnotherapy that helped Hazel uncover both the root of her problem and the key to her recovery. Ultimately, it was her monster that showed her the way back into the ring and to a state of emotional and physical balance. Feeling compelled to share these profound benefits, she qualified as a therapist and is now one of the most sought-after practitioners in the country.Fight is like a one-to-one session with Hazel. Through vulnerable storytelling, digestible theory and pocket-sized therapeutic processes, this book will teach you how to alchemise your moments of self-sabotage. It's time to emerge victorious from your own battles, whatever they may be.
