The Art of Quiet Influence
Eastern Wisdom and Mindfulness for Work and Life
By Jocelyn Davis
Mindfulness meets execution . . . at work. The wisdom of 13 Eastern sages, augmented by modern research on workplace influence, is the basis for profound yet practical advice on getting things done without force.
The Art of Quiet Influence shows anyone how to use influence, a key mindfulness principle, to get things done at work. Through the classic wisdom of 13 Eastern sages (especially the Buddha), relevant insights from influence research, and anecdotes and advice from 25 contemporary experts, Davis lays out a path for becoming a 'mainspring,' an unobtrusive yet powerful influencer.
Organised around three core influence practices: Invite Participation, Share Power, and Aid Progress, readers 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.
