Book Review – Quiet Leadership

Quiet Leadership: Help People Think Better – Don’t Tell Them What to Do!

By David Rock, Published 2006

First half of book was very good. Good insights on listening and how people become more accepting of ideas. At the end of each chapter is a practical exercise to help you “know thyself.” A few seem contrived. Still many will give you a better understanding of how you interact and respond to others. The second half of the book was less valuable. It felt labored and less realistic as I though about conversations I have. If you read this book, your mind will likely wander to others around you. The good ideas in this book will not catch on unless you give them a try.

Rating: ♦♦♦♦◊

Recommendation: Read and try a few of the ideas.
