Quiet Leadership: Six Steps to Transforming Performance at Work, by David Rock, HarperCollins Publishers, 2006.
I’ve had this hidden gem of a book tucked up on my bookshelf for several months. I recently pulled it out after both reading and listening to Rock’s more recent book, Your Brain at Work 2009. In both books, Rock helps us understand how our brains really do work (or don’t) and how this understanding can enhance our own performance, reduce unhealthy stress and allow us to enjoy our lives even more. In Quiet Leadership, Rock speaks directly to anyone in a leadership position and challenges them to get out of the way and let others do what they were hired to do – think!
