Improving the performance of your employees involves one of the hardest challenges in the known universe: changing the way they think. In constant demand as a coach, speaker, and consultant to companies around the world, David Rock has proven that the secret to leading people (and living and working with them) is found in the space between their ears. “If people are being paid to think,” he writes, “isn’t it time the business world found out what the thing doing the work, the brain, is all about?”

Supported by the latest groundbreaking research, Quiet Leadership provides a brain-based approach that will help busy leaders, executives, and managers improve their own and their colleagues’ performance. Rock offers a practical, six-step guide to making permanent workplace performance change by unleashing higher productivity, new levels of morale, and greater job satisfaction.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Melissa | 10/19/2013

    " About half way through, and though I'm enjoying it, really mentally need something lighter right now. Just finished school and this book feels too much like more school work. Will definitely try again later, as I think the author has some good insights into how to coach versus manage staff. "
