In The Art of Quiet Influence, Jocelyn Davis brings old philosophical wisdom to shed light on the best practices to influence groups of people.

It's not just another business or leadership book. In this interesting book, Jocelyn Davis draws on the wisdom of the old masters -- from Confucius to Rumi to Buddha to Gandhi – to provide timeless advice for dealing with current leadership and business challenges.

Lots of interesting leadership and influence ideas. I liked the narrative of leadership insights from various Eastern sages. However, I didn't buy the binary "east vs west" aspect of the book. The book was a mix of "ancient wisdom," personal reflections, and (a bit too much) history of the Forum company. Still, overall, I enjoyed reading and reflecting on the book.
