The Art of Quiet Influence
November 1, 2019
Hosted by Dr. Matthew Allen Woolsey
The topic for this show is based on Jocelyn Davis's latest book, The Art of Quiet Influence. In it she weaves together timeless wisdom from the great sages of India, China, Japan, and the Islamic world—from Confucius to the Buddha, Rumi to Gandhi—with research and insights from modern-day experts and her own experience. Says Stephen M.R. Covey, bestselling author of The Speed of Trust: “Jocelyn Davis’s terrific book boldly asserts that a person cannot gain influence over someone by using position, authority, or power to coerce … Genuine influence must be earned and won. It is through the quiet strength of caring, trusting, and affirming individuals that this is truly accomplished. A tremendous and relevant read!”
