Publisher's Summary

Anyone can be a quiet influencer. But not everyone knows how. 

Drawing on the enduring wisdom of the Buddha, Confucius, Rumi, Gandhi, and others, The Art of Quiet Influence shows anyone, not just bosses, how to use influence without authority, a key mindfulness principle, to get things done at work and in life. Through the classic wisdom of 12 Eastern sages, relevant insights from influence research, and anecdotes and advice from 25 contemporary experts, Davis lays out a path for becoming a "mainspring", the unobtrusive yet powerful influencer first introduced in her book The Greats on Leadership

Organized around three core influence practices - Invite Participation, Share Power, and Aid Progress - listeners will learn how to take mindfulness practice "out of the gym and onto the field", while gaining the confidence and practical know-how to be influential in whatever role they occupy.

Not what I expected

Too much ancient history. What do I need to learn to increase influence. I hope that part is coming at some point

it took a bit...

but about halfway through the book, the narrator and storyline started falling into place.
it starts by sounding a bit like manipulation...but by the end, I found I was able to pull quite a bit for my personal and professional world.
