News & Opinion: David Rock/Quiet Leadership Interview

By: 800-CEO-READ @ 6:56 AM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

This week's interview is with David Rock, author of Quiet Leadership: Six Steps to Transforming Performance in the Workplace.

I think he has something interesting things to say about being a better leader and manager. His work is based on neurological research and he leads his book with these ideas. This is what initially drew me into his book.

David says that only one in twenty conversations create the change that leaders are looking for. In addition to that, a 45-minute conversation only contains five to ten minutes of useful content. So, David's work is about having the right conversation the first time and only spending the time necessary to get the results needed.

I might be partial, but this one is worth a listen.
