Little Book of Quiet (Hardcover)
about this item
Some of the most influential people in history have made themselves heard despite their quiet voices and and personalities, such as Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and Bill Gates. The Little Book of Quiet shows introverts how to harness their many positive qualities, and helps extroverts to allow more quiet into their lives. Now that everyone is connected digitally 24/7, more emphasis is being placed on achieving higher emotional intelligence (EQ) to empathize and negotiate with others - in other words, enhancing people skills. To be a good listener is considered a key people skill, and a basic requirement of being a good listener is to be quiet when the other person is talking. The book also shows how an understanding of left-brain and right-brain thinking can help achieve a better balance between the two and how to recognize these same attributes in others. It explores ways of achieving more quiet in our lives and less troubled minds, through tips and exercises and through mindfulness and understanding.
