Carlo Ancelotti is one of the greatest managers of all time, with five Champions League titles to his name. Yet his approach could not be further from the aggressive theatricals favoured by many of his rivals. His understated style has earned him the fierce loyalty of players like David Beckham, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo. In Quiet Leadership, Ancelotti reveals the full, riveting story of his managerial career - his methods, mentors, mistakes and triumphs - and takes us inside the dressing room to trace the characters, challenges and decisions that have shaped him. The result is both a scintillating memoir and a rare insight into the business of leadership.

And most of them are so extremely well-known that you will be surprised. * More importantly, they succeeded not because they could overcome their introversion, BUT because of their introversion. * Introverts have been successful in supposedly all extroverted fields of leadership be it military, politics, academics, or religion. Some led their troops into the battlefield while others led quietly, non-violently or passively. So what has made these introverted leaders so successful? * That they had a rich vision or imagination. * Next, these leaders took small but concrete steps to realise their vision. * Third that they had an analytical mind. They took the time to think, plan and act decisively. * And finally, they led more by action and example than by words. So, ladies and gentlemen, be prepared to immerse yourselves into legendary tales of courage and valour shown by quiet, shy and sensitive men and women from all around the world.

Quiet by Susan Cain will change how you think about introverts forever A Sunday Times and New York Times Bestseller Our lives are driven by a fact that most of us can't name and don't understand. It defines who our friends and lovers are, which careers we choose, and whether we blush when we're embarrassed. That fact is whether we're an introvert or an extrovert. The introvert/extrovert divide is the most fundamental dimension of personality. And at least a third of us are on the introverted side. Some of the world's most talented people are introverts. Without them we wouldn't have the Apple computer, the theory of relativity and Van Gogh's sunflowers. Yet extroverts have taken over. Shyness, sensitivity and seriousness are often seen as being negative. Introverts feel reproached for being the way they are. In Quiet, Susan Cain shows how the brain chemistry of introverts and extroverts differs, and how society misunderstands and undervalues introverts. She gives introverts the tools to better understand themselves and take full advantage of their strengths. Passionately argued, superbly researched, and filled with real stories, Quiet will permanently change how we see introverts - and how you see yourself. 'I can't get Quiet out of my head. It is an important book - so persuasive and timely and heartfelt it should inevitably effect change in schools and offices' Jon Ronson, The Guardian 'Susan Cain's Quiet has sparked a quiet revolution. In our booming culture, hers is a still, small voice that punches above its weight. Perhaps rather than sitting back and asking people to speak up, managers and company leaders might lean forward and listen' Megan Walsh, The Times 'Quiet is a very timely book, and Cain's central thesis is fresh and important. Maybe the extrovert ideal is no longer as powerful as it was; perhaps it is time we all stopped to listen to the still, small voice of calm' Daisy Goodwin, The Sunday Times Susan Cain is the owner of The Negotiation Company, a firm that trains people in negotiation and communication skills. Her clients include Merrill Lynch, Standard & Poor, University of Chicago Business School and many of the US's most powerful law firms. She previously practiced corporate law for seven years with Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton. She lives in New York with her husband and two sons.

Many of us love books while reading them and maybe they will echo with us a few weeks after but 2 years later we can’t remember if we have read it or not. And that’s a shame. We remember that at that time, the book meant a lot to us. Why is it that 2 years later we have forgotten everything? That’s not good.

If you trust the source you don’t need the arguments. So much of a book is arguing its points, but often you don’t need the argument if you trust the source you can just get the point.

This book summary and analysis was created for individuals who want to extract the essential contents and are too busy to go through the full version. This book is not intended to replace the original book. Instead, we highly encourage you to buy the full version. More than a third of all the people we will meet in our lifetime are introverts. They are those who would rather listen than speak; who prefer working in solitude than in teams; who create and innovate but aren’t as inclined to promote themselves. Steve Wozniak, Dr. Seuss, Chopin, and Rosa Parks are only some of the names of the introverts who have moved the world. Author Susan Cain claims that introverts are terribly undervalued in society. Beginning from the 20th century, Cain traces the rise of the Extrovert Ideal and discovers how deep it has been embedded in our culture. In Quiet, she introduces us to introverts who have found success in life (despite being told otherwise)—from a clever and spirited public speaker who retreats into solitude once his talks are over, to a trailblazing salesman who has found power in asking questions. Quiet is written with passion, its arguments supported by thorough research and experiences by people in the real world. It contains the power to reframe society’s view of introverts for the better, and just as important—if not more—introverts’ view of themselves. Wait no more, take action and get this book now!

Armin Meyer's distinguished career in public service spanned more than thirty tumultuous years of hot and cold war, beginning in World War II with a secret mission to Eritrea. In the postwar Foreign Service, he served in Afghanistan, and his twenty-year involvement in the quest for Middle East peace included postings in Baghdad, Beirut, and in Washington, D.C. in the State Department's Near East Bureau, where he dealt with Nasserism, Hawk missiles, and Arab refugees. Meyer served as President Kennedy's ambassador to Beirut, assisting in Lebanon's first peaceful presidential transition; as President Johnson's ambassador to the Shah's Iran, dealing with arms, oil, and the Gulf median line challenges; and as President Nixon's ambassador to Japan where he presided over negotiations for Okinawa's reversion to Japanese administration, which ensured the extension of the U.S.-Japan mutual security treaty, and mellowed the Nixon "China shock." He also served as State's first coordinator for combating terrorism. In Quiet Diplomacy, Ambassador Meyer analyzes experiences and lessons learned, and offers valuable guidance for today's diplomacy.

Written for college leaders at all levels as well as for trustees, this book engages the reader, via narrative and analysis, with the reflective and practical knowledge essential to a constructive legacy. Leaders of colleges and universities hold in trust an enterprise of complex mission, governance, and outcome. Most will take office with accompanying media celebration of their past records and future promise. Each will exit with a legacy. A few will leave behind tragic legacies of defeated spirits, corrupted organizations, and shameful ethical records. We may hope for collegiate leaders who will leave behind faculty and staff talents of greater promise, worthy goals achieved in concert with faculty and staff, and value cultures that inspire curiosity, courage, and compassion.
