As per David Rock’s claim through his book: ‘Quiet leaders are masters at bringing out the best performance in others. They improve the thinking of people around them -literally improving the way their brains process information -without telling anyone what to do. Given how many people in today’s companies are being paid to think and analyze, improving others’ thinking is one of the fastest ways to improve performance’.
Quiet Leadership as a manual/ book – offers a practical, six-step guide to making permanent workplace performance change and to unleashing higher productivity, new levels of morale, and greater job satisfaction.
In my opinion, Critical thinking or critical reasoning, also called analytical thinking, is clear rational thinking involving self-critique to improve one’s thinking process. Its details vary among those who define it. During the process of critical thinking, ideas should be reasoned, well thought out, and judged. Critical thinking is also defined as the process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating information to reach an answer or conclusion.
I like the way the author David Rock explains through his book, ‘placement, questioning and clarifying’ as a cyclic process adopted at various stages to develop ingenious thinking process in others. In fact, it goes without saying, each individual alone knows himself the best and as a transformation leader we need to encourage as well as enable him to think on his own in order to actualize his potential within the opportunity available.
