Mouse in the Room: Because the Elephant isn't Alone
by David Wood,Jack Canfield
From the Foreword by Jack Canfield: "Mouse in the Room will change your company, your life, and the world. We long to be seen and heard, to be known and loved for who we really are. We crave connection—both at home and at work. And yet we’ve been conditioned to hide behind a mask, afraid to reveal our true selves for fear of being rejected, getting a bad reaction, or losing something valuable. Not only do we often ignore the elephant in the room, we also ignore the more subtle animals in the room as well. These are our true feelings, thoughts and body sensations, of which the other person may have no clue. David calls this ignoring the mice in the room! Sadly this robs us of the joy that comes from true intimacy, self-confidence and self-expression . At work it creates disconnected teams, higher turnover, lower productivity, and leaders who don’t inspire trust. And it leads to some of the greatest crises our world is facing today. In this ground-breaking book, David shows us how the simple yet courageous act of noticing and naming our “mice” can profoundly change our lives, our work culture, and the world . If you want to transform your parenting, romantic and social relationships, read this book. If you want to create a culture of belonging that attracts and retains top talent and builds thriving teams, read this book. Happy mouse-naming!
