From the Publisher:
A leading management consultant draws on his seven organizational rules for improving effectiveness to present an eighth principle, voice, that is based on the right balance of talent, need, conscience, and passion.In the more than fifteen years since its publication, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has become an international phenomenon with over fifteen million copies sold. Tens of millions of people have dramatically improved their lives and organizations by applying the principles of Stephen R. Covey's classic.
Being effective as individuals and organizations is no longer merely an option -- survival in today's world requires it. Accessing the higher levels of human genius and motivation in today's new reality requires a sea change in thinking, a whole new habit. The crucial challenge of our world today is this: to find our voice and inspire others to find theirs. It is what Covey calls the 8th Habit.
So many people feel frustrated, discouraged, unappreciated, and undervalued -- with little or no sense of voice or unique contribution. The 8th Habit is the answer to the soul's yearning for greatness, the organization's imperative for significance and superior results, and humanity's search for its "voice." Profound, compelling, and stunningly timely, this groundbreaking new audiobook will transform the way we think about ourselves and our purpose in life, about our organizations, and about humankind.
Stephen Covey's 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE has proven itself to be an enduring work, with relevance far beyond the self-help category. In THE 8TH HABIT, Covey builds on his earlier work and offers lessons in leadership for what he sees as the new age of the "knowledge worker." In This paradigmatic shift in how we see and talk about workers and organizations, Covey addresses the individual's need for fulfillment, and he offers specific ways leaders can "develop their own voice and then help others develop theirs." Covey offers practical ways to motivate and inspire and to recognize the laws of business and society. The goal is to help people grow, and for organizations to get real results. As usual, what Covey has to say about business applies across the board to all organizations--the family, schools, government, etc.
"It takes the likes of Covey...to hit directly on the issue confronting individuals and corporations today: the gap between effectiveness and greatness." - Barbara Jacobs 01/01/2005
