From the Publisher
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.
A leading management consultant and author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People 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 and that can profoundly transform the world around us.
