The most inspiring and impactful books ever written, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 8th Habit have captivated audiences for nearly three decades. They have transformed the lives of presidents and CEOs, educators and parents—millions of people of all ages and occupations.
The 7 Habits have become famous and are integrated into everyday thinking by millions and millions of people. Why? Because they work!
With Sean Covey’s added takeaways on how the habits can be used in our modern age, the wisdom of the 7 Habits will be refreshed for a new generation of leaders.
Habit 1: Be Proactive
Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
Habit 3: Put First Things First
Habit 4: Think Win/Win
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
Habit 6: Synergize
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
But accessing the higher levels of human genius in today’s new reality requires a change in thinking: a new mindset and a new skill-set—in short, a 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. 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.”
Now in one audio edition, you can enjoy all the benefits from two of Covey’s most influential books. With this tried and tested expert advice, we can change the way we think about ourselves, our purpose in life, our organizations, and humankind.
A Must Read!
I've read "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" and listened to "The 8th Habit" through an audio book format. If you are like me and wish to gain deeper understanding of life and practical advice on how it relates to business, these two titles are a must. Stephen Covey did a wonderful job with simple yet practical application of all eight habits. I recommend reading/listening to both in their respective order!
Too high level.
While there is no doubt that Covey's 7 Habits is a must read and more importantly a must-practice book, the audio version here seems to play out like the back cover summary of a paper-back. It's not a bad high level overview but could have definitely contained more detaile explanations. I also am confused as to why it is referenced as a three hour book but comes in at 2hours 26 mins.
A simple question
I haven't downloaded this because I have a question: How is it that the "3 Hour Abridgment" only contains 2 hours and 26 minutes of audio?
