An inspirational and practical guide to leadership from the New York Times–bestselling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
Covey, named one of Time magazine’s 25 Most Influential Americans, is a renowned authority on leadership, whose insightful advice has helped millions. In his follow-up to The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, he poses these fundamental questions:
How do we as individuals and organizations survive and thrive amid tremendous change?Why are efforts to improve falling so short in real results?How do we unleash the creativity, talent, and energy within ourselves and others?Is it realistic to believe that balance among personal and professional life is possible?
The key to dealing with the challenges that we face is to identify a principle-centered core within ourselves and our institutions. In Principle-Centered Leadership, Covey outlines a long-term, inside-out approach to developing people and organizations.
Offering insights and guidelines on how to apply these principles both at work and at home, Covey posits that these steps will lead not only to an increase in productivity and quality of work, but also to a new appreciation of personal and professional relationships as we strive to enjoy a more balanced, rewarding, and ultimately more effective life.
“There seems to be no limit to the number of writers offering answers to the great perplexities of life. Covey, however, is the North Star in this field . . . without hesitation, strongly recommended.” —Library Journal
