From the author that brought you the New York Times bestseller The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People comes a foundational guide to leadership. How do individuals and organizations survive and thrive amid tremendous change? Why are efforts to improve organizations failing despite the millions of dollars in time, capital, and human effort being spent on them? How do we unleash creativity, talent, and energy within ourselves--and others--in the midst of pressure? Is it realistic to believe that balance among personal, family, and professional life is possible? Stephen R. Covey demonstrates that the answer to these and other dilemmas is principle-centered leadership, a long-term, inside-out approach to developing people and organizations. The key to dealing with the challenges that face us today is to develop a principle-centered core within both ourselves and our organizations. Dr. Covey offers insights and guidelines that can help you apply these principles both at work and at home--leading not just to a new understanding of how to increase quality and productivity, but also to a new appreciation of the importance of building personal and professional relationships. The result is a more balanced, more rewarding, and more effective life.
