Stephen R. Covey: The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People

Redacción

Covey presents an approach to being effective in attaining goals by aligning oneself to what he calls "true north" principles of a character ethic that he presents as universal and timeless.

In The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, author Stephen R. Covey presents a holistic, integrated, principle-centered approach for solving personal and professional problems. With penetrating insights and pointed anecdotes, Covey reveals a step-by-step pathway for living with fairness, integrity, service, and human dignity–principles that give us the security to adapt to change and the wisdom and power to take advantage of the opportunities that change creates.

Stephen Covey will be remembered most as the author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, which sold over 25 million copies. Although they weren’t completely original thoughts, the labels he gave the habits made them memorable:

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

Habit 6: Synergize

Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
