An ABC Favorite because:
This title is one of the longest running ABC Favorites, and is still going strong. Covey's methods are still valid!
The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People is a comprehensive program based on developing an awareness of how perceptions and assumptions hinder success, in business as well as personal relationships. Covey's approach will help broaden your way of thinking and lead to greater opportunities and effective problem solving.
Be Pro-Active. Start with a clear destination to understand where you are now, where you're going and what you value most. Manage yourself - organize and execute around priorities. See life as a cooperative, not a comprehensive arena where success is not achieved at the expense or exclusion of the success of others. Build the skills of empathetic listening that inspires openness and trust. Synergize. Preserve and enhance your greatest asset, yourself, by renewing the physical, spiritual, mental and social/emotional dimensions of your nature. These skills are at the heart of the seven habits. To accomplish them, Covey calls for a "paradigm shift" - a change in perception and interpretation of how the world works. Covey takes you through this change, which affects how you perceive and act regarding productivity, time management, positive thinking, learning how with initiative rather than reacting. This is no quick fix self help book - the concepts are sometimes complicated and require real study rather than skimming. However, apply the habits, and you'll be on your way to 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.
