Description

From Stephen R. Covey, bestselling author of The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness, comes the accompanying personal workbook that will help you further realize the power of this new habit. The world has changed dramatically since Covey's classic The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People was published. The challenges we all face in our relationships, families, professional lives and communities are of an entirely new order of magnitude. In order to thrive in what Covey calls the new Knowledge Worker Age, we need to build on and move beyond effectiveness -- to greatness. Accessing the higher reaches of human genius and motivation in today's reality requires a whole new habit. The questionnaires, tests, self-assessments, and other exercises in this workbook provide a hands-on approach to developing the mind-set, skill-set and tool-set for achieving greatness in the Knowledge Worker Age. The 8th Habit will transform the way you think about yourself and your purpose in life, about your organization and about humankind.

Review quote

Warren Bennis Distinguished Professor of Management, USC; author of "On Becoming a Leader;" and coauthor of "Geeks and Geezers: How Era, Values, and Defining Moments Shape Leaders" Covey's work has influenced millions upon millions of people worldwide. In this book, he takes a huge conceptual leap and introduces us to ideas and practices that will have a profound impact on all our lives. "The 8th Habit" is a marvelous read, a triumph of the spirit, and, in my view, Covey's most important work. Ken Blanchard coauthor of "The One Minute Manager" and "Customer Mania!" Steve Covey does it again with cutting-edge thinking. "The 8th Habit" is about finding out why you're here and helping others to do the same. Is there a nobler cause? Don't miss this book!" Kevin Rollins President and CEO, Dell, Inc. Getting results in large companies is a very rare skill and this book captures how to do it. The guidance provided here will prove invaluable for leaders who are trying to drive tighter execution in their organizations. Horst Schulze Former President and COO of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company For years I have been using the 7 Habits as guiding principles in leading my business. I had to read "The 8th Habit." Having done so, I am completely wowed, captured, and empowered. "The 8th Habit" is a true masterpiece, a must-read. These principles of personal and organizational leadership, when lived, unleash human genius and inspire deep commitment and magnificent levels of service and satisfaction. This book will be my gift to all my associates as required reading for all of my future endeavors. Steve Forbes President and CEO of Forbes and Editor In Chief of "Forbes" Magazine Stephen Covey has long been a sure-footed guide to those desiring to better themselves. "The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness" shows how to climb to the summit of fulfillment and achievement. Tom Peters author of "Re-Imagine!: Business Excellence in a Disruptive Age" I hope Stephen writes a dozen more books. But should he not do so, "The 8th Habit" will clearly stand as the crowning achievement of a lifetime of service. May millions upon millions the world over read, share, and be moved to firmly grasp the reins of their lives as a result!
