About the Author Stephen R Covey:

Stephen R. Covey (born October 24 1932 in Salt Lake City, Utah) is the writer of the bestselling book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Folks, in addition to additional books (First Things First, Principle -Centered Leadership). He is the founder of the Covey Leadership Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, and is the "Covey" of the Franklin-Covey Corporation, which makes planners and organizers and does administration consulting. He has his BS in Company Administration from University of Utah in Salt Lake City, his MBA in Company Administration from Harvard University, and his DRE in Church History and Doctorate from Brigham Young University.

The Seven Habits, Covey's many well-known book, was very lucrative and has sold over 15 million duplicates since initial publication in 1989. In this book, Covey argues against what he calls "The Personality Ethic", anything he sees as common in various contemporary self-help books. He rather promotes what he labels "The Character Ethic," that is based mostly upon one's principles and code of conduct, specifically:

* Habit 1: Be Proactive: Principles of Personal Vision
* Habit 2: Start with all the End in Mind: Principles of Personal Leadership
* Habit 3: Put First Things First: Principles of Personal Management
* Habit 4: Think Win/Win: Principles of Interpersonal Leadership
* Habit 5: Seek First to Know, Next to be Understood
* Habit 6: Synergize Principles of Creative Communication
* Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw: Principles of Balanced Self-Renewal

Follow-up titles to The Seven Habits are meant to both add to the authentic and shape a cohesive strategy on individual, principle-based leadership. These are generally accessible as sound books too. Covey has moreover created a amount of understanding books for kids.

Covey's aim is to aid others gain proficiency in their lives, particularly in the context of company and administration and create income doing it. However, his books additionally highlight family and individual leadership. These are generally marketed to a wide-ranging audience, from high-powered professionals to stay-at-home mums. Similar authors would include Peter Drucker or David Allen, in addition to additional more business-centered writers. Covey's functions additionally display a central philosophical ideal, which some would interpret because right of center or conservative, although he was for a time a consultant to President Bill Clinton.

Critics of Covey's techniques contend that the writer has a "rapid fix" that dissipates when calculated from the fact of daily lifetime. When confronted with cases that contain ingredients that are outside the realm of their individual influence, those imbued with Covey's summary accountability could become frustrated at the "habits'" failure to put conditions within their locus of control. In brief, Covey is occasionally mentioned to preach impractical, idealistic techniques.audiobook

Advocates of Covey's techniques point out that the writer consistently opposes "quick-fix" solutions to existence or company difficulties and insists that changes in paradigm or mindset to align with all-natural principles are the true source of solutions. Covey points out, for illustration, that the paradigm that produces short-term results in company inevitably leads to an inability to provide results for the lengthy expression. He calls this "killing the golden goose." The best mindset for the company individual is to balance short- and long-term effective capacities.
