The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness

The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The world has changed dramatically since the classic, internationally bestselling The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People was published, influencing tens of millions. The challenges and complexity we all face in our relationships, families, professional lives and communities are of an entirely new order of magnitude. In order to thrive, innovate, excel and lead in what Covey calls the new Knowledge Worker Age, we must build on and move beyond effectiveness...to greatness.

Accessing the higher levels of human genius and motivation in today's new reality requires a sea change of new thinking — a new mind-set, a new skill-set, a new tool-set — in short, a whole new habit.

Review:

"The 8th Habit will clearly stand as the crowning achievement of Covey's lifetime of service." Tom Peters, author of Re-imagine!: Business Excellence in a Disruptive Age

Review:

"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." Kevin Rollins, President and CEO, Dell, Inc.

Synopsis:

The author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People urges readers to go beyond effectiveness into a whole other dimension of human experience — the potential for greatness.
