Synopses & Reviews
Stephen Covey's The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People was a groundbreaking bestseller, and one of the most successful leadership books of all time, with more than 10 million copies in print. Now Stephen's son, Sean, has adapted the same seven habits into a life-changing book for young people.
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teenagers speaks directly to teens, using language and real-life scenarios of particular interest to teens. By engaging this audience on their level and without being condescending, Sean Covey addresses the issues that concern young people: relationships, peers, parents, school choices, life choices, and monumental matters about the future — giving them hope, direction and specific skills to craft extraordinary lives.
At a time when everything from planning what to wear to a party to dealing with an alcoholic friend can seem overwhelming frightening, and complex, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teenagers provides a simple step-by-step, principle-centered plan to help teens solve problems and not just cope, but to create their own unique destinies.
This workbook reinforces the habits and principles taught in the book through simple-to-understand and simple-to-do exercises. Helps teens identify where they spend their time and determine how to use their time more wisely. Designed as a stand-alone piece to use in small groups, in a classroom or for individual use.
In the bestselling tradition of "Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul," this invaluable guide speaks loudly and convincingly to teens and provides them with universal principles sure to enhance their effectiveness and guide their future decisions.
Being a teenager is both wonderful and challenging. In The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, author Sean Covey applies the timeless principles of the 7 Habits to teens and the tough issues and life-changing decisions they face. In an entertaining style, Covey provides a step-by-step guide to help teens improve self-image, build friendships, resist peer pressure, achieve their goals, get along with their parents, and much more. In addition, this book is stuffed with cartoons, clever ideas, great quotes, and incredible stories about real teens from all over the world. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens will engage teenagers unlike any other book.
An indispensable book for teens, as well as parents, grandparents, and any adult who influences young people, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens is destined to become the last word on surviving and thriving as a teen and beyond.
