Overview

The Eternal Drive for Excellence

No matter what level of success we have achieved, none of us can be content to stay where we are. Within all of us lies an innate desire for progress in every aspect of our lives. In order to harness and utilize this internal drive in ourselves and those around us, we must learn to center our lives according to a set of certain basic principles

Stephen R. Covey, author of the runaway bestseller The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People, tells us how to apply these principles to the problems we face every day

and how to meet the goals of all strong business leaders: quality, productivity, profitability, and win-win relationships. According to Covey, ineffective people try to manage their time around priorities, often losing sight of the fundamental character and skill development necessary for effective leadership. Here he draws on 25 years of consulting and teaching to provide new methods and practices that will improve our managerial, interpersonal and organizational lives.

Using the same insightful and sensitive style that made The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People a #1 national audio bestseller, Principle-Centered Leadership provides the keys to life-long learning

each one unlocking the doors to personal fulfillment and professional success.
