Product Description

Review

Sam Walton Chairman, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. Covey's philosophy for creating more meaningful relationships and successes in the workplace is one we should be striving to implement throughout business and industry, in the home and elsewhere, if we expect to be rewarded with happiness and a fulfilling future.

Product Description

This book asks the fundamental question, how do we as individuals (and organizations), not only survive but thrive amid tremendous change? More, why are our efforts to improve continuing to fail despite the millions of dollars we spend in time, capital, and human effort every year? How do we combat all of this by unleashing the full measure of our creativity, talent, and energy in the midst of this pressure? Is it realistic to believe that we can find balance in our personal life, family life, and professional life?

Author Stephen R. Covey shows that the answer to these concerns is Principle-Centered Leadership; a long-term, inside-out approach to developing people and organizations. Covey tells that the key to dealing with the challenges that we face today is the recognition of a principle-centered core within not only each of us, but within our organizations. Covey offers insights and guidelines that demonstrate how we can apply these principles both at work and at home which will lead not only to an increase in our productivity and the quality of our work, but also to a new appreciation of the importance of establishing more personal and professional relationships as we strive to enjoy a more balance, more rewarding and ultimately more effective life.

Format:Paperback
This book does not contain the latest methods, the newest techniques or any quick-fix solve your problems in a day advice. What it does contain are truths that have stood the test of time and still ring a bell in the innermost places. He focuses on natural laws and principles that, faithfully sowed, will reap the desired results if the said desired results are better relationships, mutual trust, lasting changes. If you want rapid results, superficial temporary changes, this book is not for you. If you think the solution lies in finding out what's wrong with the system or your opponent, this book is not for you. If you are willing to admit that the problem might be you and that solutions may take time to work out, this book will prove to be a god-send. I plan to re-visit this book often in the process of trying to put these principles into practice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly excellent 9 Oct 2003
Format:Paperback
I have concluded that the root cause of all the ills of the world is that humans do not live their lives according to the Golden Rule of doing unto others as you would have others do unto you. The Golden Rule is the common thread of all religions and can therefore be considered the unifying principle for every human on earth. It is probably the one concept that everyone can buy into but also one goal that everyone would admit they could and should do better. For myself I know that if I truly lived the Golden Rule I would feel much more pain at the unacceptable gap between the rich and the poor because as one of the rich I would see myself or my loved ones as one of the starving and would want to do something about it. The fact that I don't do anything about it - or not enough - means that I am just a wimp. Just a lot of hot air. I say one thing but do another. My failure, multiplied six billion times is what has turned this paradise we inherited into the crisis-ridden planet we live on today. It was a strange and wonderful discovery, therefore, that this book has been written to help me - and you should you be so inclined - to come closer to living the Golden Rule through what the author refers to as Principle-Centered Leadership.
A second conclusion is that we need more of the Mother Teresa style of leadership. She spoke very little, rolled up her sleeves and just waded into the slums of the poorest of the poor, while my leadership style has been to keep at a safe distance and say "Hey, someone should do something about this." The big difference between Mother Teresa and me is that she lived the Golden Rule while I just mouth it. Principle-Centered Leadership is the book I was seeking to help me change from a talker to a doer.

I am only one quarter of the way through this book but so far, it is without a doubt the best book of it's kind I have ever read. This guy talks sense, something that rings true at the deepest level. Not techniques or fads or methods or solve your problems in a day but real solutions for people willing to face the challenge to become better people in order to influence those around them. I look forward to not only finishing the book but re-reading it often as I endeavour to put it into practice.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not up to Coveys usual standard 12 July 2013
Format:Audio CD
I am an avid follower of Coveys work. If you already have his other popular works don't bother with this audio. If not 7 habits and First things first are excellent.
