First the material was poor concerning project execution giving four poorly explained and rambled principles. Basic material only based on 'stick' approach. much better material on project execution out there. Secondly the narrater was awful and not covey himself.

The narrator was aggressive, pompous, heavy us accent and virtually shouting at his audience which I found unprofessional in the extreme in terms of presentation. A waste of time and money better to stick with 7 habits. If I had been present at this recorded 'presentation' I would have walked out and demanded money bak.

The delivery time was fast, but the parcel was left outside my front door and they didn't even knock to deliver as I was in all day, this could of been stolen, and I put this down to lasiness on the deliverys part.

Weak on it's own 19 Mar 2006
By A. Majors - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I attended this training session in person, and purchased the CD's from Amazon to share with team mates who were not able to go. While I believe the CD's are a good reinforcement and reminder for me.... alone, they lack meaning in many areas and would be weak training at best. This is mostly a recording of a live training session, without the benefit of the workbooks or group interaction.

Engaging! 12 Jun 2012
By Shefali Dua - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Steven is the most influential writers of his time. This review is of the audio revision on the book. The premise resolves around how the best executioners use the four key disciplines to drive results.

Discipline 1: Narrow the focus; Forecast a finish line
- Big Idea is X to Y by when?
- Defining the finish line makes accountability and moral go up;

Discipline 2: Lead Measures
- Golden Rule of execution: Identify lead measures
- Lead measures are predictive and influence the end goal
- Lags - oh crap measures e.g weighing scale
- Leads - The real bet; Come up with the bet; e.g. controlling calorie intakes
- Too much focus on lags is counterproductive;

Discipline 3: Capture the bet
- Make it a game
- Have Compelling score board
- Scoreboard should tell if we are winning or losing
- People play better when they are keeping score
- Look at the Lag and lead to see the whole game

Discipline 4: Go and Measure it
- Focus on 3 things to do to change the score board!
- Whirlwind urgent items will not change the scoreboard.
- Make the commitment;
- Follow the sequence Goals ->live measures ->lead measures->scoreboards

Key Points
- Account for change in human behavior when trying to execute a strategy
- More the leader is in love with strategy, the more he tends to underestimate the execution
- Focus on the wildly important "the big idea".
- Insisting on people should focus and not acknowledging the whirlwind of events around them will lead to frustration.
- You have to focus on goals outside the whirlwind; Goals today when demystified will become whirlwind tomorrow;
- Art of execution- One thing at a time; narrow the focus outside the whirlwind
-Learn to say no to good things.

Quotes from the book
- "It isn't a miracle; We just decided we were going! And did it"; Goosebumps
- How do you eat an elephant - one bite at a time
- Enemy of the great is the good; Lot of good things; rarely, leaders get it.

Excellent 27 Sep 2006
By A reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One of the best business CDs I have listened to. The four disciplines are presented in a very accessible way, with many examples. I found myself making many mental notes of actions to take on a personal level and with my team.

Preview to a GREAT new book 9 May 2012
By William J. Siems - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM
Every few years another GREAT work come out of the FranklinCovey organization. This is an older (2007) preview of the recently released book "the 4 Disciplines of Execution" and a GREAT beginning prior to your reading the book. When I listened to it a number of years ago, I wished that there was a book of the same material and now there is. In 60 minutes Chris McChesney covers the main points of the 4 Disciplines; Focus on the Wildly Important (Goals), Act on the Lead (as opposed to the Lag) Measures, Keep a Compelling Scoreboard, and Create a Cadence of Accountability. These 4 Disciplines are the rules that are simple to read/say, but heard to do. If you do them, enacting them consistently, you can expect to become incredibly successful at whatever you do. This is well worth the listen, again, and again, and again, even after having read the book.

Typical Covey 19 Feb 2013
By C. Roy Argall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of Covey, you will like this. It is a bit too long to say what could be said much better and faster.
