More About Stephen R. Covey
Over his lifetime, Stephen inspired millions with the power of universal principles. As he traveled the globe many times over, his message was a simple one: for true success and meaning in life, we must be principle-centered in all areas of life. A teacher at heart, he often taught: "there are three constants in life: change, choice and principles."
From the oval office, the board room, community halls and to the school house and family room, Stephen taught the mindset, skillset and toolset found in the 7 habits of Highly effective people, his seminal work. His legacy is woven in the 7 habits, and, just as these habits are universal and timeless, so is Stephen r. Covey, who is admired around the world for his simple, yet powerful, universal, timeless teachings.
Recognized as one of Time magazine’s 25 most influential Americans, Stephen R. Covey was one of the world’s foremost leadership authorities, organizational experts, and thought leaders.

Millions of people and thousands of clients throughout the world have personally experienced Covey's approach and commitment to teaching universal principles.

Over the years, clients from around the world—including from India, Japan, Korea, Africa, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, and beyond—have commented to Stephen Covey that The 7 Habits intimately relate to their culture, country, organization, and family.

These universal, timeless principles have stood the test of time with millions of people around the world and will continue to do so in the future.

Reviews - What do customers think about Stephen R. Covey on Leadership: Great Leaders, Great Team, Great Results?
Content Lacks Coherent Focus--Too Many Leadership Sub-thoughts Mar 20, 2008
Covey's voice is lacking the influence power that he used to carry. Nothing new from this audio. Always same quotes. Cut and paste from the 8Th Habits and the 4 Disciplines of Execution. Prefer his Principle-centered Leadership much much better. More insights and wisdom than this so called new audio program. Franklin Covey has too many spin-off products, but really lacks meat and new practical insights!! They really need to sharpen their own saw.
Great Leaders, Great Team Mar 2, 2008
The first of the three CDs is what has the meat of the topic. Too long and too many personal testimonies. The CDs should provide concepts, tools and ideas.
Living Leadership Feb 17, 2008
Leadership: Great Leaders, Great Team, Great Results. This is an audio only presentation that is a sample introduction to a 20 hour three or five day training session that Franklin Covey does throughout the country. This may be meant as a promotional piece for the trainings, but is a very interesting and usable stand alone collection of Leadership development lessons.
The theme of this Audio presentation is to introduce a whole person leadership approach to leading. The presentation is a call to great leadership, leadership that inspires people in organization to become great organization with winning streaks. It is meant to take a tool set approach to have a participant develop a vision for great leadership and a paradigm for leadership in a knowledge centered world with a framework of systems and processes by explaining the skills and tools to enable great leadership. This is a modern view of leadership that gives you examples of how it works and dispels the old school methods of command, control, power of using only a couple of strong individuals to lead.
This is very informative and packed with a lot of leadership principles and examples. The part I took to heart is the journey to execution. The journey of execution starts with developing meaningful goals or WIGS as it calls them, wildly important goals. The second step in this execution is to have lead measures for actions. It gives examples of keeping a compelling scoreboard. Once you have those in place it all creates a cadence of accountability in a way that is engaging of the team. All of this execution is done with a synergy of engaging the team. The 80/20 rule is explained, which is something that I have applied in other disciplines (like software development), 20 percent of the effort will produce 80 percent of the results. It challenges to ask, what 20 percent of things or tasks should your team be focusing on to achieve your WIGS.
If you are not a normal listener to audio books or presentations, do not worry, this is one you can listen to. This presentation has more that seven presenters. It is filled with many dramas, examples and readers. This is a first rate production with drama, background music, sports examples, real life stories, not just a reading.
Definitely an encouraging and personally challenging collection of examples and stories of how big and little things (being a trim tab in your organization is one example) can make an impact.
I strongly recommend this for anyone in business or in an organization that has the desire to make a difference in the organization that they serve (oops work) in. I listened to it twice, because I liked it, but also to get as much out of it and have the ability to apply it, really apply and implement it.
