In a world where effectiveness is not an expectation, but a requirement, to truly excel one needs to become more than effective; they need to be great. That is the basis of Stephen Covey's bestseller, The 8th Habit. Covey addresses the problem that has arisen in business that, although the business world has progressed to a Worker Knowledge Age, management styles continue to be stuck in the rut of the Industrial Age. The 8th Habit encourages leaders to abandon the traditional need to control their employees as well as outdated carrot-and-stick motivational tools. They are encouraged, instead, to find their own voice; then inspire others to find theirs!
Whether you are a leader of a team of networkers or of the largest corporation in the USA, The 8th Habit will help you in your journey towards personal and organizational excellence.
Covey teaches valuable aspects to discovering your own voice and encouraging others to develop their own. Specifically:
- The Voice of Influence
- The Voice of Trustworthiness
- The Voice of Speed and Trust
- Blending Voices: Searching for The Third Alternative
- One Voice: Pathfinding Shared Vision, Values and Strategy
- The Voice and Discipline of Execution
- The Empowering Voice
After understanding The 8th Habit you will be able to unleash the power of this principle to help grow any organization you find yourself in, whether at the bottom, middle or top!
