Publisher's Summary

This audio is a synthesis of Stephen R. Covey's two-day interactive and intensive workshop on leadership. In this audio program Dr. Covey teaches managers and leaders how to define their contributions, develop greater influence, leverage hidden resources, give constructive feedback, and unleash the full potential of their team against critical priorities.

No organization has ever become great without exceptional leadership, without leaders who can connect the efforts of their teams to the critical objectives of the organization, who can tap the full potential of each individual on their team, who can align systems and clarify purposes, and who can inspire trust. Do your leaders put your organization on the road to greatness?

Dr. Covey teaches leaders the proven principles of the 7 Habits as applied to their roles as leaders. It takes a leadership mind-set, skill-set, tool-set, 7-Habits approach to developing leaders who can unleash the talent and capability of their team against the organization's highest priorities.

The 7 Habits for Managers includes Dr. Covey on the 7 Habits as applied to managers and leaders and a powerful Q&A with Dr. Covey answering some of managers' toughest questions.

Covey Got Nothing New To Say

Same stories, same examples, sample analogies, same tone of voice, same old 7 Habits theories.

The Guru of "Over-Repetition"!

While the world keeps on changing, Covey assumes what he taught are all golden principles, so he failed to change, update his worldviews (paradigms, using his cliche word!), and add new meat to his old dishes. Did he really sharpen his old saw and avoid living on his old golden eggs inside his intellectual comfort zone?

His "new" audiobooks are always recycling his own thoughts. This is very unfair to his readers. We need new ideas, new insights, new information, new examples from him.

He is more like a lazy professor who uses the same old notes to teach every class, every term, while charging his old notes with new school fees each time!

Buyers be aware of his so called "new" products!!

Exactly what I needed as a new manager

Just like his other book 7 habits of highly effective people, it's clear and to the point. I appreciate Stephen R Covey's guidance in the subject as I embark on this new turn in my career.

Listen to it over and over

You have to read this book more than once because it has so much to offer you. From 1st to 5th level leadership. Time is the one thing that's limited to what is available. It makes sense spending your time on that which generate results. This is time well spent. Highly recommended!

Good enough for a short synopsis

Any additional comments?

It was maybe not so enlightening as I had hoped, but that might be due to my own background and maybe to the editing of the abriged version. It's short enough to listen to twice if you miss out on one of the points ;-)

Wisdom at its best

I’ve been reading Mr. Covey for more than 20 years now. He provides solutions that are infallible because they are based on universal laws that work for everyone. Must read for any manager, administrator, entrepreneur.
