The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness by Stephen R. Covey

In the more than fifteen years since its publication, the classicThe 7 Habits of Highly Effective Peoplehas become an international phenomenon with over fifteen million copies sold. Tens of millions of people in business, government, schools, and families, and, most important, as individuals have dramatically improved their lives and organisations by applying the principles ofStephen R. Coveysclassic book.The world, though, is a vastly changed place. The challenges and complexity we all face in our relationships, families, professional lives, and communities are of an entirely new order of magnitude.Being effective as individuals and organisations is no longer merely an option survival in todays world requires it. But in order to thrive, innovate, excel, and lead in what Covey calls the New Knowledge Worker Age, we must build on and move beyond effectiveness. The call of this new era in human history is for greatness its for fulfillment, passionate execution, and significant contribution.Accessing the higher levels of human genius and motivation in todays new reality requires a sea change in thinking a new mind-set, a new skill-set, a new tool-set in short, a whole new habit. The crucial challenge of our world today is this to find our voice and inspire others to find theirs. It is what Covey calls the8th Habit.So many people feel frustrated, discouraged, unappreciated, and undervalued with little or no sense of voice or unique contribution.The 8th Habitis the answer to the souls yearning for greatness, the organisations imperative for significance and superior results, and humanitys search for its voice. Profound, compelling, and stunningly timely, this groundbreaking new book of next-level thinking gives a clear way to finally tap the limitless value-creation promise of the Knowledge Worker Age.The 8th Habitshows how to solve such common dilemmas asPeople want peace of mind and good relationships, but also want to keep their lifestyle and habits.Relationships are built on trust, but most people think more in terms of me my wants, my needs, my rights.Management wants more for less employees want more of whats in it for me for less time and effort.Businesses are run by the economic rules of the marketplace organisations are run by the cultural rules of the workplace.Society operates by its dominant social values, but must live with the consequences of the inviolable operation of natural laws and principles.Coveysnew book will transform the way we think about ourselves and our purpose in life, about our organisations, and about humankind. Just asThe 7 Habits of Highly Effective Peoplehelped us focus on effectiveness,The 8th Habitshows us the way to greatness.
