By Stephen R. Covey
‘Practical, inspiring and accessible.’’
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen R. Covey is a self-help book that offers practical advice for achieving personal and professional success. The author identifies seven habits that he believes are characteristic of highly effective people, including being proactive, beginning with the end in mind, putting first things first, thinking win-win, seeking first to understand then to be understood, synergizing, and sharpening the saw. Covey argues that these habits are rooted in timeless principles that can help individuals become more effective in both their personal and professional lives. He provides concrete examples and exercises to help readers apply the habits in their own lives and develop greater self-awareness, personal responsibility, and interpersonal skills.
