Stephen R. Covey 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Simon & Schuster. 1999
Synopsis
According to the author, to live with security and wisdom, and be able to take advantage of the opportunities created by change, we need fairness, integrity, honesty and human dignity. In this guide, Covey defines the "habits" as "the intersection of knowledge, skill and desire" and states that the seven habits of the title are not mutually exclusive but, when developed together, help to form a well-rounded, sensitive, confident and effective human being. He aims to help the reader overcome the barriers that prevent many of us from taking a long hard look at ourselves, and introduces new rules allowing us to move first from dependence to independence and then towards the ultimate goal of interdependence.
