No matter what level of success we have achieved, none of us can be content to stay where we are. In order to harness this drive, this innate desire for progress in all areas, we must learn to center our lives according to a set of certain basic principles. Stephen R. Covey, author of the runaway bestseller The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, tells us how to apply these principles to the problems we face every day. Drawing on his 25 years of teaching and consulting experience, Dr. Covey shows us how to avoid the pitfalls of ineffective people, and at the same time how to meet the goals of all strong business leaders: quality, productivity, profitability and establishing win-win relationships. Using the same insightful and sensitive style that made The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People a #1 national audio bestseller, Principle-Centered Leadership provides the keys to life-long learning -- each one unlocking the doors to personal fulfillment and professional success.
