Seven Habits of Highly Effective People

Seven Habits of Highly Effective People

Author: Stephen R. Covey

Year Published: 1989

Description: In this bestselling book, author Stephen Covey challenges readers to increase their personal and professional effectiveness through seven habits categorized by three broad themes: independence (be proactive; begin with the end in mind; put first things first), interdependence (think win-win; seek first to understand, then to be understood; synergize) and continuous improvement (sharpen the saw). He also promotes adoption of what he coins an "abundance mentality," one that regards success not as an all or none proposition but rather something that can be shared.
