'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People' is as relevant and timely today as it was when it was first published 25 years ago. Whether you are in a public or private clinic, whether it is a large multi-practitioner office or your own small independent practice, the principles discussed in 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People' provide enduring and universal truths for effective, values-based leadership. 'The 7 Habits' is a must read for anyone who seeks to understand how to inspire and motivate others. It remains one of the most important books of our time.

(Adapted from comments by Kevin Turner, COO of Microsoft)

'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People', Covey's best-known book, has sold more than 25 million copies worldwide since its first publication in 1989. The audio version became the first non-fiction audio-book in U.S. publishing history to sell more than one million copies.[5] Covey argues against what he calls 'The Personality Ethic', something he sees as prevalent in many modern self-help books. He promotes what he labels 'The Character Ethic': aligning one's values with so-called 'universal and timeless' principles. Covey adamantly refuses to conflate principles and values; he sees principles as external natural laws, while values remain internal and subjective. Covey proclaims that values govern people's behavior, but principles ultimately determine the consequences. Covey presents his teaching in a series of habits, manifesting as a progression from dependence to independence to interdependence. (Adapted from Wikipedia)

Bio: Stephen R. Covey, PhD

Few authors have managed to hold a multi-year run on the bestseller lists, earn a global following and create a multi-million dollar business empire, all through a genre of self-help and business literature - Stephen Covey was one amongst them. This New York Times bestselling author is hailed as the most successful "management guru" of all time. He gave the world the prototype for personal and professional effectiveness and has positively changed the lives of millions of people across the world. His clientele included many of the Fortune 500 companies, government organizations, universities, students, individuals and even former US President Bill Clinton. He is best known for his book, "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People", which stayed on the New York Times bestseller list for an unprecedented 250 weeks. Some of his other books are, "Principle-centered Leadership", "The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness" and "The Leader In Me". Other than penning life-changing books for people, he was a revered motivational speaker and professor at the Brigham Young University. He graduated with an MBA from Harvard Business School.

Stephen Covey's "The 7 Habits" have sold more than 25 million copies worldwide and also became the first audiobook to sell more than a million copies. More than two-thirds of Fortune 500 companies flocked to use a consulting company he founded. Covey said he was simply telling people what he thought they already knew: the efficacy of good behavior. All that people had to do was form habits out of their best instincts, he said, calling his 7 nuggets of knowledge natural laws, like gravity.
