It’s a little difficult to say someting original about this book. The 7 habits of highly effective people by Stephen Covey has been around for a long time, and has infleunced many people’s thinking on leadership and personal and professional development.
And deservedly so. The book offers insights that make sense and can serve as the foundation for personal growth. What I found most encouraging is that I see signs that much of the thinking of the book is now commonly found in a business setting. It seems that the ideas have spread and have become accepted, especially the very foundation, namely that professional success can (or maybe even must) come from personal development. To become a better worker, become a better person is the message that’s been spread by many books, and most effectively by “7 habits”.
