Principle Centered Leadership
Author: Stephen R. Covey
This classic book asks the fundamental question, how do we as individuals (and organizations), not only
survive but thrive amid tremendous change? Why are our efforts to improve continuing to fail despite the
millions of dollars we spend in time, capital, and human effort every year? How do we combat all of this by
unleashing the full measure of our creativity, talent, and energy in the midst of this pressure? Is it
realistic to believe that we can find balance in our personal life, family life, and professional
Author Stephen R. Covey shows that the answer to these concerns is Principle-Centered Leadership; a long-term, inside-out approach to developing people and organizations. Covey says that the key to dealing with the challenges that we face today is the recognition of a principle-centered core within not only each of us, but within our organizations. Covey offers insights and guidelines that demonstrate how we can apply these principles both at work and at home which will lead not only to an increase in our productivity and the quality of our work, but also to a new appreciation of the importance of establishing more personal and professional relationships as we strive to enjoy a more balance, more rewarding and ultimately more effective life.
