Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Steven Covey

This classic work provides a proven and reliable framework for copying the habits of top performers. The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People is still highly effective. 

The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People Review

A student looking through my book recommendations asked about audio titles and I realised that while I have an extensive library, I had not written reviews for them. So this recommendation for The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People will be one of many.

For those who haven't listened to the late Stephen Covey reading his Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, put it on your list, I say.

This is a classic, landmark piece of work originally recorded in the nineteen eighties. The seven habits are just as valid today as they ever were. They are habits to live by.

Sales people who take them to heart are likely to enjoy a very satisfying career as well as make a worthwhile contribution to the success of others.

  1. Be proactive
  2. Begin with the end in mind
  3. Put first things first
  4. Think Win Win
  5. Seek first to understand
  6. Synergise
  7. Sharpen the saw

So now you know them yet like icebergs, these pinnacle headings leave much unsaid and who better to explain than Stephen Covey himself.

I find listening to the authors read their own work is very rewarding. Who else would read with the same passion.
