An inspirational and practical guide to leadership from the New York Times–bestselling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Covey, named one of Time magazine’s 25 Most Influential Americans, is a renowned authority on leadership, whose insightful advice has helped millions. In his follow-up to The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, he poses these fundamental questions: How do we as individuals and organizations survive and thrive amid tremendous change? Why are efforts to improve falling so short in real results? How do we unleash the creativity, talent, and energy within ourselves and others? Is it realistic to believe that balance among personal and professional life is possible? The key to dealing with the challenges that we face is to identify a principle-centered core within ourselves and our institutions. In Principle-Centered Leadership, Covey outlines a long-term, inside-out approach to developing people and organizations. Offering insights and guidelines on how to apply these principles both at work and at home, Covey posits that these steps will lead not only to an increase in productivity and quality of work, but also to a new appreciation of personal and professional relationships as we strive to enjoy a more balanced, rewarding, and ultimately more effective life. “There seems to be no limit to the number of writers offering answers to the great perplexities of life. Covey, however, is the North Star in this field . . . without hesitation, strongly recommended.” —Library Journal

Questioning the Unquestionable to Think the Unthinkable and See the Invisible One thing that used to make me uncomfortable and bother me when I was growing up was that when I looked around almost everybody was like everybody else, doing what everybody was doing, making the same jokes, thinking thoughts that everybody was thinking, heading in the same direction; for example, I would see five small kiosks selling the same things on the same street. When someone started a business, a dozen others would start doing the same thing; my view was that everything looked to be at standstill, and I used to question this deep down in my heart and that still bothers me till today because nobody is supposed to be like nobody: I used to go to boarding school, stay, come back, and still find nothing has changed nothing different, no progress. In fact, it looked like things were moving backward; this used to depress me. Nothing changes in our life until we change. This does not mean that change cannot happen unless we do; there is a certain type of external change that happens even if we do not; for example, your body changes with or without your permission. Environment change is another example; however, unless we change things can never change in our lives. You see, if we keep on thinking the same thoughts doing the same things like the past generations did, we will not move forward but be at a standstill, and the problems with history repeating itself is that it teaches us what we have already seen and takes us to where we have already been and to see what we have seen.
