EIGHTH HABIT STEPHEN COVEY PDF

In that book, Dr. Covey showed us how to become as effective as we possibly could be. The world today is different, with more challenge, ambiguity and complexity and while the 7 Habits form a strong basis upon which to start, it is this next step — the 8th Habit —that will take us to true fulfillment in what Covey describes as the age of the knowledge worker. I believe there are some handy tips to be found in the book, but it is a much less intuitive read than his previous works. The book is divided into two sections. Here is a synopsis of both parts: Finding your voice.

Do you want to set yourself up for a successful career in a post-Industrial Age world? If you want to save this summary for later, download the free PDF and read it whenever you want. In order to help others find their voice, you first have to find your own, obviously.

So whether that next step is a step up or down is entirely up to you. Recognizing these powers you have and playing with how you use them is the first step towards finding and capitalizing on your unique powers at work. Communicating with others comes easiest when your relationship is built on trust. Think about this in the concept of business, and you can easily see why trust is one of the most important things for CEOs to work on.

Covey says that trust is built in three ways: Stick to your word. If you promise something, follow through. Whatever comes out of your mouth, back it the f up, every time. Be nice. So simple, yet so powerful. Just be friendly. Say sorry when you have to. We all screw up. How do you do that? One of the strongest ways to empower others is to just hand the power to them — literally! Having the freedom to make these important decisions about their work will make them feel a lot more motivated and of course help them trust in your future decisions.

By the way, this applies to friendships too! Ask your friends for help, trust them to do their part and see how your relationship grows. The 8th Habit Review Mostly directed towards leaders and businesses, I think The 8th Habit is also an important book on a personal level.

A modern classic!

The 8th Habit by Stephen R. Covey – a review

Far from being an 8th habit, this book is about mindset and amazing leadership. Confession: I have had the 7 Habits book on my bookshelf since — I know, Marie Kondo would have a fit. But I finally did read the 7 Habits a few months ago, which then made it possible for me to read The 8th Habit this past week. And what I realized is that The 8th Habit — From Effectiveness to Greatness is all about finding your voice and inspiring others to find theirs. It is packed with so much information and inspiration that you should not wait to read the first book before you read the second. I call it mindset.

Continual improvement[ edit ] The final habit is that of continuous improvement in both the personal and interpersonal spheres of influence. It primarily emphasizes exercise for physical renewal, good prayer meditation, yoga , etc. It also mentions service to society for spiritual renewal.
