Leadership For the Long Haul

Many books on leadership skim the surface or seek to inspire with great quotes. Others give practical tips on good management technique. A few go deep and start a whole new discussion on the subject of leadership. This is what “7 Habits of Highly of Highly Effective People” did when it was released in 1989, and continues to do today.

According to author Stephen Covey, Leadership begins with personal effectiveness. When we achieve victory in our private life, then we are in position to lead in the public arena. But it all begins with a paradigm shift: a complete change in the way we see things. The 7 Habits, timeless principles for personal change and effective leadership, are powerful and thought provoking. This is a GREAT book. It was a game changer for me in my leadership many years ago and its message is just as relevant today as it was then.
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars

This is must reading for anyone who wants to succeed in life and leadership! Below is a nicely produced video summation of the principles laid out in the book:
