A guidebook to personal fulfilment and professional success through "principle-centered leadership" based on timeless principles - showing how goals of excellence and total quality express an innate human need for progress in personal and organizational life. Ineffective people try to manage their time around priorities, says Stephen R. Covey, whereas effective people lead their lives and manage their relationships according to principles - natural laws and governing values that are universally valid. Leadership is the ability to apply these principles to problems, resulting in quality, productivity, profitability and win-win relationships. By the author of "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People".

From the Publisher:

The Eternal Drive for Excellence No matter what level of success we have achieved, none of us can be content to stay where we are. Within all of us lies an innate desire for progress in every aspect of our lives. In order to harness and utilize this internal drive in ourselves and those around us, we must learn to center our lives according to a set of certain basic principles Stephen R. Covey, author of the runaway bestseller The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People, tells us how to apply these principles to the problems we face every day---and how to meet the goals of all strong business leaders: quality, productivity, profitability, and win-win relationships. According to Covey, ineffective people try to manage their time around priorities, often losing sight of the fundamental character and skill development necessary for effective leadership. Here he draws on 25 years of consulting and teaching to provide new methods and practices that will improve our managerial, interpersonal and organizational lives. Using the same insightful and sensitive style that made The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People a #1 national audio bestseller, Principle-Centered Leadership provides the keys to life-long learning---each one unlocking the doors to personal fulfillment and professional success.
