This book asks the fundamental question, how do we as individuals (and organizations), not only survive but thrive amid tremendous change? More, why are our efforts to improve continuing to fail despite the millions of dollars we spend in time, capital, and human effort every year? How do we combat all of this by unleashing the full measure of our creativity, talent, and energy in the midst of this pressure? Is it realistic to believe that we can find balance in our personal life, family life, and professional life?
Author Stephen R. Covey shows that the answer to these concerns is Principle-Centered Leadership; a long-term, inside-out approach to developing people and organizations. Covey tells that the key to dealing with the challenges that we face today is the recognition of a principle-centered core within not only each of us, but within our organizations. Covey offers insights and guidelines that demonstrate how we can apply these principles both at work and at home which will lead not only to an increase in our productivity and the quality of our work, but also to a new appreciation of the importance of establishing more personal and professional relationships as we strive to enjoy a more balance, more rewarding and ultimately more effective life.

y seminars I often invite people to share their toughest problems or ask their hardest questions. Inevitably these deal with conflicts or dilemmas that can’t be resolved using conventional approaches. Here are just a couple of examples:

How do I balance personal and professional areas of life in the middle of constant crises and pressures?
How can I be genuinely happy for the successes and competencies of another?
How do we maintain control, yet give people the freedom and autonomy they need to be effective in their work?
How do we internalize the principles of total quality and continuous improvement at all levels and in all people when they are so cynical in the wake of all the past programs of the month?
Perhaps you have asked yourself these questions as you have grappled with real-life challenges in your personal life and in your organizations. As you read this book you will gain an understanding of the basic principles of effective leadership.

Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.

With understanding you will be empowered to answer these and other tough questions by yourself. Without understanding you will tend to use hit-and-miss, seat-of-the-pants approaches to living and problem-solving.

In recent years, since the publication of my book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, I have worked with many wonderful individuals who are seeking to improve the quality of their lives and the quality of their products, services, and organizations. But, sadly, I have seen that many use a
