Excellent book on leadership by Covey - he expounds on the 8th habit: find your voice and help others to find theirs. Covey makes the case that this is the next and greatest step in the evolution of the workplace-from agriculture to the industrial revolution to the age of information to the age of wisdom. Leadership then becomes something that anyone at any level of any organization can develop. His theme is summed up in the phrase "To live, to love, to learn, and to leave a legacy". That encompasses the 4 needs of all people - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. By addressing these needs, individuals, families, or organizations can truly grow and flourish.

This book has a DVD in the back with film clips that illustrate points in the book.

Quotes to remember:

"The essence of being human is being able to direct your own life."

"Many have come to believe that the only things we need for success are talent, energy, and personality. But history has taught us that over the long haul, who we are is more important than who we appear to be."

"Leaders conquer the context - the volatile, turbulent, ambiguous surroundings that sometimes seem to conspire against us and will surely suffocate us if we let them - while managers surrender to it. The manager administers; the leader innovates. The manager is a copy; the leader is an original. The manager maintains; the leader develops. The manager focuses on systems and structure; the leader focuses on people. The manager relies on control; the leader inspires trust. The manager has a short-range view; the leader has a long-range perspective. The manager asks how and when; the leader asks what and why. The manager has his eye on the bottom line; the leader has his eye on the horizon. The manager imitates; the leader originates. The manager accepts the status quo; the leader challenges it." -from "The Differences Between Management and Leadership" by C. Carter-Scott
