Publisher's Summary

An insightful new work from the multimillion-copy best-selling author Sean Covey and the FranklinCovey organization, based on their work with hundreds of thousands of employees and large companies to unveil the essential disciplines proven to help businesses and individuals realize their most important goals.

A publishing phenomenon, Sean Covey and the FranklinCovey organization have become one of the most respected brands in the highly competitive world of thought leadership in business. In his latest work, Covey lays out an unprecedented plan for goal-realization that will revolutionize the way we approach our dreams.

The 4 Disciplines of Execution provides a simple, proven formula for achieving the goals that every individual or organization needs to reach. From Marriott to the U.S. Navy, Covey and his team have worked with more than 200,000 people in hundreds of organizations to improve performance, identifying and honing four secrets of perfect execution: Focus on the Wildly Important; Act on the Lead Measures; Keep a Compelling Scoreboard; and Create a Cadence of Accountability. By allowing teams to separate those urgent tasks that demand attention merely to keep a company alive - called the "whirlwind" - from new, "wildly important" goals that promise to break new ground, these disciplines empower leaders to accomplish what is by far the most difficult aspect of creating results: executing a strategy that requires a change in behavior. Simply put, this is a work that no business, however small or large, can afford to pass up.

What the Critics Say

"The 4 Disciplines of Execution offers more than theories for making strategic organizational change. The authors explain not only the 'what' but also 'how' effective execution is achieved. They share numerous examples of companies that have done just that, not once, but over and over again. This is a book that every leader should read!" (Clayton Christensen, Professor, Harvard Business School, and author of The Innovator’s Dilemma)

    "Gives a framework that can work!"
    What made the experience of listening to The 4 Disciplines of Execution the most enjoyable?

    I really liked this book, the authors provide a straight-forward framework to apply at home or at work, but clearly recognise and name the key blocker that fogs everything up. The whirlwind. Nicely written book, logical and clear.

    "Bad voice, some printed content not included."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No, I would recommend the printed/kindle version instead. Even is unabridged version, some of the content with value is lost on the audiobook.


    If you’ve listened to books by the authors before, how does this one compare?

    No I haven't. But I will not buy more books if he's speaking again.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I didn't like the voice, even is the autor of the book doesn't mean he can speak well. The pronunciation is poor and some of the word are not understandable. I strongly suggest the use of a professional narrator!

    "This really works!"

    If you follow the 4 disciplines you will get improved results. I have and I did. That said, there is a one-hour introduction book which gets the basics across better than this book does. My view is buy the shorter book and listen to it 5 or more times and you'll get all you need to start using the disciplines in practice.
