This audio is a synthesis of Stephen R. Covey's two-day interactive and intensive workshop on leadership. In this audio program Dr. Covey teaches managers and leaders how to define their contributions, develop greater influence, leverage hidden resources, give constructive feedback, and unleash the full potential of their team against critical priorities.
No organization has ever become great without exceptional leadership, without leaders who can connect the efforts of their teams to the critical objectives of the organization, who can tap the full potential of each individual on their team, who can align systems and clarify purposes, and who can inspire trust. Do your leaders put your organization on the road to greatness?
Dr. Covey teaches leaders the proven principles of the 7 Habits as applied to their roles as leaders. It takes a leadership mind-set, skill-set, tool-set, 7-Habits approach to developing leaders who can unleash the talent and capability of their team against the organization's highest priorities.
The 7 Habits for Managers includes Dr. Covey on the 7 Habits as applied to managers and leaders and a powerful Q&A with Dr. Covey answering some of managers' toughest questions.

Same stories, same examples, sample analogies, same tone of voice, same old 7 Habits theories.
The Guru of "Over-Repetition"!
While the world keeps on changing, Covey assumes what he taught are all golden principles, so he failed to change, update his worldviews (paradigms, using his cliche word!), and add new meat to his old dishes. Did he really sharpen his old saw and avoid living on his old golden eggs inside his intellectual comfort zone?
His "new" audiobooks are always recycling his own thoughts. This is very unfair to his readers. We need new ideas, new insights, new information, new examples from him.
He is more like a lazy professor who uses the same old notes to teach every class, every term, while charging his old notes with new school fees each time!
Buyers be aware of his so called "new" products!!
Just like his other book 7 habits of highly effective people, it's clear and to the point. I appreciate Stephen R Covey's guidance in the subject as I embark on this new turn in my career.
I'm just beginning as a manager and this gave me an entire new respect for the people who choose to work with me. And it gave me a new respect for the manager I can become.
You have to read this book more than once because it has so much to offer you. From 1st to 5th level leadership. Time is the one thing that's limited to what is available. It makes sense spending your time on that which generate results. This is time well spent. Highly recommended!
yes!! i dont have time to read, so listening to these audio books while spending 2 hours on the road = priceless!!!
To sort tasks in 4 boxes and focus on more important things!
The book is a great all rounder
yes, pased well and great listening material
Audible.com is the best site i've discovered - so much inspiration and gives one an overall inspiration to grab the day with both hands/all opportunities
Required for management.
Seven summaries with practical summary input.
Down to earth, friendly with some added on-the-spot comments from his insights.
It was maybe not so enlightening as I had hoped, but that might be due to my own background and maybe to the editing of the abriged version. It's short enough to listen to twice if you miss out on one of the points ;-)
