"I fee ripped off..."
How do we as individuals and organizations survive amid tremendous change?

"The habits in action"
Most people typically listen with the intent to reply. Habit 5 explores the essential communication skill of listening to truly understand, which helps us to avoid reading our own autobiographies into other people's lives. It opens us up to one another's perspectives, ideas, and emotions. Then real communication can happen, new and better ideas can be conceived, and everyone involved can learn from one another.
Being effective as individuals and organizations is no longer merely an option, survival in today's world requires it. But in order to thrive, innovate, excel, and lead in what Covey calls the new Knowledge Worker Age, we must build on and move beyond effectiveness. The call of this new era in human history is for greatness; it's for fulfillment, passionate execution, and significant contribution.
After illustrating the global relevance of trust with his book The Speed of Trust by selling more than one million copies in 22 languages, Stephen M. R. Covey again illuminates the hidden power of trust to change lives and impact organizations in Smart Trust.
