Dr. Stephen R. Covey, author of Predictable Results in Unpredictable Times and 7 Habits of Highly Effective People which was named the #1 Most Influential Business Book of the Twentieth Century

Recognized as one of Time magazine’s 25 most influential Americans, Stephen R. Covey has dedicated his life to demonstrating how every person can truly control their destiny with profound, yet straightforward guidance. As an internationally respected leadership authority, family expert, teacher, organizational consultant, and author, his advice has given insight to millions. Over 20 million copies of his books have been sold in 38 languages.

Managing Change in the Face of Crisis – Turbulent change, mergers, downsizing, low trust, and poor communication exact a heavy price on organizational performance.  Principle-centered leadership is the key to unleashing individual human potential. It is about instilling principles into the hearts and minds of people, then into the culture, where they begin to permeate and affect all relationships. Successful leadership, Dr. Covey teaches, inspires people to commit to a common vision, a common purpose and a common set of principles, thereby giving a clear sense of direction. This is the surest way to create strength and success while making change in today’s volatile, whitewater world.

Dr. Covey’s session will cover new ground for participants, and they leave ready to abandon existing unproductive habits for more effective thinking and practices.
