In The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, author Stephen R. Covey presents a holistic, integrated, principle-centered approach for solving personal and professional problems. Before you can adopt the seven habits, you'll need to accomplish what Covey calls a "paradigm shift"- a change in perception and interpretation of how the world works. Covey takes you through this change, which affects how you view productivity, time management, prioritization, developing your "proactive muscles", and much more. This isn't a quick-tips-start-tomorrow kind of book. The concepts are sometimes quite intricate, so we invite you to study the Seven Habits together at the workshops where everyone can contribute.
