It is 18 years since Stephen Covey published his seminal work “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”, which was a hugely impactful book, selling millions of copies. In that book, Dr. Covey showed us how to become as effective as we possibly could be. In the 8th Habit, he opens up more potential for us all – by moving from “effectiveness to greatness”. The world today is different, with more challenge, ambiguity and complexity and while the 7 Habits form a strong basis upon which to start, it is this next step – the 8th Habit –that will take us to true fulfillment in what Covey describes as the age of the knowledge worker. The book’s synopsis promises that The 8th Habit is the answer to the yearning for greatness, the organization’s imperative for significance and superior results, and the human’s search for its “voice”. I believe there are some handy tips to be found in the book, but it is a much less intuitive read than his previous works. The book is divided into two sections. The first focuses on “finding your voice” and the second on “inspiring others to find theirs”.
