The world has profoundly changed since The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People was published in 1989. The challenges and complexity we face in our personal lives and relationships, in our families, in our professional lives, and in our organizations are of a different order and magnitude. Surviving, thriving, innovating, excelling and leading in this new reality requires a new mind-set, new skills and new tools — it requires a new habit. The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness adds an additional dimension to the 7 Habits that takes us beyond effectiveness and puts us on the pathway leading to greatness.

What people call for and need in this new era is fulfillment. They desire passionate optimization, significant contribution and greatness. We must tap into the voice of the human spirit — full of hope and intelligence — and encompass the soul of organizations so they can survive, thrive and profoundly impact the future of the world. Tapping into these higher reaches of human genius and motivation — what Dr. Covey calls voice — requires the 8th Habit. The purpose of The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness is to give you a road map that will lead you from pain and frustration to true fulfillment, relevance, significance and contribution in today’s new landscape — not only in your work and organization, but also in your whole life.
