      قرأت هذا الكتاب منذ خمس سنوات بمناسبة درس الانجليزية في الجامعة، حيث طلبت منا الأستاذة قراءة كتابين بالانجليزية في أي مجال نختاره ثم تقديم عرض موثق عن الموضوع. في تلك الفترة كنت مولعة بالتنمية البشرية، و كان كتاب "العادات السبع للأشخاص الأكثر فاعلية" أول كتاب أقرؤه في هذا ال [...]

      Why I Read this Book: There are few things more important to success than having a clear vision of what you want to accomplish. This book provided me with the fundamentals necessary for putting that vision together and helping others to do the same.Review:Stephen Covey came right over the top with this one. It’s funny to write one book about 7 habits and haveit be around 250 pages and then write another book about the 8th habit alone and have it be over 400. The truth is that every one of thos [...]

      It’s the sequel to his ‘Seven Habits‘ book, the eighth habit being ‘Find your voice, and then help others find theirs’. Great way to expand influence, although not so easy always!Anyway, I liked his definition of the ‘voice’, at the nexus of talent, need, and conscience.I do have a concern, though. Had he taken into account the reality of the business world today, where the driving force is not finding your voice but to ensure your survival? When the squeeze of margins everywhere h [...]

      I have read the "7 Habits" in 2006 and was taken aback by the insights of the book. I also went on and read some of his other books "Principle-centered Leadership" and "First Things First". These are two great books too but you start encounter some repetition. Three/four years back, I was gifted "The 3rd Alternative" and the book was above my expectations. In my opinion, he went on a new level while reading the 3rd Alternative. The diverse examples from different fields were really informative i [...]

      "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to mak [...]

      This is yet another great book by Stephen R. Covey. Here's a synopsis: The new Information/Knowledge Worker Age, exemplified by the Internet, calls for an eighth habit to achieve personal and organizational excellence: "Find your voice and inspire others to find theirs." Covey sees leadership "as a choice to deal with people in a way that will communicate to them their worth and potential so clearly they will come to see it in themselves." His holistic approach starts with developing one's own v [...]

      أقل من عادي. معظم الفصول والفقرات الجيدة كانت مُقتبسة من كتاب العادات السبع. عنوان الكتاب نفسه هو استثمار في نجاح كتاب العادات السبع.بدايته حتى منتصفه يستحق ثلاث نجوم ونصف ولكن مع إنهاء الكتاب شعرتُ أن نجمتين للإجمال كانت كافية.

    12. Casey on said:

      I listened to this book on CD, as I do most "self-help: books. I like to skim these for information and ideas rather than word for word and listening lends to this reading style. I really enjoyed the first few chapters of this book, thought they were well written and insightful. My appreciation for well-known principles spoken in new ways was satisfied. However, from here on out, the book really started to dry up for me, and I don't know that I would recommend it to anyone. Well, I might recomme [...]

    13. Annie on said:

      I really enjoyed 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and picked up "The 8th Habit" as a result. There are a lot of new concepts he introduces, primarily concepts surrounding leadership. At first I felt the book was repetitive, as there were many concepts and illustrative anecdotes which were taken directly from "7 Habits". However, towards the last 25% of the book, I really felt things came together and that is where I learned the most.

    14. Robert Chapman on said:

      This is the best book on leadership I have read to date. Some books focus on a single narrow aspect of leadership, this book takes a very holistic approach to the topic. The book also does a decent job of covering the predecessor book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, so this is a bonus if you have not read that book.The constant comparison and analysis of the leadership styles used in the Industrial Age vs. those required in the Knowledge Worker Age was excellent.

      At last I've finished! Below is my last installment.I'm reading this and "teaching" it: that is, talking and writing about what I'm learning, as I go along, as part of the 8th Habit challenge to solidify the ideas in my head. Condensed, the 8th Habit is "Find your voice and inspire others to find theirs." The book is broken down into "Discover Your Voice" and "Inspire Others to Find Theirs." Here is the twelfth installment of my summary: Chapter 15.Chapter 15: Using Our Voices Wisely to Serve Ot [...]

      This is a FANTASTIC book! I have been reading a LOT about leadership lately and I think this sums up the most important points I've read or heard about leadership in the last several months. This is a very comprehensive review of many important principles all as a part of the 8th Habit--finding your voice and inspiring others find theirs. I love the positive and all-inclusive approach to the topic.It's important to know your talents and gifts and then express them with vision, discipline, passio [...]

      Reading this book is like putting everything that I have learned about being a human in to proper perspective. It gave me very useful insights that anyone can use to be more effective person over all.What clearly resonated for me in this wonderful work of Stephen R. Covey is the idea that any human being is composed of 4 essential core: body, mind, heart, and spirit. I order to be happy, effective and successful in life, one must be able to strike a the right balance among the four. It reminded [...]

      One of the best books I have ever read. Stephen Covey is an excellent teacher and author. He teaches principles that if you can implement into your personal and work life, will truly make a difference to you and those you come in contact with. I checked this out of the library, but I want to buy a copy for my own collection. I would like to have it to review from time to time. I think it will truly make a difference in my life. The 8th Habit is to find your "voice" and help others to find their [...]

    20. JC on said:

      Like the previous book, 7 habits, this is a book I'd like to have on my own bookshelf at home as there are lots and lots of things to implement into the way I live my life and how I work. This book is a followup as the original 7 habits were written back in 1989, and while still applicable there are new ways to really apply them. The main theme of the book is to find your own voice and be your own person. You must know what you believe and then learn to apply everything together. Overall a very [...]

    21. Elizabeth Olson on said:

      Covey's "7 Habits of Highly Effective People" remains a class manual for focusing and improving the quality of one's own life. Here, he adds the 8th habit; in his words, 'Finding your voice and helping others find theirs". In other words, leadership and inspiration. Covey suggests taking an entire year to work through the principles and specific suggestions here. It's so jam packed with great ideas and insights I'd love to spend that year on the book, and work with others in exploring and enacti [...]

    22. Harley on said:

      This is a great book as a follow-up to the 7 Habits book. In fact, it's good even without that, as it presents a holistic view of people, their needs, and how to acheive greatness. It also addresses how many people really are just existing rather than living life to the max. I want to buy my own copy so I can go through it slowly over a year and put into practice all the suggestions I see I need. Highly recommended!

    23. Emily on said:

      This was such an excellent book - I think I actually liked it better than "7 Habits." The principles were amazing. It is written as a business book, but it can easily be applied to anybody, anywhere. The more you read out of it, the better it gets. I think everyone should read it, even those who haven't read "7 Habits" first (although that book was great too).

      هو انا بحاول اقرا اي حاجة عشان ارفع من روحي المعنوية - بس حقيقى الكتاب زفت - احنا ليه نقرا الهري ده واحنا عندنا علوم زي علم التزكية مثلا - معتقدش ان الكتب دي ممكن تعمل فيك حاجة غير انها تديك شوية حماس اهبل

    25. Krys Gut on said:

      I read this book before reading The 7 Habits, so perhaps my review is less credible. However, I’ve read enough self-improvement books to know that these authors will typically follow the same formula and just juggle the various themes around. So what is the 8th habit? Find your voice and inspire others to do the same. Also the 8th is apparently the apex where all the other 7 habits culminate, convenient, huh? Wouldn’t it be funny if the 8th turned out to be one he simply forgot in the previo [...]

    26. Goodnews on said:

      To live, to learn, to love, and to leave a legacy I have learnt from Stephen Covey that these are not just unique to me, but universal human needs. Finding my voice, as he says, has always been my never-ending mission, wherever I have been: school, work (employment), and now my client organisations. I find the book supportive of my mission: developing the internal power and moral authority to break out of organisational challenges, and becoming a significant force in surmounting them, for the sa [...]

    27. Erik on said:

      Stephen pegou carona no título de seu sucesso anterior, "Os 7 Hábitos das Pessoas Altamente Eficazes", embora o livro seja na verdade sobre liderança. Considerei isso um golpe contra o leitor desavisado que pensa se tratar de algum complemento. Somente na contracapa achamos algo que pode nos levar a entender que é um livro basicamente para o mundo empresarial. Ao contrário do primeiro livro (apesar do autor ser ex-mórmom), este é recheado de alusões religiosas e afirmações inverídicas [...]

    28. Sophie on said:

      Largely a rehashing of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People with a slightly different perspective. Though I'd say this much denser that it's predecessor, as well as being plagued by poor (unnecessary or overly complicated) graphics. I was also disappointed that many of the real-life stories he incorporates as illustrations are repeats from Living the 7 Habits : The Courage to Change; if he's got so many to choose from, why not find some original material? Overall I didn't think this was worth [...]

    29. Rachel on said:

      This was okay but definitely not as insightful as the 7 Habits book. There was a lot about finding your inner voice. These are my notes from the book:-Don't encourage enabling by doing too much for your kids or reminding them or give me the details of jobs that they already know how to do. No one wins from this.-Using an 80/20 ratio when interacting with your kids. 80% of the time it should be positive, 20 or less percent of the time for criticism, instruction, ruling, yelling, nitpicking, etc.- [...]

    30. Gordon on said:

      Another great work by Stephen Covey. As always great advice for leaders and followers of many disciplines. The 8th Habit is a very good sequel to the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Leaders. Find your voice and help other find theirs - is the essence of his message. At face value that may mean nothing. After you've read his book, the essence will be ingrained in your memory. Stephen's tautology is a bit unorthodox, but it sticks with you and rings true. His catchy phrases used to coin leader and co [...]
