In today's challenging and complex world, being highly effective is the price of entry to the playing field. To thrive, innovate, excel, and lead in this new reality, we must reach beyond effectiveness toward fulfillment, contribution, and greatness. Research is showing, however, that the majority of people are not thriving. They are neither fulfilled nor excited. Tapping into the higher reaches of human motivation requires a new mindset, a new skill-set --a new habit. Dr. Covey's new book, The 8th Habit®: From Effectiveness to Greatness, is a roadmap to help you find daily fulfillment and excitement.
Do you ever feel that people don’t really hear what you’re saying…they don’t respect your ideas and opinions…and they overlook your contributions? Assertiveness, not aggressiveness, is the key to getting heard, earning respect, and being recognized and rewarded for your strengths. Assertiveness is speaking up for yourself while being fair and respectful to others. It’s negotiating so everybody walks away from the table satisfied. And it’s about effective, honest, straightforward communication.
