Quotations from Stephen Covey:

 Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly.

Stephen Covey, (1932 - 2012) Author & Consultant



 In addition to self-awareness, imagination and conscience, it is the fourth human endowment-independent will-that really makes effective self-management possible. It is the ability to make decisions and choices and to act in accordance with them. It is the ability to act rather than to be acted upon, to proactively carry out the program we have developed through the other three endowments. Empowerment comes from learning how to use this great endowment in the decisions we make every day.

Stephen Covey, (1932 - 2012) Author & Consultant



 There are three constants in life - change, choice and principles.

Stephen Covey, (1932 - 2012) Author & Consultant



 Many people have not really experienced even a moderate degree of synergy in their family life or in other interactions.

They've been trained and scripted into defensive and protective communications or into believing that life and other people can't be trusted.

This represents one of the great tragedies and wastes in life, because so much potential remains untapped - completely undeveloped and unused, Ineffective people live day after day with unused potential.

They experience synergy only in small, peripheral ways in their lives.

Stephen Covey, (1932 - 2012) Author & Consultant
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People



 The 'Inside-Out' approach to personal and interpersonal effectiveness means to start first with self; even more fundamentally, to start with the most inside part of self -- with your paradigms, your character, and your motives.

The inside-out approach says that private victories precede public victories, that making and keeping promises to ourselves precedes making and keeping promises to others.

It says it is futile to put personality ahead of character, to try to improve relationships with others before improving ourselves.

Stephen Covey, (1932 - 2012) Author & Consultant
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People



 The leader is the one who climbs the tallest tree, surveys the entire situation, and yells, 'Wrong jungle!' ...

Busy, efficient producers and managers often respond ... 'Shut up! We’re making progress!'

Stephen Covey, (1932 - 2012) Author & Consultant



 A cardinal principle of Total Quality escapes too many managers: you cannot continuously improve interdependent systems and processes until you progressively perfect interdependent, interpersonal relationships.

Stephen Covey, (1932 - 2012) Author & Consultant
Covey on Quality (paper) 



 Trust is the life-blood of an organization.

Stephen Covey, (1932 - 2012) Author & Consultant



 Private victories precede public victories.

You can't invert that process any more than you can harvest a crop before you plant it.
