Stephen Covey – Primary Greatness: The 12 Levers of Success Audio Book Summary
Stephen Covey is perhaps most famous for his groundbreaking work, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, a book that is taught in high school and universities across the world, and is also a go-to read for any management professional.
In his newest book, Primary Greatness, Covey takes a new look at some of the same principles, extending the ideas presented in The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People to focus on how truly great individuals — individuals who are not just effective, but who master their domains to create truly a lasting impact in their fields — operate, and the qualities that they share.
Covey distills these characteristics down to twelve key principles. The twelve principles are: integrity, contribution, priority, sacrifice, service, responsibility, loyalty, reciprocity, diversity, learning, teaching, and renewal.
Every great leader, in any discipline, shares these qualities and, what is more, knows how to balance them to achieve a life of mastery. However, if you do not yet have all of these traits, whether you’re missing one or all twelve, you shouldn’t worry, because there a definite, practical steps you can take to develop these traits within yourself.
Through habit, you can re-train your work and life habits in order to incorporate these attitude and characteristics. None of them is particularly elusive, but they all take disciplined intention in order to master. Using the tips and suggestions outlined in Primary Greatness, you can start working with these principles immediately, and lead yourself to new levels of success and greatness in your own life…however you choose to define the term.
Already a bestseller, Primary Greatness is destined to become another classic work in the field of personal development and success. Whether you’re just starting out or looking to refine your skills to take your life to the next level — in any way — this is a great book to read.
