7 Habits of Highly Effective Leaders

"7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen Richards Covey, a famous American management master, is one of Forbes' "10 most influential management books ever."The author of this book, Stephen R. Covey (Stephen R. Covey), has a master's degree in business administration from Harvard University and a doctorate degree from Brigham Young University. He is the founder of the Covey Leadership Center and the co-chairman of Franklin Covey. He has assisted many companies, educational institutions and government agencies in training leaders. This book has the same influence in the United States as the "Bible". This book summarizes the seven habits of successful people

  • 【be proactive】Being proactive does not only mean the attitude of acting, it also means that people must be responsible for their lives
  • 【beging with the end in mind】Before doing anything, you must clearly know the direction, [There is a goal, there is a result]
  • 【put first things first】You have to decide what your highest priorites are and avoid ineffective efforts.
  • 【think win/win】The principle of win-win is the basis of all human interactions, including five independent aspects: "win-win character" is the foundation, and then a "win-win relationship" is established, which derives a "win-win agreement", which requires a "win-win system" as a cultivation environment. This is done through a "win-win process".
  • 【seek first to understand, then to be understood】When we abandon the answering mind and change to the understanding mind to listen to others, we can open up real communication and enhance mutual relations. After the other party gains understanding, they will feel respected and recognized, and then take it off as a precaution. If they talk frankly, they will understand each other more smoothly and naturally. Knowing the other requires kindness, and self-solving requires courage. A balance between the two can greatly increase the efficiency of communication.
  • 【synergize】The strength of the individual is the niche for the integration of the team and the family, so that the overall result is one plus one greater than two. Practicing the integration of interpersonal relationships and teams, abandoning hostile attitudes, do not aim at compromise, and not only stop at cooperation, they want creative cooperation.
  • 【sharpen the saw】Work alone does not bring economic security. Only good thinking, learning, creativity and adaptability can be invincible. Having wealth does not mean economic independence, only the ability to create wealth is truly reliable.

All he wants is to "repeat the past": to be with Daisy, the love of his life. But Daisy is now married to a rich man, and the two have a daughter.

Later Nick realized that no matter how dignified the appearance, these giants are actually very "indifferent people", Tom and Daisy are no exception, and Tom also has his own lover.

Managing Oneself 

We live in an age of unprecedented opportunity: with ambition, drive, and talent, you can rise to the top of your chosen profession regardless of where you started out. But with opportunity comes responsibility. Companies today aren't managing their knowledge workers careers. Instead, you must be your own chief executive officer. That means it's up to you to carve out your place in the world and know when to change course. And it's up to you to keep yourself engaged and productive during a career that may span some 50 years. In Managing Oneself, Peter Drucker explains how to do it. The keys: Cultivate a deep understanding of yourself by identifying your most valuable strengths and most dangerous weaknesses; Articulate how you learn and work with others and what your most deeply held values are; and Describe the type of work environment where you can make the greatest contribution. Only when you operate with a combination of your strengths and self-knowledge can you achieve true and lasting excellence. Managing Oneself identifies the probing questions you need to ask to gain the insights essential for taking charge of your career. Peter Drucker was a writer, teacher, and consultant. His 34 books have been published in more than 70 languages. He founded the Peter F. Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management, and counseled 13 governments, public services institutions, and major corporations. 

Jack Welch WINNING 

If you judge books by their covers, Jack Welch's Winning certainly grabs your attention. Testimonials on the back come from none other than Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Rudy Giuliani, and Tom Brokaw, and other praise comes from Fortune, Business Week, and Financial Times. As the legendary retired CEO of General Electric, Welch has won many friends and admirers in high places. In this latest book, he strives to show why. Winning describes the management wisdom that Welch built up through four and a half decades of work at GE, as he transformed the industrial giant from a sleepy "Old Economy" company with a market capitalization of $4 billion to a dynamic new one worth nearly half a trillion dollars.

Welch's first book, Jack: Straight from the Gut, was structured more as a conventional CEO memoir, with stories of early career adventures, deals won and lost, boardroom encounters, and Welch's process and philosophy that helped propel his success as a manager. In Winning, Welch focuses on his actual management techniques. He starts with an overview of cultural values such as candor, differentiation among employees, and inclusion of all voices in decision-making. In the second section he covers issues around one's own company or organization: the importance of hiring, firing, the people management in between, and a few other juicy topics like crisis management. From there, Welch moves into a discussion of competition, and the external factors that can influence a company's success: strategy, budgeting, and mergers and acquisitions. Welch takes a more personal turn later with a focus on individual career issues--how to find the right job, get promoted, and deal with a bad boss--and then a final section on what he calls "Tying Up Loose Ends." Those interested in the human side of great leaders will find this last section especially appealing. In it, Welch answers the most interesting questions that he's received in the last several years while traveling the globe addressing audiences of executives and business-school students. Perhaps the funniest question in this section comes at the very end, posed originally by a businesan in Frankfurt, who queried Welch on whether he thought he'd go to heaven (we won't give away the ending).
