Sadly, we report that Stephen Covey, author of “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” and a leader in the world of learning and development, died today at the age of 79.
I had the privilege of working with Stephen a number of times in his distinguished career. He brought a sense of focus, clarity and passion to his writing, his speaking and his advocacy of skills and development.
In 2001, a few days after 9/11, I did a podcast with Stephen about his reactions to the events and how it might impact managers in business: http://www.masie.com/perspectives
Stephen, you contributed so much to people and the field of learning and development. Your work taught so many people how to focus their priorities and life. And your son Stephen M.R. Covey extends your work with breakthrough efforts on “Trust”. Stephen Covey, you will be missed!
Yours in learning,
