IN TOUCH : Stephen Covey to visit New Zealand

Stephen Covey, best-selling international author and one of the world’s leading business and management gurus, is coming to speak to New Zealand’s top business leaders. He will be presenting seminars in Auckland on 27 March and in Wellington on 28 March.
Providing an innovative and direct approach to strategy, Covey – named one of Time magazine’s 25 most influential Americans in 1996 – equips leaders with the tools to create successful organisations during his seminar on “Leadership Greatness”.
The Leadership Greatness seminar takes “mind-set, skill-set, tool-set” approach to developing leaders who can apply the “4 Imperatives” to unleash the talent and capability of their team against the organisation’s highest priorities.
The 4 Imperatives of Great Leaders are:
•Inspire trust among direct reports, superiors, and peers;
•Align systems and work processes so they facilitate rather than hinder achievement;
•Clarify purpose by articulating why goals are established and how individual work contributes to those goals; and
•Unleash the unique talent and contribution of people on their team.
The presentation will incorporate Covey’s best-selling book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, as well as his latest success, The 8th Habit, showing how those habits are more relevant now than ever before.
In 2002, Forbes named The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People one of the top 10 most influential management books ever and survey by Chief Executive Magazine recognised it as one of the two most influential business books of the 20th century.
The book has sold more than 15 million copies in 38 languages throughout the world and the audiobook on tape is the best selling non-fiction audio in history, selling more than 1.5 million copies. Covey’s newest book, The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness, which was released in November 2004, has risen to the top of several best-seller lists, including New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today Money, Business Week, and Barnes & Noble. The 8th Habit has sold more than 360,000 copies.
A special discounted rate is available for NZIM members who attend the event.
