My Tribute to Stephen Covey
The well-known author, Stephen R. Covey, who impacted the world with his books and self-help products died on Monday, July 16, 2012. Covey died in Idaho Falls, Idaho in the hospital with his wife and all of his 9 children at his side. His death was due to complications from a fall, having lost control of his bicycle on a steep road the previous April.
In order to pay tribute to the contribution Covey has made in my life and career I thought I would highlight several posts that commemorate his thinking:
