With a global focus on the 2014 Boston Marathon, we take time to remember those impacted by the events of the 2013 Marathon. It is important to always remember the countless examples of courage, support, and life-saving heroics.
During his many years of working with groups around the world, Stephen R. Covey (best-selling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People) had the incredible opportunity to personally observe how organizations best leverage the unique contributions of everyone in the workforce, regardless of their age, generation or style. After studying a wide-range of diverse groups including Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) such as Grameen Bank, and global organizations like Marriott Hotels International, Covey found that an important step in building and sustaining long-term results required the thoughtful process of creating guiding principles. These principles provide organizations and all employees with a baseline which provides clarity around performance and results.
