Former President and COO of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company
For years I have been using the 7 Habits as guiding principles in leading my business. I had to read "The 8th Habit." Having done so, I am completely wowed, captured, and empowered. "The 8th Habit" is a true masterpiece, a must-read. These principles of personal and organizational leadership, when lived, unleash human genius and inspire deep commitment and magnificent levels of service and satisfaction. This book will be my gift to all my associates as required reading for all of my future endeavors.

The 8th Habit is simply to 1.) "Find your voice", which is the overlapping of your Talents (what you're good at), Passion (what you love to do), Need (what the world needs, even enough to pay you for), and Conscience (that sense of what is right to do).
And 2.) "Inspire Others to Find Theirs", which is done in your relationships & organizations, by following principles that expand your influence.
The most powerful concept in the book for me was that of "Moral Authority" which is when a person chooses to live by principles (like fairness, respect, accountability, mutual understanding, integrity, contribution, & meaning) in his relationships. Then as trust is earned, the person gradually becomes a leader of those around him by their consent. He has earned their trust and they freely give it to him without him demanding it. Like Ghandi when he said he would not eat until his nation stopped fighting, and they freely obeyed by their own choice.
The book outlines 2 paths in life which we all choose: Either the culturally-scripted well-travelled path to mediocrity, or the upper road to greatness. Since this "greatness" builds upon the concept of "effectiveness", this book is best for people who have already reached a certain degree of understanding & competence in effectiveness, and are ready to search deeper, to get to an even higher grasp of the unconditional worth of all people and how to unleash human potential.
I'm just a 25 year old medic in BC, with very little leadership experience. But if I become involved in projects which involve cooperation of other people, I intend to apply these principles and even buy a few copies of this book for those whose influence I earn, so that they may educate & obey their consciences too.

Find your voice and inspire others find theirs. This book is about transition from effectiveness to greatness.
A study book to mature individuals and life changing.
I can't recommend this book highly enough. I would say try this one and go back to the "7 Habits of Highly Effective People", his previous work.
Book came in great condition.
