All Work and No Play: Leadership Writing Takes a Holiday

Sharpening the Saw

One of the greatest leadership lessons of all time, sharpen the saw, comes from the greatest leadership books of all time: Stephen Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. (To see our list of the Ten Best Leadership Books of All Time, follow this link.)

The seventh of the seven habits encourages those who wish to be truly effective to take time to exercise their minds, spirits and bodies. Without this, Covey argues, you cannot become truly effective.

We agree, of course. That’s why Covey’s book is Number One on our list, and that’s why we were absent from the world of Leadership Development blogging for the past month. We were sharpening the saw.

With our saws now razor sharp, we’re again ready to help you grow and mature as a leader.
