Citações Stephen R. Covey


„Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.“

— Stephen R. Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change
p. 239

„Let natural consequences teach responsible behavior.“

— Stephen R. Covey
Context: Let natural consequences teach responsible behavior. One of the kindest things we can do is to let the natural or logical consequences of people's actions teach them responsible behavior. They may not like it or us, but popularity is a fickle standard by which to measure character development. Insisting on justice demands more true love, not less. We care enough for their growth and security to suffer their displeasure. Ch. 11

„Trust is the glue that holds everything together.“

It creates the environment in which all of the other elements — win-win stewardship agreements, self-directing individuals and teams, aligned structures and systems, and accountability — can flourish. p. 243 <!-- Originally added as a paraphrase : The moment of making choice is the moment of truth! -->
