I have been listening to the 7 habits of highly effective people audiobook, its long and difficult to listen to.
I first read the book in 1998, it was a fundemental book in the growth and management training within Orange where I worked at the time.
I really invested time into that book then and the principles I learned really helped me to grow as a new graduate and get management positions at orange.
Now I am running my own business and thought it would be a good time to go over that material again. I am really glad I have, its still difficult, its a detailed book with lots of information and stories built into it. I really have enjoyed some shorter form business books recently especially Gary Veynerchuk - Crush It but sometimes you need some depth to learn some key principles.
I dont like some of the religious overtones but if you can see through some of that there are great learning to be had.
I really enjoyed remembering habit 5 - seek first to understand, then be understood. Its a less obvious habit but very very valuable.
I have a copy of 7 habits of highly effective families that i will read soon, my wife has read it and liked it even though she cannot stand business / personal development books.
Have you read it? What did you think? Have you tried the audiobook?
Whats the best business / personal development audiobook you have read?
