Dr. Stephen R. Covey
October 24, 1932 – July 16, 2012
This week, we are re-posting a show we recorded back on July 14, 2009, with our good friend, the late, great, Dr. Stephen R. Covey. Dr. Covey died two years to the week after this show. His wisdom is timeless, and he lived his life, as he always taught, "in crescendo". He influenced millions of people, including world leaders, captains of industry, and movers and shakers in all walks of life. His ‘7 Habits’ brand continues to inspire, and will for generations to come. We were honored to have him as our special guest on that day, and he was very generous with his time, passion, and knowledge. Dr. Covey was very supportive of the Diabetes community through his valuable resource, 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People® with Diabetes'. He was a tremendous friend and inspiration to all of our team, as individuals, and to DiabetesPowerShow. For that, we are eternally thankful.
