Of the thousands of leadership perspectives that I have studied over the past 40 years, the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, and one of the sequels, Living the 7 Habits, by Stephen Covey have had the most profound influence on my approach to leadership. The timeless principles captured in his work have helped me successfully navigate the stormy seas of organization transformation as President of the Nabisco Foods Company, CEO of Campbell Soup Company and today, as Chairman of Avon Products. I highly recommend them.

Living the 7 Habits is comprised of an uplifting collection of stories and examples of hope and encouragement as they are touched by the words of real people and their experiences of change. I was asked to contribute a chapter about leading organizations and my experience as President at Nabisco Foods Company. That chapter is available for download above.
