Angela Dodson, an independent editor and publishing consultant, says that in the publishing industry, Steven Covey will be remembered not so much for his message of personal empowerment as for his incredible ability to capture his ideas into easily digestible bites and to market them in various forms, books, audio books, organizational products, and calendars. “The notion that relatively simple, motivational books would sell millions of copies might have been laughed at before Covey, but he paved the way for others to have similar success in marketing books and spinoffs of those books,” says Dodson.
Dick Ambro, a marketing professional and speaker, says that as a certified instructor of multiple 7 Habits Programs, he has had the opportunity to meet Dr. Covey and hear him speak on multiple occasions. “Personally, he changed my perception of what it meant to be effective rather than successful. With the tools and stories he created, I was able to benefit hundreds of individuals. Multiply my experience by the thousands of certified instructors and his impact has already been epic. However, the true impact is the benefits that living the 7 Habits has had on millions of families, businesses, governments and nonprofit organizations,” he says. “Covey was a powerful businessman with a unique sense of humility, which I witnessed personally. My Native American friends believe that no one truly dies until everyone touched by their spirit has died, which would seem to make Dr. Covey almost immortal. Not bad for a person who started out as a saw sharpener.’
