From the Paper:

"Dr. Stephen R. Covey, (Utah, Alpha Tau '50) had built himself a distinguished career at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. The material Covey was ready to take around the globe is what has become known today as Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective People (Stephen Covey). These Seven Habits came about through a doctoral study Covey had done on "success" literature published in America since 1776.
"To better convey his message, Covey founded Stephen R. Covey & Associates, which has evolved into the Covey Leadership Center. The instruction offered at the Leadership Center is described as "principle-centered leadership as a foundational inside out approach to significantly improving quality, leadership, innovation, trust, teamwork, customer-focused service, organizational alignment, and many other strategic corporate initiatives." In August 1993, USA Today called Covey "the hottest self-improvement consultant to hit U.S. business since Dale Carnegie revealed How to Win Friends and Influence People."
