Sep 18: Bless Your Beautiful Hide!

At age 79, Stephen Covey, the best-selling author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, passed away following injuries he sustained in a bicycle accident.  The in-demand speaker, writer and entrepreneur had spent years teaching people the foundations of effective leadership in life and business.

Covey was a guest on The Christophers’ TV program in 2006.  Producer Tony Rossi remembers him well.

He says, “Covey was not only friendly; he burst into song.  When I took him to meet our make-up artist, Janet, he spontaneously started singing Bless Your Beautiful Hide from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers!  Janet appreciated the compliment, and the whole crew was left smiling.  In that impromptu moment, Covey put everyone at ease and demonstrated an important leadership principle.  If you connect with people on an individual level, inspire respect in them, and even make them smile, they’ll want to do a good job for you.  You won’t just be a boss; you’ll be a leader.  Covey obviously practiced what he preached.”

Support your faith with goodness.  (2 Peter 1:5)

Enable to inspire respect and joy, Lord.
