Ft. Myers “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People!” 

Stephen R. Covey’s book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, continues to be a best seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology and focuses on timeless principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Come meet our panelists who showcase or have taught these habits & made a difference not only in them.
