Student of MA in International Leisure and Tourism Studies Elena Starkova tells: As you can notice my news are called Meet Dr. Covey. And does anybody of you know who is he? 

I think if you do you would be really willing to meet him in reality. So for those who had never heard a word of Stephen Covey I give some introduction.

Dr Covey is an internationally respected leadership authority and organizational expert. He is the author of the book "The 7 habits of highly effective people" which was sold in more than 15 million copies.

And we are studying it in my MAILTS program ( MA in International Leisure and Tourism Studies ) in Stenden University after which we will be given a certificate of attending the course of becoming a highly effective person.

But what is so interesting about this book? Why it became a best seller? The answer is very simple. This management book teaches you how to become a leader. The leader of your own life, the creator of your destiny.

It suggests you 7 habits, 7 lessons in personal change. And they will make you highly effective person if you apply them to your life. It seems so easy and so simple. All the habits can be arranged in 3 groups. 

First one is called Private Victory and it brings you to the level of Independency. The second emphasizes on Public Victory and the third is the highest achievement in a human development by Covey. It is the level of Interdependency.

So now you may guess the reason why I really wanted to meet this person. And it happened so that he was coming to our school, to Stenden University!

He was going to present his new book "The 8 habit: from Effectiveness to Greatness" and to answer all our questions. I sent 4 questions by email for Dr Covey and I was interested if he would choose any of it.

And can you imagine my surprise when during his presentation he answered all my questions.

They were: Did you develop all of the 7 habits in you?
And Do you think the vast development of the world may arouse new habits?
