FranklinCovey—a company that focuses on improving performance through changes in human behavior—is the product of a 1997 convergence of two different lines of thought regarding time management—Hyrum Smith’s Franklin Day Planners and the philosophy behind Stephen Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. FranklinCovey has been expanding its multidisciplinary approach ever since then to generate new modes of thinking about the meaning and nature of effectiveness. Nowadays, this approach includes their On Demand interactive online courses, live workshops, and the same books that brought them recognition in the first place. The philosophies guiding these products has also expanded from the core imperatives of Stephen’s 7 Habits to include trust-building concepts from The Speed of Trust by Stephen’s son, Stephen M. R. Covey.
