In 2002, I finally was able to participate with other leaders at a Covey workshop which I have to say was transformational in the way we worked. In fact, it was the impetus of instituting the closed door policy at least once a week so we could focus on the “big rocks” and the strategic issues.
You can view a video from Franklin Covey on the Analogy of the Big Rocks here, or view hundreds of articles from the company Franklin Covey here.
Covey's four quadrant time management model has become a foundational framework in most time management programs today.
