Discussion/Analysis Prompt

Covey’s book was first published in 1989. This was nearly a decade before the advent of the internet and social media. Discuss the central conclusions in his book and consider whether they are still relevant in the digital age. What changes in the way we use technology and communicate remotely might impact the usefulness of his methods?

Teaching Suggestion: It might be helpful to have students first compile a list of Covey’s central conclusions. Then, students might consider how he would have implemented his ideas in the decades before the internet. Finally, the group might engage in a general discussion of how those same interactions would be handled today.
