Last year 250,000 people, many from small operations, attended seminars based on The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People and other Stephen Covey books. You can too -- or you can create your own sales-training program from the books and tapes. Here's a rundown of the most popular Covey courses:

The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, a three-day seminar that costs $1,495 per person, focuses on interpersonal skills such as empathetic listening. Every 2.4 days, or at least 150 times a year, there's a Seven Habits class going on somewhere. First Things First, a one-day course that costs $295 a head, focuses on time management and personal productivity. Covey Leadership Week, a weeklong Covey fest priced at $3,900 a person, stresses organizational and managerial skills.

The Seven Habits and First Things First seminars are held at Covey headquarters, in Provo, Utah; at 62 other training centers across the country; and by request at customers' sites. Covey Leadership Week sessions are held at several Utah resorts and at customers' sites only. For more information, call 800-255-0777.
