Stephen R. Covey, bestselling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, will offer insight into improving family relationships in a free lecture at California State University, Sacramento at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 17 in the University Union Ballroom. Titled “Strengthening Families and Communities,” the hour-and-a-half lecture is presented by the University’s Center for Family Studies.

Using the 7 Habits as a foundation, Covey will discuss the differences between effective and ineffective families and offer principles that can enable family members to better communicate and resolve challenges. He will share insightful, poignant and humorous experiences from his own life, and from families who are striving to live these guiding principles.

Covey is vice chairman of FranklinCovey, a leading global professional services firm. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has sold more than 13 million copies in 36 languages worldwide.

Free parking for the talk will be available from 6 to 9:30 p.m. in University Lots 4, 6 and 8, near the University Union off State University Drive East.
