Stephen M.R. Covey is a co-founder of the FranklinCovey Global Speed of Trust Practice and CoveyLink Worldwide. A sought-after and compelling keynote speaker and adviser on trust, leadership, ethics, sales, and high performance, he speaks to audiences around the world. Stephen M. R. Covey speaks from the practical and informed perspective of a CEO, not as a theorist.

Covey is the New York Times and number one Wall Street Journal best-selling author of The Speed of Trust, a groundbreaking, paradigm-shifting book that challenges our age-old assumption that trust is merely a "soft," social virtue and instead, demonstrates that it is a hard-edged economic driver—a learnable, measurable skill that makes organizations more profitable, people more promotable, and relationships more energizing. He advocates that nothing eclipses the speed of trust, and that the ability to establish, cultivate, extend, and restore trust with all stakeholders is the critical leadership competency of the new global economy.

Stephen M.R. Covey passionately delivers that message and is skilled in enabling leaders and organizations to experience the dividends of high trust. Audiences and organizations alike resonate with his insightful, relevant approach to real-time issues that affect their immediate and long-term performance.

He is former CEO of the Covey Leadership Center, which, under his stewardship, became the largest leadership development company in the world. Covey, along with Greg Link, led the strategy that propelled his father, Dr. Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, to be one of the two most influential business books of the twentieth century, according to CEO Magazine.

A Harvard MBA, he joined Covey Leadership Center as a Client Developer and later became National Sales Manager and then President and CEO. Under Stephen M. R. Covey's direction, the company grew rapidly and profitably, achieving Inc. 500 status.

Over the years, Stephen M.R. Covey has gained considerable respect and influence with executives and leaders of Fortune 500 companies as well as with mid- and small-sized private-sector and public-sector organizations he has consulted. Clients recognize his unique perspective on real-world organizational issues based on his practical experience as a former CEO.
