Sean Covey is an advocate and consultant in educational tranformation, focusing on the need to put less emphasis on academics and more emphasis on finding and developing the unique talents of each student. Sean collaborates with parents, educators, schools, and kids to give youth the skills, support, and inspiration they need to be the best person they can be. He is the best-selling author of various books dealing with leadership and character development including The 7 Habits of Healthy Teens and The 7 Habits of Happy Kids.

Currently Sean serves as Vice-President for FranklinCovey, a global company that specializes in performance improvement through making changes to human behavior. He has overseen development of the majority of their materials and programs along with the partnerships they hold in over 150 countries.

Sean credits his own success to two adults that made a great impact on him when he was young: 1. His 7th grade speech teacher who took him under her wing at a time when he absolutely hated school. 2. His high school football coach who kept him on the field even after Sean did terribly the first half of his first game. Sean believes that if it weren’t for him, he never would have gone on to be a starting quarterback for Brigham Young University and ESPN’s MVP two times.

Keynote Speech


Sean Covey surveys the changes educators feel need to occur within our school systems including a greater emphasis on developing students as individuals and the importance of teachers as role models. He offers his own observations on what school faculties can do to turn talk into true transformation. “If we’re not careful you can talk so much and be so scared about trying something that you don’t do anything, because there’s no perfect silver bullet,” Sean warns. “So my advice would be to listen to everything you’ve heard, but also move forward in bold ways and try things. I think there are several different approaches to improving our schools, and to individualizing better, so that we can help kids bring out unique talents.”

Sean Covey Interview


Sean Covey talks about his international program “The Leader in Me,” which aims to transform schools for the better. The program is based on the belief that a school’s success is based on three areas: academics, the school’s culture, and character. “Right now I think part of the challenge that we have in our country is that the focus is entirely on academics,” Sean comments. “It’s important of course, but not at the expense of these other two. And if you get the culture right and also teach kids character, 21st century skills, how to be leaders of their own lives, it’ll improve the academics.”
