Law of the Harvest
Stephen Covey's Lessons in Leadership Series
DVD, Leader's Guide and Participant's Workbook
(Program length: 7 minutes)
Law of the Harvest draws workplace lessons from an unusual source: farming. It is an enlightening look at the true meaning of ‘reaping what you sow,’ and the importance of a strong work ethic. Viewers meet Grant Neibaur, a potato farmer whose work, like all farmers,’ is largely dictated by Mother Nature (thus quite unpredictable). Grant illustrates the folly of seeking quick-fix solutions. Persistence, patience and perseverance, as well as attention to detail, are imperative: with potato farming, it takes three to four years from soil prep to harvest; short-cuts simply don’t cut it. The unpredictable nature of farming provides an excellent backdrop, bringing to light that each task has great impact on the outcome. It’s an opportunity to examine process, quality, competence, timeliness, sacrifice and preparation. Law of the Harvest is an opportunity to create success in your organization from the ground up, thanks to Dr. Steven Covey, founder and chair of the Covey Leadership Center and author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
