Inspire Others to Find Their Voice

In addition to finding your own voice, Covey is focused on Inspiring Others to Find Their Voice. In fact the majority of the book is dedicated to inspiring others, which Covey calls leadership. Covey's definition of leadership is as follows:
Leadership is communicating to people their worth and potential so clearly that they come to see it in themselves.

So here is the recap of the intro chapters to the 8th Habit.

- The Pain: As we move from the Industrial to the Knowledge Worker Age, many people feel frustrated, stuck and ineffective.
- The Problem: Most people are being treated in the "Thing" Mind-set of the Industrial Age.
- The Solution: Shoot for greatness by developing a Whole-Person Paradigm incorporating, mind, body, heart and spirit and inspire others to develop their greatness.
