Milwaukee, WI, May 03, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- In today’s busy world, more and more people are feeling stressed, overwhelmed and crunched for time. For baby boomers, a generation often pegged as wanting to “do it all,” this can be a particularly relevant concern.
Dr. Stephen R. Covey, author of the international bestseller, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, co-founder of FranklinCovey and a well-known leadership expert and organizational consultant, now joins BoomerTowne.com’s inaugural Towne Council to provide advice to boomers to help them better manage their time and effectively balance their work and lives.
Covey has partnered with the new Web site, which was created to help baby boomers connect with their peers and find information on topics ranging from lifestyle and health to legal and financial matters. As a member of the site’s Towne Council, he will offer suggestions and tips through informational Webcasts, an interactive online chat session and articles relating to time management, communication and character development.
“Everyone has unique talents, capabilities and work to do in their personal and professional lives,” said Covey. “The tragedy is that our unique contributions are often never made because the important ‘first things’ in our lives are choked out by other urgent things. By visiting Boomertowne.com baby boomers will have access information to help them to pursue their passions, no matter how busy or uncertain their lives might be.”
In Covey’s Webcasts, visitors will learn how to improve their leadership and communication skills, create a work-life balance, and manage their time both personally and professionally. Covey will also revisit The 7 Habits from his bestselling book.
In addition to the Webcast, Covey will host an interactive online chat with visitors of BoomerTowne.com to answer leadership and time management questions and provide advice. He will take questions from registered BoomerTowne.com citizens (registered members) who are interested in learning more about Covey’s areas of expertise. Registration for the site is free. For more information, and for Covey’s online chat date and time, visit BoomerTowne.com.
