Roger Merrill

Roger Merrill believes that the best way to predict your future is to create it.

He has inspired thousands of people to do just that by helping them learn to be more effective in what they do. In his writings, consulting activities and seminars, Roger Merrill teaches that personal effectiveness is both the foundation of organizational effectiveness and the fruit of a principle-centered approach to life. This approach has proven effective with audiences and organizations worldwide.

Study, research and over thirty years of experience as a line manager, senior executive, trainer and consultant have convinced Roger Merrill that the need for effective leadership is real and that leadership must grow from within. Personal responsibility and integrity are key to success, as are strong relationships, management systems and organizational alignment. With a degree in Business Management, and extensive graduate work and research in Organizational Behavior and Adult Learning, his life-long interest in leadership has prompted him to search for proven principles of effectiveness throughout history--as well as in the everyday activities of individuals and organizations today.

Roger Merrill is one of the founding members of the Covey Leadership Center (now the Franklin Covey Company), which specializes in leadership development. He has worked with many of the world's most respected organizations, government agencies and small up-and-coming enterprises. His strong conceptual understanding of leadership has contributed much to the highly successful programs, books and materials Franklin Covey offers.

Along with Stephen R. Covey, Roger Merrill and his wife Rebecca authored First Things First. Other author credits include Connections, Quadrant II Time Management., contributory work on Principle-Centered Leadership and various articles and materials focusing on principle-centered leadership.
