. (NYSE:FC), is excited to announce that films from its
leadership and performance improvement solutions have been awarded a

Awards as part of the Stevie Awards® 16th Annual American
Business Awards.

The Grand Stevie Awards competition tallies award points based upon the

FranklinCovey's gold, silver and bronze awards were centered around
films from two of its newest leadership performance improvement
solutions: Clayton
Christensen Signature: Find Out Why – The Key to Successful Innovation

and The
4 Essential Roles of Leadership
™. Both solutions are available
within the FranklinCovey All
Access Pass

"As visual storytellers, it's a great honor to bring compelling content
alive," said John Foss, Kaleidoscope film director. "We are so grateful
for our longstanding relationship with FranklinCovey and look forward to
the films we will create together in the future."

FranklinCovey's leadership solution, Clayton Christensen Signature:
Find Out Why – The Key to Successful Innovation
is based on 25 years
of research and practice by Clayton
, Harvard Business School professor and one of the
world's most influential business leaders, and Bob
, an insightful practitioner and developer of over 3,000
product innovations. The solution is also based, in part, on the
best-selling book, Competing Against Luck, co-authored by Clayton
M. Christensen, Taddy Hall, Karen Dillon and David S. Duncan.

Films from Find Out Why garnered five awards in total; two gold,
one silver and two bronze awards. Judges notes from review sessions
reflect the predominant sentiment around FranklinCovey's films.

"FranklinCovey once again tells a beautiful story with beautiful images
and production. It is just magnificent in every way. I wish I could
provide a suggestion for improvement, but it doesn't get better."

FranklinCovey's leadership solution, The 4 Essential Roles of
is the product of a two-year research project conducted
by FranklinCovey to understand the most vital leadership roles. Based on
more than 100,000 interviews with organizational and learning leaders,
its analysis and synopsis of leadership studies worldwide, and its work
with more than one million leaders in organizations of all sizes, the
solution was developed to respond to the need for leaders to be "ready
now" to lead their respective teams and organizations.

The need for these types of leaders has been accelerated by the
significant demographic shift in the marketplace, where older leaders
are rapidly moving to retirement and younger leaders and associates now
make up the biggest demographic group in the workplace. An
under-investment in leadership development during the global recession
means that many leaders are often in leadership roles years before they
receive meaningful leadership development.

The well-researched, relevant solution provides leaders with a deeper
understanding of key leadership principles which will enable them to
better lead themselves and their teams to achieve sustained, superior
performance. Its inclusion in the FranklinCovey All Access Pass, allows
passholders to easily engage in the solution, equipping their mid-to
senior-level leaders to face and conquer the daily challenges they
encounter within their teams and organizations.

Films from The 4 Essential Roles of Leadership garnered three
awards in total; two silver and one bronze award. These awards helped
FranklinCovey sweep the motivational category of the Stevie Video Awards.

"If I could give this higher than a 10 I would," said a member of the 4
Essential Roles of Leadership
judging panel. "Beautiful, touching,
inspiring and a useful/great message. A+."
