Exceptional Films Impress to Earn Multiple Awards

Franklin Covey Co. (NYSE:FC), a global firm specializing in
organizational performance improvement, and Kaleidoscope Pictures have
been recognized with 29 awards for films from two of its newest
leadership development solutions.

The total award tally spreads across three different award outlets:
Communicator Awards, honoring the best digital, mobile, audio, video and
social content, the CINE Golden Eagle Awards, honoring creators of
exceptional media content in film, television and digital, and the Telly
Awards, honoring excellence in video and television across all screens.

The winning films were produced by FranklinCovey and film production
partner Kaleidoscope Pictures. The films are part of two of
FranklinCovey's new leadership development solutions: ‘Clayton
Christensen Signature: Find Out WHY – The Key to Successful Innovation
and ‘The
4 Essential Roles of Leadership
'™. Each of these solutions are
available through the FranklinCovey All Access Pass®.

best-in-class content. Passholders are able to assemble, integrate and

"We are so pleased to share these prestigious awards with Kaleidoscope
pictures, our long-standing, highly-valued partner," said Adam Merrill,
Executive Vice President, Innovations, FranklinCovey. "FranklinCovey has
accomplished a tremendous amount in content development this past year.
We have pushed this winning content to our All Access Pass passholders,
making it accessible on an unlimited basis so clients can return time
and again to reinforce the powerful principles in the films and complete
solutions. Passholders who have already experienced these films and the
respective solutions have found them to be compelling, relevant and
valuable to the development of their teams and leaders."

FranklinCovey's 29 awards consisted of: 16 Communicator Awards, three
CINE Finalist Awards and 10 Telly Awards. The films were recognized for
achievement in the categories of training, use of animation,
motivational, documentary, employee or consumer training and education,
editing, use of music, corporate image and biography.

FranklinCovey's leadership solution, ‘Clayton Christensen Signature:
Find Out WHYThe 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 Christensen, Taddy Hall, Karen Dillon
and David S. Duncan.

The solution guides participants through the process of innovation and
explores the theory of Jobs to Be Done. It explores what matters most to
customers, what products and services should be created that customers
will want to buy and why customers pull certain products and services
into their lives. Based on these factors, ‘Find Out WHY' provides a
framework to help leaders achieve greater innovation success.

Films from ‘Find Out WHY' garnered seven Communicator Awards of
Excellence and one Communicator Award of Distinction, three CINE
Finalist Awards and five Telly Awards; one gold, one silver and three

FranklinCovey's leadership solution, ‘The 4 Essential Roles of
Leadership', 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

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' earned five
Communicator Awards of Excellence and three Communicator Awards of
Distinction and five Telly Awards, three gold and two bronze.
