The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Paradigms are powerful because they create the lens through which we see the world... If you want small changes in your life, work on your attitude. But if you want big and primary changes, work on your paradigm. Dr. Stephen R. Covey

“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”

  1. Habit 1: Be Proactive®

    Achieve extraordinary results by consistently executing their R & I (resourcefulness and initiative) to break through barriers.
  2. Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind®

    Develop an outcome-oriented mindset in every activity they engage in—projects, meetings, presentations, contributions, etc.
  3. Habit 3: Put First Things First®

    Eliminate energy and time-wasting tendencies by focusing and executing on the team’s wildly important goals with a weekly planning cadence.
  4. Habit 4: Think Win-Win®

    Lead teams that are motivated to perform superbly through a shared expectation and accountability process.
  5. Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood®

    Create an atmosphere of helpful give-and-take by taking the time to fully understand issues, and give candid and accurate feedback.
  6. Habit 6: Synergize®

    Demonstrate innovative problem-solving skills by seeking out differences and new and better alternatives.
  7. Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw®

    Tap into the highest and best contribution of everyone on a team by unlocking the total strength, passion, capability, and spirit of each individual.
