The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People For Managers (2–Day)


Transform Your Team for Breakthrough Results


Productivity surveys reveal common problems across the business world.  You're not alone. Recent national surveys* of thousands of employees disclosed that while many people work hard, there is a worrying lack of effectiveness.

Survey results indicate:

  1. Less than 50% of your team's time Is spent on the company's most important objectives
  2. Only 14% of employees feel they are contributing to company success
  3. Less than half of your team know company's goals

The problems are not limited to one industry, one geographic location, one economic group, or even one age group. They are common to all.

  • Workers have too many assigned tasks and too many competing priorities.
  • People can't identify key goals and, therefore, can't deliver excellent results.
  • Individuals, even entire departments, lack open communication.
  • Crises are often reacted to with fast, less-than-effective decisions.

The good news is that changing ineffective behaviors to effective behaviors will benefit everyone too.

Get acquainted with the terms and models unique to the 7 Habits®.

Empower team members to make their highest and best contribution.

Habit 1: Be Proactive

Recognize how choices based on personal experience or beliefs can profoundly impact your effectiveness both positively and negatively. Identify your hidden resources and use them to break through barriers to the results you want.

Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind

Develop a clear definition of what is and is not important to you and your organization. Shape your own future instead of leaving it to the outside influences of other people or circumstances.

Habit 3: Put First Things First

Gain a reputation for excellent follow-through and superior organizational skills by greatly increasing your ability to focus on your top priorities. Recognize that effectiveness requires the willingness to eliminate the unimportant.

Habit 4: Think Win-Win

Build a team that finds faster and better solutions through clear expectations, shared responsibilities, and an understanding of priorities. Easily share recognition and success without fear of diminished personal importance.

Habit 5: Seek First to Understand,
Then to Be Understood

Develop the ability to deeply understand any problem and give honest, accurate feedback that develops trust. Learn to listen for clarity while eliminating prejudices and the desire to prescribe.

Habit 6: Synergize

Value and celebrate differences and understand how they contribute to innovative and better solutions. Maximize opinions, perspectives, and backgrounds instead of feeling threatened by them.

Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
