The 7 Habits for Managers®

Essential Skills and Tools for Leading Teams

Strategic Leadership
14 hours of training

Enable your leaders and managers to lead frontline teams.    


Are your managers real leaders?

Many leaders and managers get promoted because of their individual competencies, but struggle when it comes to leading and managing people. When managers fail, it is usually because they were unable to achieve important results. That failure typically stems from two causes:


1. They manage others before managing themselves.


2. They manage people instead of letting them manage themselves against shared expectations.

“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.” – Dr. Stephen R. Covey

The Solution

Learn the habits—manage the outcome.

The 7 Habits for Managers is built on the framework of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Each Habit has been uniquely retooled to focus on managing oneself and leading others.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Achieve extraordinary results by consistently executing their R & I (resourcefulness and initiative) to break through barriers.

Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind®

Develop an outcome-oriented mindset in every activity they engage in—projects, meetings, presentations, contributions, etc.

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.

Lead teams that are motivated to perform superbly through a shared expectation and accountability process.

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.

Demonstrate innovative problem-solving skills by seeking out differences and new and better alternatives.

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

Management leads with the tools and insights that enable shared outcomes where everyone succeeds.
