Your habits determine your destiny.
The 7 Habits is the world’s most influential and enduring framework for personal and professional effectiveness.
The 7 Habits has transformed the lives of presidents and CEOs, educators and parents—millions of people of all ages and occupations. Today, the 7 Habits is more relevant than ever and is refreshed in the 30th anniversary for a new generation of leaders. The principles outlined in the 7 Habits are deeply rooted in the character ethic of personal development and is founded on three stages of maturity: Dependence, Independence, and Interdependence. During this course you will not only learn foundational principles of personal improvement, but also gain a deeper appreciation for true collaboration and synergy with others.
“Deep within each of us is an inner longing to live a life of greatness and contribution – to really matter, to really make a difference. We can consciously decide to leave behind a life of mediocrity and to life a life of greatness – at home, at work, and in the community.”
“Show me someone who is humble enough to accept and take responsibility for his or her circumstances and courageous enough to take whatever initiative is necessary to creatively work his or her way through or around these challenges, and I’ll show you the supreme power of choice.”
“Treat a man as he is and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he can and should be and he will become as he can and should be.”
“Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships.”
“To change ourselves effectively, we first had to change our perceptions.”
“We see the world, not as it is, but as we are or, as we are conditioned to see it.”
“You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage—pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically, to say “no” to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger “yes” burning inside. The enemy of the “best” is often the “good.”
“Habit is the intersection of knowledge (what to do), skill (how to do), and desire (want to do).”
