The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People


with Debra Schuler

Calendar Feb 2, 2021 at 8:30 am, runs for 6 weeks

The Proven Personal Leadership System Based on Timeless Principles of Effectiveness

Dates:  Tuesdays, 8:30am to 10:30am February 2 - March 9

Includes 7 Habits Online Course Kit! 

Based on Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, which after 30 years continues to be a best seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology and focuses on timeless principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity for personal effectiveness, leadership development and change.

Presented in six (6) two (2) hour sessions, this series explores how “living the 7 Habits” can help you lead your life in a truly effective way.  This proven process of personal and interpersonal growth begins with an introduction to the paradigms and principles of effectiveness. With this foundation in place, we will learn about the habits that lead to personal mastery: being proactive, beginning with the end in mind and putting first things first. Next, we transition to the habits that improve our interpersonal communications and relationships: thinking win-win, seeking first to understand and synergizing. The final habit, sharpening our saw, will illustrate the importance of making self-care a priority. Lastly, participants will identify the areas in their personal and professional lives that matter most and develop a plan for turning their ideas and good intentions into action.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People® MicroCredential Certificate

Participants must complete all sessions in order to be awarded a certificate of successful completion. Participants are surveyed anonymously in advance of the training so as to give instructors a better sense of the participant’s background and expectations. Participants are also surveyed at the end of the program to determine the program's impact and to allow for feedback in order to continuously improve the program. 

Session 1: Habit 1: Be Proactive  

So often, success is perceived by what we see on the surface, however true development of effectiveness comes from the inside-out and is more about character than personality. Our 7 Habits learning journey begins with proactively taking responsibility for your life. Proactive people recognize that they are "response-able." They don't blame genetics, circumstances or conditions for their behavior. They consciously choose their behavior.

Session 2:  Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind                                      People are working harder than ever, but because clarity and vision are often lacking, they are not getting very far in terms of overall fulfillment and happiness. Highly effective people make a conscious effort to visualize who they are and what they want in life. It's about reconnecting with your strengths and uniqueness and then defining the personal, moral, and ethical guidelines within which you can most happily express and fulfill yourself.

Session 3:  Habit 3 - Put First Things First  

To live a more balanced existence, you have to recognize that not doing everything that comes across your path is okay. There's no need to overextend yourself. Highly effective people realize that it's alright to say no sometimes in order to focus on their highest priorities. Putting first things first isn’t just about time management, it’s about life management. What are "first things?" Those things you personally find most valuable and meaningful.

Session 4:   Habit 4: Think Win-Win and Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood  

Thinking Win-Win isn't about being nice, nor is it a compromise. It is a character-based code for human interaction and collaboration. Most of us think about succeeding in terms of someone else failing--that is, if I win, you lose; or if you win, I lose. Highly effective people see life as a cooperative arena, not a competitive one. It’s a frame of mind and heart that constantly seeks mutual benefit which is also critical to understanding others.

Session 5:  Habit 5 Continued and Habit 6: Synergize  

Communication is the most important skill in life. We spend years learning how to read, write and speak, but what about listening? Most people seek first to be understood, to get their point across, and in doing so, may ignore the other person or selectively hear only certain parts of the conversation and miss the meaning entirely. Seeking first to understand is listening with the intent to understand, not to reply, which establishes mutual respect and opens the door to creative cooperation--the mindset that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

Session 6:  Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw and Key Take-Aways and Action Planning 

Sharpening the saw means preserving and enhancing the greatest asset you have--you. It means having a balanced program for self-renewal in the four key areas of your life: physical, social/emotional, mental, and spiritual. Renewing yourself in each of the four areas facilitates growth and change in your life and inspires you to practice the other six habits. You increase your capacity to produce and effectively handle challenges. We will conclude our session with individual reflection, sharing of key take-aways and action planning to set you up for successful ongoing application of learning and positive results in the most important areas of your life.

Front Line Manager's Microcredential Certificate


with Nick Manolis

Calendar Apr 6, 2021 at 1 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Being a frontline manager is hard. Meeting organizational demands in an efficient and effective way can be challenging, frustrating and seemingly never ending. In order to succeed, the frontline manager must not only have the technical skills to do the job, but the people skills needed to cultivate and maintain a culture where employees are recognized as the organization’s most important asset and consistently treated that way.

Presented in six (6) three (3) hour sessions, this series explores what it takes for a frontline manager to become a frontline leader. The journey taken in this series begins with self- awareness, travels through making the break from the line to manager, makes stops to consider the success steps needed to supervise well and arrives with the transition of the manager to leader.

Throughout the entire series the focus will be on the soft skills all managers need. The series is accentuated by active participation of attendees, readings and exercises. Attendees will leave this series not only with the information needed to manage people well, but with the encouragement to do so.

Participants must complete all sessions in order to be awarded a certificate of successful completion. Participants are surveyed anonymously in advance of the training so as to give instructors a better sense of the participant’s background and expectations. Participants are also surveyed at the end of the program to determine the programs impact and to allow for feedback in order to continuously improve the program.

Topics include:

  • The Importance of Human Factors
  • Making the Break from Line to Manager
  • Supervisory Success
  • Ethics, Courtesy, Civility, & Respect
  • The Leadership Perspective
