Habits 1, 2 & 3

Workshop 1: Be Proactive, Begin with the End in Mind and Put First Things First

In order to be effective one must be proactive, which means being awake to our thinking, feeling and what we do. We practice strengthening our self awareness and using our imagination to develop a vision of what we want to become. To be effective we need to act according to our values rather than our desires or impulses at any given moment.  We must have the discipline to prioritize our day-to-day actions based on what is most important, not what is most urgent.

Habits 4, 5 & 6

Workshop 2: Think Win-Win and Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood and Synergize

To establish healthy, thus effective interdependent relationships, we must commit to creating Win-Win situations that are mutually beneficial and satisfying to each party. First listen, then speak. Before offering advice, suggesting solutions, or effectively interacting with another person we must seek to deeply understand them and their perspective through empathic listening. By understanding and valuing the differences in another person’s perspective, we have the opportunity to create synergy, which allows us to uncover new possibilities through openness and creativity.

Habit 7

Workshop 4: Sharpen the Saw

By devoting the time to renewing ourselves physically, spiritually, mentally, and socially we renew ourselves, allowing us to synergistically increase our ability to practice each habit.
