CHALLENGE: Consider the price an organization pays when only half the people show initiative, fewer than half feel they can be candid about tough issues, and only a third possess individual work goals, plan their time, or contemplate how to improve their performance. Let’s face it. Individual strengths and personal effort drive effective organizations. Unfortunately, with common distractions, conflicting priorities, unclear objectives, poor communication, and lack of trust, it’s easy to burn out and lose focus.

The course also includes over 30 award-winning videos.

ABOUT THE COURSE: In The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Signature Edition 4.0, participants learn how to: take initiative, balance key priorities, improve interpersonal communication, leverage creative collaboration, and apply principles for achieving a balanced life. Participants not only learn, but also use processes and tools to live and apply the 7 Habits.
