Are you a Highly Effective Person?

2 years ago
(From Stephen Covey's "7 Habits of Highly Effective People").

Which of the following habits do you recognize in your own everyday behaviour? What examples, from your own behaviours or from the behaviours you observe in people whom you admire (alive or dead; famous or known only to you), can you come up with for each of the following Seven Habits?

Which two or three Habits are, in your opinion, the most important ones? (For me, if i had to prioritize, Habits 7 and 5 are the most crucial ones which make the greatest, most perceptible difference between success and failure in the specific area of teaching communication skills).

1. Be proactive

2. Begin with the end in mind

3. Put first things first

4. Think win/win

5. Seek first to understand, then to be understood

6. Synergize

7. Sharpen the saw
