The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People programme is a transformational and enjoyable learning experience that will help you be the best that you can be.

This 2 day programme, based on proven principles of personal effectiveness, is facilitated in an interactive workshop format and is offered to both individuals and teams.

Recognising that effective and sustainable change starts from within, the programme takes an ‘inside-out’ approach to personal and professional development.

No matter how competent a person is, he or she will not sustain success unless they can effectively lead themselves, influence, engage and collaborate with others and continually improve and renew their capabilities. These elements are at the heart of personal, team and organisational effectiveness.

Benefits to you

The programme will help you to apply timeless principles of effectiveness to:

  • take initiative
  • improve interpersonal communication
  • establish greater trust
  • strengthen relationships
  • increase influence
  • balance key priorities

On day 1 of the programme, we will explore the habits that focus on you as an individual. These include being proactive, putting first things first and beginning with the end in mind.

This is the most organised and well planned study days that I have ever attended. Exceptional. Thank you so much

On day 2 you will learn how mastering the private victory of the first three habits sets you up to achieve the public victory of improving effectiveness through interdependence with others. By adopting a win-win mentality, seeking to understand and leveraging different perspectives through synergy, you will improve your influence and trust with those around you.

Finally, you will learn how to continually seek opportunities to ‘sharpen the saw’ and renew yourself on a daily basis.

Learning and self-awareness
