Hopefully, by now, you’ve thought about how Stephen Covey‘s “8 Habits of Highly Effective People,” can impact your career, as well as personal life. Maybe, they can improve how you approach situations and manage those circumstances, for better outcomes.
The “habits” that he uncovered were from 25 years ago. I can’t imagine that much has changed since then. Certainly, the speed of technology in this information age has improved a lot, but human behavior in the workplace…not so much.
Covey’s “Habits” were the common traits he found from interviewing CEOs at many of the nation’s largest companies. His research and findings are important to us as leaders, marketers, and job seekers.
#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
#7 SHARPEN THE SAW
#8 FIND YOUR VOICE AND HELP OTHERS TO FIND THEIRS
When looking at the list, what keywords or concepts do you take away? For me: Anticipate, Plan, Strategize, Cooperate, Contemplate, Deliberate, Collaborate, Educate, Share.
