"Proactive 7 Habits" is a series of workshops based on Steven Covey's book "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People." Each seminar is distinct, yet all are defined around the seven habits via personal and communal themes.

  1. Be Proactive and Begin With the End in Mind

    • Individuals cannot control what happens to them, but they can decide how to independently respond. By forming a personal mission statement that embodies solid principles, you can form long-term and short-term goals or habits that have purpose and power.

    Put First Things First and Think Win-Win

    • Once someone articulates his personal mission, it becomes easier to say "yes" and "no" to things in their proper context. Consequently, life becomes less about the seemingly urgent and more about what is personally and mutually deemed most important.

    Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood

    • Instead of trying to get your point across, you have to first earn the credibility to be heard. Effective communication involves putting yourself in the shoes of another person so that you have a personal connection instead of pursuing a self-centered gain.

    Synergize and Sharpen the Saw

    • Making the most of the relationships in your life involves letting the strengths and differences complement each other. Momentum toward goals is built in this way, as is a provision of time for everyone to experience a season of personal restoration.
