This course is based on the book Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, regarded as one of the most influential management books ever published. As a dominant thinker in US academia, Dr. Stephen Covey was nominated as one of 25 most influential figures and was granted an audience with former US President Obama. He was also one of former President Clinton's advisers and was hailed as one of the most forward-thinking management thinkers by The Economist.
Renowned as the world's premier personal leadership development solution, the new 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Signature Edition 4.0 aligns timeless principles of effectiveness with modern technology and practices.
The first three of Covey's habits focus on building self-mastery through Being Proactive, Beginning with the End in Mind, and Putting First Things First. The next three habits focus on building healthy relations with other people: Think Win-Win; Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood, and Synergize. The final habit, Sharpen the saw, is about continuous improvement.
"The most memorable habit for me is Habit 7 – Sharpen the Saw," says Alan Beebe, President of AmCham China. "I think it is good practice to ensure continuous development for a successful career and life more generally."
No matter how competent a person is, he or she will not have sustained and lasting success unless they are able to 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 organizational effectiveness.
Why you need this training: You will become familiar with the most important theories in modern management and how to apply them to your work in China. By better understanding yourself and those around you, you will become a more effective and inspiring leader.
If you are a director, manager, supervisor, or general staff who wishes to improve their influence and leadership, this course is for you.
