Covey – Associates: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Successful organisations and teams depend on personal performance at all levels, including your non-managerial, administrative and staff-level employees.

  • Be Proactive®
  • Begin With the End in Mind®
  • Put First Things First®

  • Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood®
  • Synergise®
