  • We will transition from a brief introduction of the 7 habits into a discussion of the of principles that are influenced 8 th Habit. 7 habits-Build bank accounts. Building account starts with trust up the ladder and down. Employment is a “mutually beneficial agreement”! Measuring success. Four quadrants. Finding significance- each employee strives to find significance from the janitor to the dean. Finding Voice- Allowing each person to “find their voice” is critical.
  • Are concepts established by Stephen Covey and are the basis of a book published in the late 1980’s. I have been using these habits since the early 1990’s, successfully.
  • Be proactive. Not busy! Continuously move towards quadrant II (to be explained). Begin with the end in mind and move towards it using sound principles and ethics. Create a mission statement that incorporates personal and corporate values. Values that are inclusive and are established and practiced from the top down and from the bottom up will ensure mission success. A failure in trust at any level destroys the bank account. Integrity is key to execution. Seek to understand first. Once you understand apply the vision and values fairly. Think win/win. Sometimes fairly does not always mean evenly. Understand that people want input and significance. Synergize. Get buy in of values and the mission. Create cooperation and empower. Sharpen all of the first six. Create whole person values. Move yourself into Quadrant II first. Lead by example and then mentor.
  • 1.Be in quadrant II. Don’t put out fires prevent them. 2. Take time to eat an ice cream with your daughter. 3. Avoid busy work, time waster, the internet at work-In). 4. Avoid quadrant I. If needed put out the fire, fix the source of it , and move into II.
  • The result are self evident.
  • An old paradigm but applicable to focus and execution. These Rules still apply even in the Seven Habits and an era of soft skills”. How one gets to the triangle takes good management. If these basics are met the seven habits, Deming's principals, and Fayol’s laws become even more powerful tools. Maintaining basic levels of these yourself will instill trust, respect, and synergy in others. Success. Attitude- A word thrown around usually by RA RA guys without substance. Attitude comes from the certainty that your boss knows your needs, period. We will discuss whole employees shortly. The company needs are usually fairly clear, exempt are situations where alighnment does not exist (every man for himself). Establish clear goals and the methods by which the goals are evaluated. Establish consistent periodic reviews. Attendance, at work in meetings, company events, etc… Attendance does not mean that one is present.
  • Build from the bottom up. Lead by example. Avoid time wasters. Reinforce successful goals. If a goals is not met make sure it was achievable. If achievable build a bank account, retrain, mentor, teach time management, slides 7-10. Honestly address the unmet goal and synergize to achieve it the next time.
  • A tool for all. Be proactive. Don’t intend to do anything. Encourage employees to write a mission statement, a to-do list, and execute. Develop employees up the arrow. Teach employees at the do it paradigm to mentor.
  • Demand goes down during the cycle moving the group into quadrant II. Trouble spots represented as red, yellow and green also move towards quadrant II. This creates (RT), rest time, relaxation time, retraining time, and robustness time. The areas around the X are opportunities to improve efficiency and move the group towards the top of the triangle of the next cycle. It is also an area the be used as a rewards area. This tool and paradigm motivates a team continuously towards the end as long as RT exists. If RT does not exist teams will migrate the hypotenuse of the triangle towards the F line thus evening out the cycle and work load. The F line is where the demand does not move down during the cycle. The work levels and creates a paradigm where there is no room to develop quadrant II. Problems normally handled easily become red and fall inside the triangle impacting the cycle.
  • Are concepts established by Stephen Covey and are the basis of a book published in the late 1980’s. I have been using these habits since the early 1990’s, successfully.
  • The roles are divided into four segments. The roles are a function that develops Focus and Execution throughout the organization, department, etc… Empowering blends the skills needed to create Modeling, Pathfinding, and Aligning.
  • These are the results of successful implementation of the values and methods of the four roles. Sharpen the saw
  • 1.These are the hierarchy levels that will be developed using the four roles of leadership and other 7 habit and 8 th habit. Independent of position everyone should sharpen the saw and evaluate what level one is at and sharpen the saw.
  • Are concepts established by Stephen Covey and are the basis of a book published in the late 1980’s. I have been using these habits since the early 1990’s, successfully.
  • Integrity (trust) is the most important value an employee wants from their manager, supervisor. An employee would rather be told of their short comings honestly and openly. As a manager you can develop an employee to improve weak areas and encourage strengths. Let employees know you want to develop them (communication, people focused, motivator, trust). Make decisions based on truth and integrity. Be courageous. “ I would rather ask for forgiveness, thank ask for permission”.
  • The Golden Rule. This creates “synergy”, loyalty, and trust.
  • Voice is what all people want. Significance is what people desire and feel.. This in the presenters opinion based on 30 years experience is the most important concept of the 8 th Habit.
  • The sweet spot. A different triangle focused on developing soft skills that have their foundation in sound principals and concrete rules.
  • Are concepts established by Stephen Covey and are the basis of a book published in the late 1980’s. I have been using these habits since the early 1990’s, successfully.

  • 1. Establish goals and objective. Make sure they are real, achievable, and are driven by the “owner” with management support and influential leadership that aligns and empowers. 2 Establish a merit reward based on department success and contribution (measurable). Ensure the base line merit raise is significanant to satisfy people or get rid of them. Establish a bonus program that rewards company success. While many of Deming’s principals are sound and interesting some may create apathy.

    21. 23.

Instead, improve the process and build quality into the product in the first place. </li></ul><ul><li>End the practice of awarding business on the basis of price tag alone. Instead, minimize total cost in the long run. Move toward a single supplier for any one item, based on a long-term relationship of loyalty and trust. </li></ul><ul><li>Improve constantly, and forever, the system of production, service, planning, of any activity. This will improve quality and productivity and thus constantly decrease costs. </li></ul><ul><li>Institute training for skills. </li></ul><ul><li>Adopt and institute leadership for the management of people, recognizing their different abilities, capabilities, and aspiration.

    22. 24. Deming <ul><li>Drive out fear and build trust so that everyone can work more effectively. </li></ul><ul><li>Break down barriers between departments. Abolish competition and build a win-win system of cooperation within the organization. People in research, design, sales, and production must work as a team to foresee problems of production and use that might be encountered with the product or service. </li></ul><ul><li>Eliminate slogans, exhortations, and targets asking for zero defects or new levels of productivity. Such exhortations only create adversarial relationships, as the bulk of the causes of low quality and low productivity belong to the system and thus lie beyond the power of the work force. </li></ul><ul><li>Eliminate numerical goals, numerical quotas and management by objectives. Substitute leadership 1 . </li></ul><ul><li>Remove barriers that rob people of joy in their work. This will mean abolishing the annual rating or merit system that ranks people and creates competition and conflict 2 . </li></ul><ul><li>Institute a vigorous program of education and self-improvement. </li></ul><ul><li>Put everybody in the company to work to accomplish the transformation. The transformation is everybody's job. </li></ul>
