THE 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY
EFFECTIVE PEOPLE
- Steven Covey
1. Be proactive
Proactive people are those who focus efforts
on things which they can do something about
Proactive people are Responsible for
themselves
Proactive people Recognize their
responsibility to Make Things Happen
Proactive people not only Acknowledge their
Mistakes, but also Learn from it
2. Begin with an end in mind
Leadership is about Effectiveness: the Vision
of what is to be Accomplished
It calls for Direction,Purpose,Sensitivity
Management is about Efficiency: how Best to
accomplish the Vision
It depends on Control,Guidance,Rules
To have a solid Foundation: Clearly Establish
Own Principles, in form of a Personal Mission
3. Put first things first

1.
2.
3.
4.

Important thing is not managing Time,
but managing Oneself, focusing on
Results rather than Methods
4 types of activities:
Urgent & Important
Not urgent but Important (Essentially)
Urgent but not Important
Not Urgent & Not Important
4. Think win/win
Interdependence occurs when there is
Co-operation, not Competition
Scarcity Mentality-only a finite cake is to
be shared, restricts ability to share
recognition,credit,power or profit
Sometimes, it is necessary to walk
away if the other party is interested only
in a win/lose situation. This is “WinWin”.
5. Seek first to understand, then
to be understood

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

Most people want to make their point first, or are so
busy looking for opportunities that they fail to hear
& understand the other party
Different levels of Listening:
Hearing but ignoring
Pretending to listen
Selective listening(hear only what u want to hear)
Attentive listening without evaluation(lecture notes)
Empathic listening(with intent to understand)
6. Synergize
Where two parties with different agenda
value each other’s differences
Eg. Both sides of brain working in
tandem on a situation/problem: the
intuitive, creative right side and the
analytical, logical left side
7. Sharpen the saw
In doing a task, we generally become so engrossed,
we tend to neglect the basic tools
Correct principles are like compasses: they always
point the way
Personality involves learning a new skill, character
involves changing habits
Principle-centered leaders are men/women of
character who work with competence.They build
principles into center of their lives, communications,
management processes and their Mission
statements.
