The 7 Habit of Highly Effective People - The Solution to Your People Problem
“How you treat the one reveals how you regard the many because everyone is ultimately a one.” ― Stephen R. Covey,
How would you feel if others were to go the extra mile to understand you before you have gone the extra mile to understand them?
Would that not entice you to go the extra mile to understand them?
Wouldn't that inspire you to think win-win—not win-lose?
I believe it would.
And I suspect that you would explore ways to bring out the best in others if others did what they could to first bring out the best in you.
If you would, then you would also be willing to embrace the lessons in Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. In so doing, you’d be contributing to the creation of a kinder and gentler society.
That means, your home would become more harmonious, your workplace culture would become more positive, your places of worship would become more inspiring, and your children's schools would become more conducive to learning and growing.
Yes, applying the lessons from the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People can help you react less and respond more.
What’s more, it’s all within your power.
