The 7 Habits of Highly
Effective People
The Principles established in Stephen
R. Covey’s book are supposed to help a
person achieve true interdependent
"effectiveness". Covey argues this is
achieved by aligning oneself to what he
calls "true north"—principles of a
character ethic that, unlike values, he
believes to be universal and timeless.
The book presents the principles in
four sections.
Submitted by Alison
Begley,
University of
Cincinnati
• Paradigms and Principles. Here, Covey
introduces the basic foundation for the
creation of the habits.
• Private Victory. Here, Covey introduces the
first three habits intended to take a person
from dependence to independence, or one's
ability to be self-reliant. You must be able to
win your private victories before you can start
on your public victories. If you start to win
your public victories first, how can you feel
good about yourself and still work on habits...
• Public Victory. Here, Covey introduces
habits four through six which are intended
to lead to interdependence, the ability to
align one's needs and desires with those
of other people and create effective
relationships.
• Renewal. Here, Covey introduces the final
habit which directs the reader to begin a
process of self-improvement.
Principles of Personal Vision
The word proactive means that we are
responsible for our own lives. Our
behavior is a function of our decisions,
not our conditions. We can subordinate
feelings to values. We have the initiative
and the responsibility to make things
happen.
Be Proactive
Highly proactive people
• Highly proactive people recognize that
responsibility. The do not blame
circumstances, conditions, or social
conditioning for their behavior. Their
behavior is a product of their own conscious
choice, based on values, rather than a
product of their conditions, based on
feeling. Proactive people are still influenced
by external stimuli but their response,
conscious or unconscious, is a value based
choice or response.
Principles of Personal Leadership
Begin today with the image, picture, or paradigm of the end of
your life as your frame of reference of the criterion by which
everything else is examined. Each part of your life—today’s
behavior, tomorrow’s behavior, next week’s behavior, next
month’s behavior—can be examined in the context of the
whole, of what really matters most to you
Begin with the end in mind
By keeping that end clearly
• By keeping that end clearly in mind, you can make
certain that whatever you do on any particular day
does not violate the criteria you have defined as
supremely important, and that each day of your life
contributes in a meaningful way to the vision you
have of your life as a whole. To begin with the end
in mind means to start with a clear understanding of
your destination. It means to know where you’re
going so that you better understand where you are
now and so that the steps you take are always in
the right direction.
Principles of Personal Management
Habit 1 says that you are the programmer. Habit
2 says to write the program. Habit 3 says to run
the program. Living it is primarily a function of
our independent will, our self-discipline, our
integrity, and commitment—not to short-term
goals and schedules or to the impulse of the
moment, but to the correct principles and our
own deepest values, which give meaning and
context to our goals, our schedules, and our
lives. Organize and execute around priorities.
Put First Things First
Principles of Interpersonal Leadership
Win/Win is a frame of mind and heart that constantly seeks
mutual benefit in all human interactions. Win/Win means
that agreements or solutions are mutually beneficial,
mutually satisfying. With a Win/Win solution all parties feel
good about the decision and feel committed to the action
plan. Win/Win is a belief in a Third Alternative. It’s not
your way or my way; it’s a better way. And if a solution can’t
be found to benefit both parties they agree to disagree
agreeably—No Deal. Anything less than Win/Win in and
interdependent reality is a poor second best that will have
impact in the long-term relationship. The cost of that
impact needs to be carefully considered. If you can’t reach a
true Win/Win, you’re very often better off to go for No Deal.
Think Win/Win
Seek First to
Understand,
Then to Be
Understood
Principles of Empathic Communication
Listening with the intent to understand is called
empathic listening. Empathic listening gets inside
another person’s frame of reference. You look out
through it, you see the world the way they see the
world, you understand their paradigm, you
understand how they feel. Empathy is not
sympathy. Empathic listening involves much
more than registering, reflecting, or even
understanding the words that are said. You aren’t
just listening with your ears, but also with you eyes
and your heart.
Empathic listening
Empathic listening is so powerful because it
gives you accurate data to work with. When
you present your own ideas be clear, specific,
visual, and most important, contextual—in the
context of a deep understanding of the other
person’s paradigms and concerns. You will
significantly increase the credibility of your
ideas. What you’re presenting may even be
different form what you had originally thought
because in you effort to understand, you
learned.
Principles of Creative Cooperation
Synergy is the essence of principle-centered
leadership. It catalyzes, unifies, and
unleashes the greatest power within people.
Simply defined, it meant that the whole is
greater than the sum of its parts. Without
doubt, you have to leave the comfort zone of
base camp and confront an entirely new and
unknown wilderness
Synergize
You become a trailblazer
• You become a trailblazer, a pathfinder.
You open new possibilities, new territories,
new continents, so that others can follow.
The essence of synergy is to value
differences—to respect them, to build on
strengths, to compensate for weaknesses.
Principles of Balanced Self-
Renewal
Habit 7 is preserving and
enhancing the greatest asset
you have—you. It’s renewing
the four dimensions of your
nature—physical, spiritual,
mental, and social/emotional.
Express all 4 motivations.
Exercise all four dimensions
of our nature regularly and
consistently in wise and
balanced ways.
Exercise,
nutrition,
stress

Service,

friend
Physical
Social
Spiritual
Mental
Sharpen the Saw
This is the single most powerful investment we
can ever make in life—the investment in ourselves.
We are the instruments of our own performance,
we need to recognize the importance of taking
time to regularly sharpen the saw in all four ways.
