Good habits are required to manage oneself and to take ownership over emotions, actions and decisions. You are in complete control of your calendar and your physical and emotional reaction to external stimuli. In this session students will review the personal leadership theories from two of Covey’s Seven Habits. Through discussion and reflection on being proactive and putting first things first, students will be guided to the understanding that their effectiveness as a person and a leader really is up to them.
By the end of this session, students will be able to:
Take ownership of their actions, decisions, and emotions
Understand methods to be more proactive and in control
Effectively manage their time and schedule their priorities
Articulate what it takes to be extraordinarily effective
