The release of the new work session marks 25 years of Franklin Covey helping thousands of organizations and millions of people around the world to improve their effectiveness, as they have learned, applied and lived the 7 Habits, both personally and professionally. “The 7 Habits work session can be the foundation for transforming any culture into a ‘winning culture,’” said Bob Whitman, CEO, Franklin Covey Co. “Culture is an organization’s most powerful, competitive advantage. But, winning cultures don’t happen by accident. They are intentionally created by leaders who engage their employees’ hearts, minds and talents around the organization’s values and priorities, and do so in a way that allows them to achieve even better results in the future. With the 7 Habits as the framework and ‘the operating system,’ people at every level in any organization can learn to lead themselves and work more effectively with others to achieve critical objectives. Institutionalizing the 7 Habits can have a tremendous effect on the results organizations achieve, every day.” The 7 Habits work session is based on content from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, authored by Stephen Covey, which is considered one of the most profound and impactful books ever written on personal effectiveness, leadership development and change. This year marks the 25^th anniversary of the publishing of The 7 Habits book, which has sold more than 25 million copies in 52 languages worldwide. What differentiates The 7 Habits from other leadership work sessions is its unique, proprietary content, which has global appeal, and is an inside-out approach to leadership development. The principles taught in the work session are universal, timeless, cross-cultural and have been widely accepted, as such. The work session was specifically designed to not only help participants learn the 7 Habits, but to use the processes and tools so they actually live the 7 Habits on a daily basis, becoming more effective leaders. “The 7 Habits work session aligns timeless principles of effectiveness with modern technology and practices,” said Catherine Nelson, Vice President, Leadership and Customer Loyalty Practices, Franklin Covey. “Regardless of their individual competence, employees will not have sustained and lasting success unless they are able to effectively lead themselves, and influence, engage and collaborate with others, as well as continuously improve and renew their capabilities. These elements are at the heart of individual, team and organizational effectiveness.” The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Signature Edition 4.0 Work Session More relevant than ever, The 7 Habits work session contains the proven 7 Habits personal leadership operating system. It develops leadership effectiveness at three levels: Individual: Develops increased maturity, greater productivity and the ability to manage one’s self, as well as the ability to execute critical priorities with laser-like focus and careful planning. Team: Increases team engagement, morale, collaboration, improved communication skills, and strengthened relationships. Organizational: Creates a framework for creating a highly effective culture, as well as developing current and high-potential leaders that model both competence and character.
