THE 7 HABITS FOR MANAGERS®
Enable your leaders and managers to lead frontline teams.
Are your managers real leaders?
Many leaders and managers get promoted because of their individual competencies, but struggle when it comes to leading and managing people. When managers fail, it is usually because they were unable to achieve important results. That failure typically stems from two causes:
1. They manage others before managing themselves.
2. They manage people instead of letting them manage themselves against shared expectations.
“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply”
– DR. STEPHEN R. COVEY
Learn the habits—manage the outcome.
The 7 Habits for Managers is built on the framework of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Each Habit has been uniquely retooled to focus on managing oneself and leading others.
