Effective Managers and Leaders build habits that lead to their success. Stephen Covey, in his book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, outlines seven habits that effective people follow:

  1. Be Proactive
  2. Begin with the End in Mind
  3. Put First Things First
  4. Think Win-Win
  5. Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood
  6. Synergize
  7. Sharpen the Saw

I work with many great Leaders and Managers and I see these habits in all of them. I can’t recommend these habits enough. When applied correctly, these habits will lead to success. Learn them, practice them, live them.
