A 7 Habits® Course for Life

Developing life-readiness skills prepares you to lead your own life and face difficult challenges.

Everyone is a leader, including you. But not everyone is an effective leader. Effective leaders do things in ways that yield lasting positive results and live by timeless, universal principles. Principles provide constancy amidst change; each of the 7 Habits is based on principles of effectiveness that will guide you through life’s greatest challenges.

Paradigms: The Key To Change

A paradigm is your point of view, belief, or mental map. If you want to change a habit, change a paradigm.

Now and then, experiences in your life will cause your paradigms to shift. Some Paradigm Shifts are small and barely noticeable; others are large and cause us to change significantly. Each of the 7 Habits is based on paradigms of effectiveness. Improving your ability to live the 7 Habits will help you navigate important Paradigm Shifts.

“Paradigms are like glasses. When you have incomplete paradigms about yourself or life in general, it’s like wearing glasses with the wrong prescription. That lens affects how you see everything else.” – Sean Covey, Author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Every so often a book comes along that not only alters the lives of readers but leaves an imprint on the culture itself. The 7 Habits is one of those books. For a quarter century it has taught millions how to work smarter and live better.

– Daniel Pink, Author of Drive and To Sell is Human
