The 7 Habits for Managers®

Enable your leaders and managers to lead teams

Are your managers effective 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 do the managing instead of teaching their people how to manage themselves against shared expectations.

The 7 Habits for Managers® Essential Skills and Tools for Leading Teams equips team leaders to address these basic issues and achieve sustainable results through and with others. This course distinctly focuses on who a manager IS, not just what they DO. Its uniqueness is the lens of the 7 Habits framework—and the way it applies new mindsets, skills, and tools towards becoming a great leader who can consistently deliver results.

Whether leaders have been in their roles for some time, are brand new, or are emerging leaders, this course will enable them to effectively lead and manage their teams.
