The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People® Jump Start: Habits 4-7


Success in life is built on excellent relationships, and such relationships are conceived through effective communication and trust. Without the strength and assistance of reliable teams and a trustworthy network, effectiveness is diminished. Learning to collaborate with others should be a top priority for anyone who is interested in increasing their value in the business sphere. This may be taken as a stand alone session, or in conjunction with The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People® Jump Start: Habits 1–3.

“When you really listen to another person from their point of view, and reflect back to them that understanding, it's like giving them emotional oxygen.”
