Dr. Kenneth Kee/ Stephen R. Covey (2004), The 8 th Habit, From Effectiveness to Greatness. Mission statements and strategic priorities that are developed in a rush by those at the top and then announced are forgotten. Without involvement or strong identification, there will be no commitment.
Dr. Kenneth Kee/ FOUR ORGANIZATIONAL REALITIES: k Market realities - how do people in your organization or team perceive the marketplace? What is the larger political, economic & technological context? What are the competitive forces? What are the trends & characteristics of the industry? What about the possibility of disruptive technologies & disruptive business models that could make obsolete the entire industry or basic traditions? k Core Competencies - what are your strengths? k Stakeholders Wants & Needs – what do they really want & need? What are their issues, problems and concerns? What do their customers want & need? What is the market reality of the industry in which they operate? What possible technologies or business models could disrupt them or make them obsolete? What about the owners, those that have supplied the capital or paid the taxes – what are their wants & needs. What about the associates, the employees, your coworkers – what are their wants & needs? What about all the suppliers, distributors & dealers-the entire supply chain? k Values - What are these peoples values? What are your values? What is the central purpose of the organization? What is its central strategy in accomplishing that purpose? What are the values that are to serve as guidelines?

Dr. Kenneth Kee/ LEVELS OF INITIATIVE/SELF EMPOWERNMENT WAIT UNTIL TOLD ASK MAKE A RECOMMENDATION I INTEND TO DO DO IT AND REPORT IMMEDIATELY DO IT AND REPORT PERIODICALLY DO IT
Dr. Kenneth Kee/ SYSTEMS, STRUCTURES AND PROCESSES Covey (2004), People are the programmers and systems are the program, hence, people are ultimately responsible for those systems. Systems and structures are things, they are programs. They have no freedom to choose. So Leadership still comes from people. People design systems, and all organizations get the results they are designed and aligned to get. Systems, structures and processes must remain flexible so that they can adjust to those changing realities.
Dr. Kenneth Kee/ EFFECTIVENESS Covey (2004), Effectiveness is the balance between production of desired results (P) and production capability (PC). In other words, it is the golden eggs that people want and the golden goose that lays them. Sometimes, we call this the P/PC Balance. The essence of effectiveness is achieving the results that you want in a way that enables you to get even more of those results in the future.
Dr. Kenneth Kee/ WIN-WIN Covey (2004), In an organization, win-win means that there is an explicit overlapping of the needs of the organization (financial health, growth and development, synergistic relationships with stakeholders and meaning/contribution) with the 4 needs of the individual (physical – economic, mental – growth and development, social/emotional – relationships and spiritual – meaning and contribution).

Dr. Kenneth Kee/ CREATING A SCOREBOARD * The Current result (WHERE WE ARE NOW) * The Target result (WHERE WE NEED TO BE) * The Deadline (BY WHEN)
Dr. Kenneth Kee/ TRIAGE REPORTING Triage Reporting – everyone reports quickly on the vital few issues, leaving the less important issues for another time. The focus is on key results, major problems, & high- level issues. This doesnt mean that only urgent issues are discussed. It means that only important issues are discussed, even if some of these issues are not urgent. EFFECTIVE ACCOUNTABILITY SESSIONS TYPICAL STAFF MEETINGS (TRIAGE REPORTING) Quick reporting of vital few issues Death March around the room where people feel pressure to talk with everyone else checks out Review of scoreboard No measures of progress Follow-up No follow-up Mutual accountability Only manager holds people accountable People openly report struggles & failures People hide their struggles and failures Celebration of success Focusing only on problems

Dr. Kenneth Kee/ MANAGING PEOPLE AS THINGS Industrial Age Response to the 4 Chronic Problems BOSS Rules Control EFFICIENCY The leader knows best and makes all the important decisions Dont need to see the future; need only to do what is told and follow the rules Systems must be designed to get work done efficiently Workers cannot be trusted; without the carrot & stick not much good will happen Source: Stephen R.

Dr. Kenneth Kee/ PRINCIPLES EMBODIED IN THE 7 HABITS HABIT PRINCIPLE Ê BE PROACTIVE Responsibility/Initiative Ë BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND Vision/Values Ì PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST Integrity/Execution THINK WIN-WIN Mutual Respect/Benefit Î SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND, Mutual Understanding THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD » SYNERGIZE Creative Cooperation & Collaboration SHAPEN THE SAW Renewal
Dr. Kenneth Kee/ THE FIVE MAIN COMPONENTS OF EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE (EQ) 1.SELF-AWARENESS – Be proactive 2.PERSONAL MOTIVATION – Begin with the end in mind 3.SELF-REGULATION – Put first things first, Sharpen the saw. 4.EMPATHY – Seek first to understand, then to be understood. 5.SOCIAL SKILLS – Think win-win, Seek first to understand, then to be understood, Synergize.
Dr. Kenneth Kee/ THE FIVE MAIN COMPONENTS OF EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE (EQ) - CONTINUE 1.SELF-AWARENESS – our freedom to choose, is the heart of habit, be proactive. We are aware of the space between stimulus & response, we are aware of our genetic, biological inheritance, our upbringing, & of the environmental forces around us. 2.PERSONAL MOTIVATION – this is the basis of our choices, that is, we decide our highest priorities, goals & values. This is our most fundamental decision. 3.SELF-REGULATION – once we decide our priorities, we live by them. This is the habit of integrity, self-mastery, of doing what we intend to do & living by our values. 4.EMPATHY – this seek first to understand, then to be understood. It is learning to understand our own selves & getting into the heads & hearts of other people. It is becoming socially very sensitive & aware of the situation before attempting to be understood, influence others, or make decisions or judgments. 5.SOCIAL COMMUNICATION SKILLS – this is to think in terms of mutual benefit & mutual respect, to strive for mutual understanding in order to have creative cooperation.
Dr. Kenneth Kee/ DEVELOPING THE THREE MAIN COMPONENTS OF SPRITUAL INTELLIGENCE (SQ) 1.INTEGRITY – being true to ones highest values and conscience. 2.MEANING – a sense of contribution to people and causes. 3.VOICE – aligning work with ones unique calling and gifts.
Dr. Kenneth Kee/ DEVELOPING THE THREE MAIN COMPONENTS OF MENTAL INTELLIGENCE (IQ) 1.Continuous, Systematic, Disciplined Study & Education. 2.Cultivation of Self-Awareness – making assumptions explicit. 3.Learning by Teaching & Doing.
Dr. Kenneth Kee/ Covey (1990), in organization, people usually perform one of three essential roles: producer, manager, or leader. Each role is vital to the success of the organization…If there is no producer, great ideas, and high resolves are not carried out. The work simply doesnt get done. Where there is no manager, there is role conflict and ambiguity; everyone attempts to be a producer working independently, with few established systems or procedures. And if there is no leader, there is a lack of vision and direction. People begin to loose sight of their mission…Although each role is important to the organization, the role of the leader is the most important. Without strategic leadership, people may dutifully climb the ladder of success, but discover, upon reaching the top rung, that the ladder is leaning against the wrong wall. INSIGHT ON LEADERSHIP

Dr. Kenneth Kee/ I am your constant companion. I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden. I will push you onward and drag you down to failure. I am completely at your command. Half the things you do you might just as well turn over to me, and I will be able to do them quickly, correctly. I am easily managed – you must merely be firm with me. Show me exactly how you want something done, and after a few lessons I will do it automatically. I am the servant of all great people; and alas, of all failures as well. Those who are failures, I have made failures. I am not a machine, though I work with all the precision of a machine plus the intelligence of a human being. You may run me for a profit or turn me for ruin – it makes no difference to me. Take me, train me, be firm with me, and I will place the world at your feet. Be easy with me and I will destroy you. Who am I? I am HABIT - ANONYMOUS HABIT
