1 THE 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE TEENS Sean Covey

2 The 7 Habits Crash Course  On the next slide is a chart with numbers from 1 to 54. Your challenge is to find each number on the chart, starting at 1, then 2, then 3 and so on, all the way to 54. Take 90 seconds and see how many numbers you can find. There are no missing numbers or tricks.  Are you ready?

3

4 Paradigm Shift  On the next slide is the same chart you did before; however, this time I’ve divided up the box into nine equal squares. To find the numbers, just follow the pattern below

6 A Framework  A paradigm is your perception, point of view, or the way you see the world.  A paradigm shift is when your point of view is changed by new beliefs, knowledge or information.  A principle is a natural law that is timeless, universal and self-evident.  Gravity  Honesty, hard work, respect, service, focus, patience etc.

7 The 7 Habits  Each of the 7 Habits is based on timeless principles  Be proactive  Begin with the end in mind  Put first things first  Think win-win  Seek first to understand, then to be understood  Synergize  Sharpen the saw

8 Habit 1: Be proactive  Take responsibility for your life  You can choose  Reactive people allow other things & people to control them  Proactive people choose to remain in their own experience separate from circumstances or other people

9 Habit 2: Begin with the end in mind  If we aren’t clear about our end in mind, we’ll wander, waste time, and get lost.  Write a personal mission statement, or set of goals.

10 Habit 3: Put first things first  Important: Your most important things; stuff that really matters  Urgent: Things that are in your face and demand your immediate attention

11 Habit 3: Put first things first

12 Habit 4: Think win-win  An attitude toward life that believes everyone can win  Win-Lose: Stepping on other people  Lose-Win: Being the doormat  Life is not a competition

13 Habit 5:Seek first to understand, then to be understood  The most important communication skill you can ever learn is how to listen.  Listening is actively trying to understand another human being  Healthy relationships are built on a foundation of good listening and withholding judgment.

14 Habit 6: Synergize  Synergy: when two or more people work together to create something better than either could do alone.  Each individual brings different strengths to the team and together they are stronger than any one person alone.  No one is better or worse than anyone else, just different.

15 Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw  Take time to renew yourself  We are made up of heart, body, mind, and soul. Each part needs time and attention.

16 Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw Body: The Physical Dimension  Exercise  Eat healthy  Sleep well  Relax

17 Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw Mind: The Mental Dimension  Read  Educate  Write  Learn new skills

18 Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw Heart: The Emotional Dimension  Build relationships  Give service  Laugh

19 Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw Soul: The Spiritual Dimension  Meditate/Pray  Keep a journal  Take in quality media

20 Closure  On your own paper respond to the following:  Which, if any, of the “7 Habits” is already a habit in your life and how have you recently expressed it?  Which of the “7 Habits” seems it would be the most difficult to build and why?  What is one thing you can do this week to encourage the development of that difficult habit?
