The 7 good habits of people in great organizations

Think about an organization where every single employee…

  1. ARE PROACTIVE
    take initiative and make things happen – rather than complain and mourn.
  2. BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND
    have a purpose, a vision for their lives and steers by this vision in their everyday activities.
  3. PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST
    believes that they are the creative force of their own lives and knows what is important to them and acts based on these priorities.
  4. THINK WIN-WIN
    knows that there is enough for everybody and look for solutions together by being careful and brave.
  5. SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND, THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD
    give each other psychological air, do not judge others and thus create an aura of trust.
  6. SYNERGIZE
    involve others in their difficult decisions and firmly believe that
    1 + 1 = 4
  7. SHARPEN THE SAW
    use 7 hours each week on sharpening their skills, and the remaining 161 hours to live in the four dimensions of life (physical, mental, social and spiritual) and increase depth and quality of life.

Think about the value creation we would have if these habits were integrated in your organization?
