ETSU to hold ‘7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ Workshop

East Tennessee State University’s Office of Professional Development will hold a “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” Workshop over the course of three sessions this fall.

The workshop will be taught by Dr. Deborah Harley, a veteran instructor of this and various other leadership-based courses. Harley is an assistant professor in the Claudius G. Clemmer College of Education’s Department of Curriculum and Instruction.

Based on the work of Dr. Stephen Covey, the “7 Habits” Workshop is centered on the concept that no organization can truly succeed until individuals within it succeed. Participants can expect to be a part of a learning experience that will strengthen interpersonal relationships; increase focus on organizational priorities; improve effective listening and the identification of student/customer needs; create stronger teams and increase collaboration; and improve individual work/life balance and energy management.

This internationally recognized personal leadership curriculum offers the foundations of the “7 Habits” and how to apply them to both work and personal initiatives, in addition to ways to develop a game plan for individual change that really works.

The “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” Workshop will be held in room 411 of Warf-Pickle Hall in three sessions. These sessions will take place from 12:30-4:30 p.m. on Fridays, Oct. 18 and Oct. 25 and Nov. 1.

The cost of the program is $800, which includes all workshop costs, materials and refreshments during each session. ETSU employees may use their employee audit opportunity to pay for the course.
