The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People


 The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, the work of Dr. Stephen Covey, are universal and timeless habits of effectiveness. At Rondo School of Discovery we believe that all children are leaders because they must first lead themselves, and we teach them how to do that with the 7 Habits. After all, why should you wait until you're an adult to learn the habits of effectiveness? Below are the 7 Habits, each with various highly effective practices. I encourage you and your family to use this language in your home as we work together to empower our students to be the leaders, thinkers, collaborators and problem solvers of the 21st Century. Some of the highly effective practices are links to videos to help illustrate the practice.
