Habit 4: Think Win-Win

posted Mar 14, 2016, 5:42 AM by Michelle Gravlin

Win/Win is a frame of mind and heart that constantly seeks mutual benefit in all human interactions. Win/Win means that agreements or solutions are mutually beneficial, mutually satisfying. With a Win/Win solution, all parties feel good about the decision and feel committed to the action plan. Win/Win sees life as a cooperative, not a competitive arena.”


Habit 3

“Habit 3 is the habit of WILL power versus WON'T power; the habit of putting first things first.”

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation.

 What we think affects what we do.
 Our behavior serves as a model for others

Habit 1: Being Proactive

posted Jan 13, 2016, 6:02 AM by Michelle Gravlin

Monday- CCS has started sharing the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens in grades 7-12.

This week we are starting with Habit 1-

Habit 1 is the habit of being pro-active.

This is the habit of personal responsibility.

The main principle are:responsibility, choice, accountability, initiative and respect.

Tuesday- This habit encourages being proactive vs reactive:

An example of proactive language:

I choose to….I’ll do it….  there has got to be a way…

A person who is reactive would say things like:

I have to….I’ll try...I can’t

Notice that the reactive language takes power away from you and gives it to something or someone else.  Proactive language puts the control back onto you and get to decide what happens

Wednesday- Being proactive really means 2 things. First, you take responsibility for your life. Second, you have a “can- do”attitude.

Can do people take initiative to make it happen, they think about solutions and options and they act!

The 7 Habits

1. Be Proactive - Roles and relationships in life. To have a can do attitude

2. Begin with the End in Mindenvision what you want in the future so that you know concretely what to make a reality.

3.Put First things Firstmanager must manage his own person. Personally. And managers should implement activities that aim to reach the second habit. Covey says that habit two is the mental creation; habit three is the physical creation

4. Think Win~WinGenuine feelings for mutually beneficial solutions or agreements in your relationships. Value and respect people by understanding a "win" for all is ultimately a better long-term resolution than if only one person in the situation had gotten his way.

5. Seek First to Understand then to be UnderstoodUse empathic listening to be genuinely influenced by a person, which compels them to reciprocate the listening and take an open mind to being influenced by you. This creates an atmosphere of caring, and positive problem solving.

6. Synergize- Combine the strengths of people through positive teamwork, so as to achieve goals that no one could have done alone.

7. Sharpen the SawBalance and renew your resources, energy, and health to create a sustainable, long-term, effective lifestyle. It primarily emphasizes exercise for physical renewal, prayer (meditation, yoga, etc.) and good reading for mental renewal. It also mentions service to society for spiritual renewal.

7 Habits Parody

To kick off the two day training for teachers about the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, students from the chorus performed a song parody. The song was based on an Adele hit and included words and phrases from the The Leader in Me books. 
We cannot thank these students enough for coming in on their day off to sing this song.
