PostSubject: SEVEN HABBITS FOR MANAGERS   Tue Mar 11, 2008 5:48 pm

The 7 Habits for Managers
Effective Managers = Effective Organisations

These days, the demands of leadership are more complex than ever. More and more, organisations are seeking ways to develop leaders with not only competence, but Character as well. Companies need leaders who will not just be decisive, but will make the right decisions. And organisations need managers who can thrive in today's "do more with less" world. What's more, as the current generation of executives retires, experts predict a serious shortfall in managers qualified to replace those leaders.

FranklinCovey's The 7 Habits for Managers programme is an intensive application-oriented learning experience that addresses the entire role of the manager.

7 Habits for Managers
The "Industrial-Age" approach: providing generic "skills and techniques" needed to control employee behaviour. Management without the foundation of character training and the discipline to manage themselves first. Managers trained to a standardard of minimal competence - who then give minimally back to the organisation. The "Age of Knowledge Work" approach: unleashing the potential of team members, freeing them to make their best contribution. Managers who work on their character, who manage themselves effectively before trying to lead others. Managers bring their "whole selves" to work, define their unique contribution, and who achieve great and enduring results.

Habit 1
Be Proactive

Habit 2
Begin With the End in Mind® Define their unique contribution as managers
Define practical outcomes
Habit 3
Put First Things First® Focus on the important, not just the urgent
Set a few "wildly important goals"
Plan weekly, act daily

Habit 4
Think Win-Win® Balance courage and consideration
Manage performance through a Win-Win process
Build trust with co-workers

Habit 5
Seek First to Understand then to be Understood® Practice empathic listening
Give honest, accurate feedback

Habit 6
Synergise® Seek out differences, not just accept them
Synergise to arrive at new and better alternatives

Habit 7
Sharpen the Saw® Treat team members as "whole people"

Managers are essentially leaders, providing guidance & incentive to team members for the attainment of predetermined industrial and commercial objectives in a given highly competitive behavioural configuration; wherein each one of the units backed by its highly skilled & specialised leadership is attending to the market requirements as well as that of the morale building and maintenance of constant tempo without letting the team spirit or espirit de corpssuffer.

The task is becoming more & more complicted day by day, and it is becoming new industrial/commercial units to survive through sheer knowledge of the leadership requirements; unless these techniques are converted into permanent sub-conscious habits of the managment at all levels. Mere this much intrpoduction should suffice,otherwise we run the risk of indulging in repetition ; which is not a management viertue by any standard. Repetition involves cost-overrun and time-overrun; which is a negative attribute in any given situation of competition.Hence.............
