Seven Habits of Highly Effective People Program

by Joe on July 3, 2009

Almost three months ago, I started a new role at Beta Theta Pi Fraternity and Foundation as the Assistant Controller.  This change has been exciting for me in many ways, but bittersweet others.  My time at NCR Corporation was an excellent way to start my working life.  NCR provided me with so many opportunities, especially amazing travel.  I was able to attend an awkward birthday party in India, examine how college impacted my work day in Budapest as I saw ATMs being built.


So leaving the global company behind, I began a new phase at a Non-Profit.  It has been amazing to move from having 30,000 co-workers to just 30.  In my first few weeks at Beta, one of my new coworkers facilitated Stephen Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People Signature Program for a group of the newest employees.  It was a great program and enabled me to spend some time thinking about how to define success and plan to achieve it.

So in the spirit of sharing, I am starting a series of posts about some of the concepts taught in the seven habits program.

As a start, check out the seven habits diagram, and lets begin our journey from dependence to interdependence!


Currently finishing the book… good stuff. I too like operations and accounting processes. I was a pivotal part of creating a process to efficiently approve drilling authorization for expenditures (AFE), called the Pre-drill process. This was for my former oil & gas E&P company. I’m now seeking new opportunities.

@AJ: Glad you’ve enjoyed the book, too! Effective processes in accounting are vital to maintaining high margins for companies. Good luck with your search. Let me know how I can help.
