People who are effective and proactive have a lot in common, and we can learn a lot from their successes and strategies. Successful people, no matter what field they are in, share similar traits. Today’s public sector work environment is increasingly challenging, complex and dynamic. It is becoming increasingly important to be aware of what you need to be successful as a person and how to increase your personal effectiveness.

It is often difficult to know which steps to take to enhance your effectiveness. Despite being willing to improve the way we work, we generally don’t know where to start or how to proceed to improve our general effectiveness.

In order to tackle this training need, Public Affairs Ireland Professional Development is scheduling this practical, focused seminar day based on the lessons drawn from Dr Stephen Covey’s bestselling book on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
During the programme delegates will explore the mindsets and tools necessary to engage with the 7 habits as outlined below:

• Be Proactive
• Begin with the end in mind
• Put first things first
• Think win/win
• Seek first to understand, then be understood
• Synergise
• “Sharpen the saw”

At the end of this seminar, delegates will have an in-depth understanding of how to:

• Learn to take initiative
• Develop a blueprint for individual success
• Focus on what matters most
• Learn to enhance interpersonal communications
• Learn to develop synergistic relationships
