A Tribute to Stephen Covey’s “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”
I am sure, all you aspiring leaders & managers would have definitely glanced through Stephen R. Covey’s book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People . Well, do you know that there are books written “on” this book? First published in 1989, it is running its 15th edition. And it’s available in 38 languages and has sold more than 25 million copies across the world.
Deltecs has its own fan base of Covey’s works. And we like to believe that our flagship product DRONA Mobile aspires to support the 7 habits that could make you a highly effective person too – for the collective good of your enterprise or business, your family and your community. Cultivating the seven habits Covey alludes to in his book are expected to help you become independent and responsible, work with others, and renew yourself physically, mentally and spiritually.
The move to independence comes with the first 3 habits:
- Be proactive
- Begin with the end in mind
- Put first things first
As a mobile engagement platform, DRONA supports real time or scheduled delivery of content that enhances engagement. Just-in-time job aids and relevant training materials that are accessible to personnel around the clock add to their professional confidence and self-worth; not to mention the appreciation that comes from the notable improvement in the quality of their daily work. CXO announcements, newsletters, surveys, all delivered directly to personal smartphones generate feelings of belongingness, recognition and appreciation, organizational loyalty, and commitment.
The next 3 habits:
- Think win-win
- Seek first to understand, then to be understood
DRONA is a great medium for team bonding and aligning personnel with business vision. Understanding the role each person plays within an organization goes a long way in creating synergy and commitment. Trainings and self-help material made available to DRONA users also address non-technical issues that enhance personality development and help create a positive and pleasant work environment.
The 7th habit:
- Sharpen the saw
DRONA not only enhances the professional value of personnel but also makes them happier people around the workplace and at home. There could soon come a time when users themselves could add personal content into DRONA that renews them spiritually or mentally.
The possibilities are many and our journey has just begun. With Covey’s guidelines, we aspire to become better and continue delivering products that add value to people in tangible and intangible ways.
