About the course

A seminar designed to improve your personal effectiveness and productivity.

By FranklinCovey—Available through AMA. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People® Signature Edition 4.0 program is based on the teachings of Dr. Stephen R. Covey.

No matter how competent a person you are, you will not have sustained and lasting success unless you are able to effectively lead yourself, influence, engage, and collaborate with others—and continuously improve and renew your capabilities. These seven habits of highly effective people are at the heart of team, organizational, and personal effectiveness.

Renowned as the world’s premier personal leadership development and training program, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People aligns timeless principles of personal effectiveness with the relevancy of today’s practices as well as modern technology. The new Signature 4.0 solution takes the 7 Habits to a whole new level. The new solution includes even more tools and processes to help you live and apply the 7 Habits, including more than 30 new, world-class videos, a new Living the 7 Habits mobile app, new Skill and Practice cards with 20 new 7 Habits practices, and much more.
