Course Details


To be effective is the job of a Leader, whether he works in a business, manufacturing operations, service-oriented industry, university, army or government agency.  The leader is, first of all, expected to get the right things done.  Effectiveness has little correlation with intelligence. While intelligence, imagination, and knowledge are essential resources, only effectiveness converts them into results.  By themselves, intelligence, imagination, and knowledge only set limits to what can be attained.  Effective leaders work hard to achieve personal and interpersonal effectiveness. Habits are powerful factors in the life of an effective leader.  They express one’s character and produce one’s effectiveness …or ineffectiveness.  Habits are like gravity pull, it can work with us or against us.  It is a powerful force, and if we can use it effectively we can use the gravity pull of habit to create the cohesiveness and order necessary to establish effectiveness in our lives.
