7 Habits , Pre-Work Activities


Dear Shangri-La Leaders,

Warm greetings from SLIM Dubai.

Congratulations on being selected to attend the upcoming workshop: 7 Habits of Highly Effective People in your hotel! For the last 25 years, this workshop has proven to offer new perspectives to leaders by learning key principles that deeply underlie effective, productive living.

During our 2 days together we will explore:

• Developing greater productivity and the ability to manage one’s self • Executing critical priorities with increased focus and planning • Increasing team engagement, morale and collaboration • Improving communication skills and strengthening relationships • Creating a framework for developing core values • Developing members of your teams into future leaders who model character and confidence

In preparation to this workshop, you are requested to complete two pieces of pre-work presented in this document. Please take some time to review and complete accordingly.

I very much look forward to spending two insightful days with you, in which through reflection and practice we can identify new ways to becoming more effective not only in the workplace but also having an effect on your personal lives.

Warmest regards,

Daniel Agudelo Director of Learning and Development, Shangri-La EMEA / North America

American Educator, Author and Businessman Stephen Covey was inspired by the concepts of Humanistic Psychologist Carl Rogers and philosopher Peter Drucker.

Covey designed a effectiveness and their long-term success. Most of Covey’s work has been tested by experimental research demonstrating the benefits of applying these habits into daily life. Furthermore, many of his principles incorporate aspects of Behavioural Psychology, Cognitive-behavioural therapy and Positive Psychology.


Attached to the email you will find a PDF file called: 7 habits profile. Find a quiet space and complete the rating for each category according to the instructions presented in the assessment.

An assessment of this type is only assertive if you try to be as honest as possible when choosing your score. This means:

Do not overthink your answers.

• Try to think of examples of your daily behaviours in order to demonstrate whether your first response is in fact true or if it represents more a “desirable” goal. • This is a personal assessment, as such it is only for your eyes. You do not have to worry about others seeing your assessment.

Dr. Stephen COVEY 1936 - 2012 American Educator, Author, Businessman

Please bring your completed assessment to the workshop in which you will learn in detail about each of the habits evaluated.
