7 Habits Journey

The Program

Do you hope for future success but are unsure how to achieve it? Are your efforts to improve falling short? Are you interested in understanding how to unleash the creativity, talent, and energy within you and others?

We may want success, we may want to change, but for most of us we feel that we either lack the support or we don’t know how. Dr. Stephen R. Covey spent his life helping individuals achieve their potential.

The 7 Habits Journey is a 1-credit personal development class for students designed to help you achieve your potential.

The content of the class is foundational and the approach to learning is cutting edge. The learning process consists of three parts: Personal Reflection, the Experiential Lab, and Habit Groups.

Personal Reflection

At the personal level, participants work through reflection activities contained in canvas modules to define who they are, what they value most in life, and who they want to become.

Experiential Lab

Thomas Jefferson said, “what we learn to do, we learn by doing.” Each Monday at 4 PM, all 7 Habits Journey participants meet together virtually to learn and practice the 7 Habits through experiential exercises. These exercises help equip students with the tools and habits for success. 

Monday classes are led by Leadership Professor and Associate Director of the Covey Center, Dr. Bret Crane

 Habit Groups

The third component of the 7 Habits Journey is weekly small group meetings in “Habit Groups." Led by a facilitator, these groups of eight offer a safe space for students to discuss their successes and failures in applying the 7 Habits. At the end of each meeting, students set a goal for how they want to improve in the coming week, and then they follow up with each other at the beginning of the following meeting. The small size of the groups helps foster an environment where trust and vulnerability can be shared among the members.

Habit Groups are facilitated by Covey Center Program Coordinator, Weston Hyde.

My 7 Habits Journey helped me recognize the simple, yet life changing adjustments I needed to make so I can have a life full of accomplishment, success, strong relationships, and complete happiness.
