About the Course

‘The 7 Habits of Successful Families’ workshop is an engaging, family-strengthening course based on Stephen R. Covey’s No. 1 Bestsellers ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ and ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families’. Without any doubt, we are all fully aware of the turbulent times we live in. Strong families with healthy relationships don’t just happen, it’s not a case of being ‘lucky’. Building firm family relationships takes the combined energy, skill, desire, vision, and focus of each family member, as well as a framework for applying universal principles that enable family members to communicate their challenges and overcome them successfully together. This course gives you the complete toolkit to build a great family culture with strong high trust relationships that are steeped in character and competence.

The 7 Habits Solution

If you ask most people what is most important to them – they would say family. But in reality, how much time is actually invested in family time compared with getting ahead in life? Many of us work diligently in every area of life, yet, neglect the family aspect, it is analogous to straighten the chairs on the Titanic. The 7 Habits of Successful Families course inspires us to create extraordinary family relationships and provides us with the insights and practical tools to do this. The course gives you a framework, a way of thinking, that you can apply to finding solutions to any family challenge.
