IRRI offers Covey's 7 Habits development programs

IRRI Human Resource Services (HRS) in partnership with the Center for Leadership and Change, Inc. (CLCI), the international partner of FranklinCovey in the Philippines, successfully delivered a back-to-back pilot of two of its most in-demand development programs, the 7 habits for highly effective people Signature Program and the 7 habits application for managers.

The 7 habits for highly effective people Signature Program is based on Stephen R. Covey's best-selling book, The 7 habits of highly effective people. The program provided a sequential framework for understanding personal and professional development. It also enabled participants to better apply timeless principles that yield greater productivity, improved communication, strengthened relationships, increased influence, and focus on critical priorities. It was attended by 19 administrative and research staff of IRRI and was held on 2-4 July 2012 at the Umali Auditorium, IRRI.

The 7 habits application for managers, attended by 18 managerial level IRRI staff, tackled the fundamentals of leading the modern, mobile knowledge worker. Both new and experienced managers acquired a set of tools to help them meet new management challenges including conflict resolution, prioritization, performance management, accountability and trust, execution, collaboration, and team and employee development. It was held 5-6 July 2012 in the same venue.
