"Increasing levels of effectiveness and productivity are as important in today's workplace as they were 20 years ago, when The 7 Habits book was first published," said Sean Covey, Senior Vice President of Innovations, FranklinCovey. "Now, through e-learning, employees who work off-site, on-site or both can apply these timeless principles to help them yield greater productivity, improve interpersonal communication and take more initiative. As they establish greater trust, strengthen relationships, increase their influence, and focus on critical priorities, they will also enhance team performance."
"The 7 Habits Interactive Edition provides a way for organizations through e-learning to teach these principles and skills to all leaders and employees – regardless of work location – quickly and inexpensively, so that organizations can benefit from larger scale behavior change," said Jeff Snipes, CEO and founder of Ninth House. "This is critical in today's business environment where organizational change and innovation is often required on a global basis and needs to happen fast thereby requiring quality technology-based solutions to provide the geographic reach."
The 7 Habits Interactive Edition is based on Stephen R. Covey's international bestselling book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The e-learning course is designed to help employees improve their individual and organizational effectiveness, enabling them to achieve better results and more successful lives. The program is a participatory e-learning experience that illustrates the behaviors and practices of each of the 7 Habits, teaches the user how to incorporate the 7 Habits into their behavior and evaluates the success of the user on each habit. The 7 Habits modules include:
1. Be Proactive®
2. Begin with the End In Mind®
3. Put First Things First®
4. Think Win-Win®
5. Seek First to Understand®
7. Sharpen the Saw®
The leadership development program includes use of cinematic video, real actors, award-winning storytelling, reality-based simulations and powerful case studies to create an emotional connection for the learner. It facilitates complex behavior modeling and demonstrates the nuances of human interactions. Users interact with real-life simulations and interactive exercises allowing them to practice newly learned skills and behaviors in a safe but realistic environment.
According to Human Resource Executive magazine, "This product should keep employees engaged as they go through the process. The films look like a Hollywood-produced movie or TV show, with high-quality acting, writing and production and even a touch of comedy to keep users interested."
"We are deeply honored to have The 7 Habits Interactive Edition receive this recognition from Human Resource Executive magazine, a publication that has contributed so much within the industry. Through the partnership between FranklinCovey and Ninth House, The 7 Habits have come alive with this interactive cinematic approach to leadership development," said Stephen Covey. "We are applying new and innovative methods to make leaders, managers, teams and individuals more effective and productive than ever before."
Organizations have the option of deploying the leadership development program as a standalone e-learning course or as part of a blended learning program.
