Marc Antosch - Contributing Writer , Maui Weekly

A man by the name of Stephen R. Covey spent most of his life trying to quantify and teach best practices of effectiveness. His achievements have created a powerful movement under the FranklinCovey name, which revolve around his philosophies described in his book, "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People." Believe it or not, we can all benefit from his wisdom.

We are all involved with management at some level. Whether you manage your finances, family life, or manage employees, you'll be interested to know that certified instructors live and teach FranklinCovey seminars right here on Maui. In fact, EdVenture is extremely proud to say that 1,005 Maui County residents have now experienced this training.

"This program is designed to share habits that help individuals acquire private and public victories, both professionally and in their personal lives," said Dr. Lori Teragawachi, a facilitator for FranklinCovey since 1997.

Oh, and you are still probably wondering what these "7 Habits" are? Well, I do not have enough space to do Dr. Covey justice. But, here's a teaser the first habit is be proactive. "Take initiative in life by realizing that your decisions are the primary determining factor for effectiveness in your life. Take responsibility for your choices and the consequences that follow."

This seminar has changed the lives of more than 25 million people worldwide since 1989 and continues to amaze hundreds of new students everyday.

"The 7 Habits for Managers: A FranklinCovey Program" will be held on Sept. 26 and 27 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
