Learn how to maximize your scientific research while staying balanced through the principles of “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen R. Covey. By applying the techniques of the 7 Habits, the scientific environment can flourish by growing in individual independence and collaborative interdependence, thereby increasing our capabilities to do great research for the benefit of human society. The habits describe how to live proactively instead of reactively, follow through with your goals, avoid living in crisis mode, establish mutually beneficial relationships, listen empathetically, synergize efforts with others for greater outcomes, and avoid burn-out through self-renewal. The seminar will include specific activities to help you develop your own expression of the 7 Habits.
