Inspiring Greatness In Youth

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens gives young people a set of proven tools to deal more successfully with real life. The training in these concepts provides a means for educators to improve student performance; reduce conflicts, disciplinary problems, and truancy; and to enhance cooperation and teamwork among parents, teens, and teachers.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens are essentially seven characteristics that happy and successful teens have in common. Habits 1, 2, and 3 deal with self-mastery, called the ‘private victory’ Habits 4, 5, and 6 deal with relationships and teamwork, or the ‘public victory’. The last habit, Habit 7, is the habit of renewal. It feeds all the other six habits. An activity guide, The Choice is Yours, is designed to introduce students to the concepts. Utilizing fun and straightforward activities, students are encouraged to express themselves in thoughtful and creative ways, while reflecting on their approach to everyday situations and choices they are facing. The habits build upon each other and foster behavioral change and improvement from the inside out.

The training can be integrated in any school’s curriculum and provides students with a step-by-step framework for boosting self-image, building friendships, resisting peer pressure and making smarter decisions, as well as improving communication and relationships with parents and teachers.
