In response to the Sunday Advice, Dr. Mike Seabolt writes (and then recommends):
“The advice to ‘Seek first to understand, then to be understood,’ is a basic principle of Steven Covey’s, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
It is a great read and will dramatically improve your leadership ability. The book focuses on communication and personal relationships and how they are used by effective leaders to promote their organizations.
The book was extremely popular 20 years ago, but is not much read these days it seems. The underlying principles are timeless, however, and I recommend the read. “
Doc, if you hadn’t mentioned that the book was published twenty years ago, all of these 22 year old teachers and 29 year old AP’s would think that it was new.
Think. Work. Achieve.
