Supporting the The 7 Habits at home!

7-Habits Take Home Activity for March

This month’s Habit: Habit 5 Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood

Activity: Eyes, Ears, Heart Activity

Due Date: March 29, 2019

Habit #5 - Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood

What this means: Listen before you talk. In order to communicate effectively, we must first understand each other.

“I listen to other people’s ideas and feelings.”

“I try to see things from their viewpoints.”

“I listen to others without interrupting.”

“I am confident in voicing my ideas.”

“I look people in the eyes when talking.”

How can I do this in my life?

1. Listen.

2. Put yourself in the other person’s place.

3. Notice a person’s body language, tone, and reflection in their voice.
