Transcript of Principle Centered Leadership

How Can We Live Lives aligned with Principles?
Who Proposed Principled Centered Leadership?

Dr. Stephen R. Covey
What are 3 key principles?
1. Be humble
2. Be giving
3. Be empathetic
Why are principles important?
They guide one in the right direction, just like a compass that helps you by telling you where north is. (Widener University).
Habits of principled people?
2. Write out the 5 principles that I want to live by and read them repeatedly and make promises based on those and try to keep them. (Covey, ...)
1. Mission Statement (why?) - guides & inspires
2. Future Ideal
3. Key principles - identified
4. Key values - known and acted upon
5. Core beliefs - clear about beliefs about self & others.
6. Deposits to the EBA - emotional bank account.
7. Trust - character, competence & good judgement from reflecting on experiences (Covey, 1992).
Or what is the difference between values and principles?
"Covey has identified eight characteristics of principled-centered learners:

They are continually learning (humility).
They are service-oriented (contribution).
They radiate positive energy (hope and optimism).
They believe in other people (compassionate).
They lead balanced lives (flexible).
They see life as an adventure (courage).
They are synergistic (wisdom)" (Widener University).
