Information : Seven Habits of Highly Effective People
Corpus Christi Army Depot (CCAD) has implemented the training of Stephen R. Covey’s “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” for all Depot personnel. This training is being conducted to help foster and strengthen teamwork. Briefly, Covey’s analysis reviewed people in leadership positions throughout history and determined that effective leaders possess the same identifiable traitstraits that allow these people to be successful in a variety of occupations. Covey found that the seven character traits foster inter-dependence among people, thereby attaining a state of continuous improvement. This is a training goal at CCAD.
The Covey training is part of four very effective training programs at CCAD. These programs are the vehicles that the Depot is using to develop the workforce and increase the people skills of all employees. The ultimate goal of this and other programs (e.g., Myers-Briggs Type Indicator [MBTI], High Performing Organization [HPO], Honesty, Ethics, Accountability, Respect, Trust & Support [HEARTS]) is to create a workforce that will be productive and flexible enough to achieve a 30% reduction of costs at the Depot over the next few years. CCAD is investing up-front in employees to achieve success in the future.
