Toasties Get Coveyfied

Last April 2, BnT launched a new series of meeting themes that highlight Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Effective People. This Leadership Handbook is an excellent learning tool for communicators. At BnT, we will apply these habits to becoming better speakers.

We kicked off last meeting with the first habit, Be Proactive. Tonight, we talk about the second habit, which is to Begin with the End in Mind. This is about having a clear understanding of your destination, whether it's to become a Competent Communicator in 2009 or to achieve a major life goal. Knowing where you are going translates to taking the steps towards the right direction.

Watch out for the next meetings as we build up the habits to becoming an effective communicator:

April 30- Habit 3: Put First Things Firts
May 14- Habit 4: Think Win/Win
May 28- Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
June 11- Habit 6: Synergize
June 25 - Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
July 9 - Bonus: The 8th Habit

One of the things that set Butter N Toast TMC apart is the way we use our meeting themes as tools for continuous learning. We've had series of themes that celebrate our values and highlight mentoring. We will continue to find better ways to help the Toasties become even better leaders and communicators.
