7 Habits of Highly Effective People

 Have you ever wondered how highly successful and effective people manage to do what they do? In his book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, Stephen R. Covey successfully provided the framework for how these individuals have personally developed natural principles and habits to make them successful.  The good news is these principles can be taught, learned and become the habits of anyone wanting to challenge and improve their path to success.                      Dr. Michael Perusich, instructor. $99.00

That is what Six Sigma does to business: it treats the processes in business so that they deliver their intended result. This workshop will provide an introduction to this way of thinking that has changed so many corporations in the world and give you an overview of the Six Sigma methodology, and some of the tools required to deploy Six Sigma in your own organizations.   Instructor TBA. $99.00
