Habit One: Be Proactive :

Teams are more proactive if each person on the team accepts responsibility. Teams also must recognize which things they have control over. Proactive teams also “think outside the box.”

Habit Two: :

Habit Two: Have a clear picture of where you are going, what you want to accomplish. Explore what students need to know as end-of-year goals. Then design the team’s instruction to meet those goals. The “end” is the core of child-centered education. Begin with the End in Mind

Habit Three: Put first things first! :

Habit Three: Put first things first! Decide which things are the most important. Most important things are those that matter in the long run. Focus on priorities, not on trying to do it all. What is first may be different for each student. Consider the affective side of education. Establish positive working relationships Model appropriate behavior.

Habit Four – Think Win/Win!:

Habit Five: Seek to understand and then to be understood.:

Habit Five: Seek to understand and then to be understood. Everyone needs to be understood. Work towards emphathic listening, making others feel their concerns are important. Choose the right tone of voice, good body language, make eye contact, and focus. Being effective with middle level students and parents depends on the team’s ability to demonstrate empathic listening.

Habit Six: Synergize :

Habit Six: Synergize The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Value differences; Build on strengths; Compensate for weaknesses. If the team has an open mind, they can create something better than any individually could do! How to achieve team synergy! Identify differences, strengths, and areas for growth. Share this information among the team with a high level of trust. Move away from a “me” attitude toward a “we” attitude!
