Habits are powerful forces that shape human lives and determine their success or failure. They determine levels of effectiveness or ineffectiveness of individuals or teams.

The purpose of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is to help people understand how to live in a truly effective way. The habits included in this course, which is based on the original Stephen R Covey’s work represent a proven process of personal and interpersonal growth that can have an immediate and lasting impact.

As relevant today as when Stephen R. Covey first wrote them, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is based on principles of effectiveness that endure and resonance across teams. 

For about 25 years, FranklinCovey has helped millions of professionals to become more effective in their work and personal lives. Based on the proven principles found in Stephen R. Covey’s best-selling business book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People will enable individuals and organisations alike to achieve sustained superior results by focusing on making individuals and leaders more effective.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People as designed and delivered at the International School of Management (ISM) Lagos will enable professionals to break down barriers to success while laying a robust foundation of effectiveness for individuals, employees, their leaders and organisations.



There is a popular truism that “Change is the most constant thing in life” but probably truer than that is the fact that “Crisis is as constant as (if not more than) change”. This may sound like a paradox but a critical reflection will provide convincing discussions during this course.

Preparing for a crisis is not a luxury; it is actually a necessity. As individuals or professionals, we all know the odds are high that our personal lives or businesses will (definitely) suffer a disaster or crisis at some point. However, it is unacceptable for anyone to excuse or resign himself to fate due to sheer unpreparedness.

This comprehensive course provides up-to-date assessments and knowledge on issues that affect individuals, their organizations and societies - such as cyber security, supply chain, terrorism, pandemic, DR trends, emergency response, leadership, data breach, communications, news media, social media — from the experts involved with these efforts. It also examines strategies for job and career improvement during and after crisis. Delegates on this course will have the opportunity to interact with our lecturers and with peers from industry, academia, and government.

By the end of the course, delegates will have the tools, knowledge, and understanding to benchmark, assess, and improve their personal and business continuity plans, disaster recovery, and crisis management program. This includes the course manual (print and/or e-files), templates, and current articles.

Delegates would gain valuable contacts, have plenty of networking opportunities, and acquire insights for immediate implementation.
