James Maddirala   “The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People”

Date: TBA

Time: 5:00pm – 6:30pm

Place: ACC Room 142 - 1st Floor (St. Thomas Campus)


Presenter:  Dr. James S. Maddirala

The Center for the Study of Spirituality and Professionalism presents the work of Stephen Covey’s book entitled “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”. This 2-part free lecture presented by Dr. James S. Maddirala provides a holistic, integrated, principle-centered approach for solving personal and professional problems. His book has been a top-seller and presents the ethical basis for human relations using the 7 habits. He presents an approach to being effective in attaining goals by aligning one's values with so-called "universal and timeless" principles and promotes what he labels "the character ethic".  As David Starr Jordan stated in the first line of the book, “There is no real excellence in all this world which can be separated from right living.” And that is how the author sets out to attempt to change our deepest paradigms.
