The 7 Habits® for Humanitarians


This inspiring programme – based on the world’s premier personal leadership development solution by FranklinCovey - has taken a tried and tested approach and has been recreated for the world and realities of humanitarians.


The 7 Habits ®  - for Humanitarians - Maturity-continuum

How the 7 Habits® work together

The 7 Habits® for Humanitarians challenges you to evaluate your current thinking and behavior and helps you become more aware, more focused and, ultimately, highly effective as an individual and as a humanitarian.

    - Develop a heightened awareness of your choices, a clear vision and a renewed desire to achieve your mission

    - Strengthen your personal credibility

    - Achieve critical priorities with focus and passion

  • 2. Team

    - Improve communication skills and develop relationships of trust

    - Increase team engagement, morale and collaboration

  • 3. Organizational

    - Create a framework for developing core values and creating a highly effective culture.

    - Develop current and high potential leaders who model both character and competence.

This programme is open to humanitarian staff (UN, NGOs, development and emergency organizations)

I believe we would be a better and more effective organization if the principles of the course were the foundation of our culture. Training typically focuses on building specific skill sets and ignores the foundation on which we are trying to construct; this course is how to build or shore up that foundation. And it is as crucial to entry-level staff as it is to senior managers.
— Gabrielle Waaijma, Kenya Deputy Head of the Regional Office for Eastern Africa at UNOCHA
This was truly one of the most useful and relevant experience I have had during my career in UNHCR. It provided us with an opportunity to reflect on our attitudes, professional behavior and focus on our weaknesses and strengths. It serves as checks and balance and proved to be a helpful tool of self‐learning.
— Hamdi Bukhari, UNHCR Representative Mexico
This workshop is perhaps the best initiative that (…) has done to stimulate a reflection journey to understand ourselves and people surrounding us, our thoughts and deep roots of aspiration for a change that one person can do. I can see a difference on the faces of the people attending the workshop, and I hope most of us will practice what we have learnt here.
— Emmanuel Gignac, Chief of Mission, UNHCR Libya
