7 Habits and Love Gama 2023-24

We had a productive and engaging time during your life classes after a long break. The focus on Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is evident in your description of the activities. Here’s a breakdown of the key points from your experience:

Habit 4: Think Win-Win: You engaged in discussions and exercises to understand how to turn various situations into win-win scenarios. This habit emphasizes the importance of seeking mutually beneficial solutions in interpersonal interactions.

Habit 5: Listening and Non-Verbal Communication: We learnt about the power of listening, both with and without words. Effective communication often involves active listening, which can help others calm down and feel heard.

Synergy at KG Farm: Our class participated in games at KG Farm with a focus on synergy. The initial focus may have been on winning individually, but as you progressed, you began to understand the value of working together and the power of synergy.

Games at KG Farm: These games included intense and challenging activities that tested your teamwork, coordination, and patience. Despite some setbacks, the overall experience helped your team build synergy and coordination.

Tug of War: The final game, tug of war, demonstrated the importance of synergy in achieving success. our team won most of the rounds, highlighting the effectiveness of working together.

Final Habit: Sharpen the Saw: We discussed the importance of self-care and personal growth, represented by Covey’s seventh habit. This habit emphasises maintaining and improving one’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Movie Demonstration: We watched a movie that illustrated several of Covey’s habits, including sharpening the saw, beginning with the end in mind, synergistic, and seeking first to understand before being understood. This movie likely served as a practical application of the concepts we learnt.

Overall, it appears that our life classes provided valuable insights into personal development, effective communication, teamwork, and the principles of the 7 Habits. These lessons can be applied to various aspects of our life, including relationships, work, and personal growth.

7 Habits & Love – Gamma – Day 3 & 4

Day 3 & 4 of life classes were having lots of fun, enjoyment and laughter. In these 2 days I learnt a lot about remaining 4 habits – “Think win-win, seek first to understand and then to be understood,  synergize and sharpen the saw.

On Day 3 I earnt 2 habits with different activities also we played a game on listening or different types of listening also we played a role model of different types of listening.

Day 4 we started with games on KG farm. All the games which we have played was totally on the concept of all these 7 habits. The moto behind these games were to understand how we can apply all these habit in our life can make our life easy.

After that the activity was to invent any new thing in life and then group yoga we have done with the habit synergize. We saw a movie “Master Geeta Rani” was the best example of all the habits.

Over all these 2 days were really engaged with activities, games, learning and fun.

7 habits & Love – Beta

Day 1 & 2

The life classes as expected were extremely heartwarming..The ambience created by the facilitators, the content shared by them, the trust amongst the team members which led to such sharing and pouring out of their life experience, all these have left me enriched with memories. They’ve given an insight about how everyone is dealing with their problems and moving ahead. It reinforced the concept “this too shall pass”….a concept we’re all aware of, but need to be reminded of in times of difficulty. 

The session leaves me light hearted and with a new perspective. Will definitely try being more proactive and focus more on the rocks (important things) and pebbles and leave worrying about the sand.

I would like to sincerely thank FS and our facilitators JB and SS for giving us the opportunity to be a part of this. Looking forward to implementing all that I have learned in personal as well as professional life. 

Awaiting the next session.

7 habbits & love – Beta

Day 3 & 4 were fun. Reconnecting with old team mates felt good. A lot many things discussed in the life class, is what we know but the way its reiterated is probably what makes the impact. Going back with the hope that I’ll implement what i learned and that I am a better listener and team player when we meet next. And yes, thoroughly enjoyed the games. Heartfelt gratitude to the facilitators.

Critical Thinking.

Critical Thinking is a very crucial part of our life. We need to apply critical thinking in decision making process. We learned about different biases like confirmation biases , group biases, declined biases. Thing is that these biases we observe in day to day life but concept about biases we learned in critical thinking class. we also learned to see one thing by different perspective, different angle that works in our life. overall critical thinking session is amazing life class which actually teach what should we take care when we make any decision. facilitator was amazing because their explanation is amazed.

Beta-7 Habits

It was an enriching experience of attending session 3 & 4 of life class. I learned how to covert any situation in Win-Win situation. It was a “learn with fun” kind of a session in which we learned by doing different activities. We , the team members shared our thoughts as well as problems and got the multiple fruitful solutions. We also had a fantastic talk on importance on listening. We had an intellectual interaction with Mr. Parag sir during the session. We showed our efforts as a single team and won few ground activities to learn synergize. The soul of the session was the trust and faith among all team member which made us to go deep down and shared incidents of our life. The success of the session goes to our kind and generous facilitators, Sufyan sir and Jyoti Ma’am for their tireless efforts. Sincere thanks to Sufyan sir, Jyoti Ma’am and all the Beta members.

Beta – 7 Habits (Session 1 and 2)

As part of the TLIM program, I had already received training in 7 habits. And so I thought that going through 7 habits all over again would turn out to be very boring. But it was not so!

The Beta group was led by Ms. Jyoti Banthia and Mr. Sufyan Saiyed. From the outset, the facilitators created an atmosphere of trust and comfort with their welcoming smiles. Both of them did not hold back in sharing their own personal stories in order for us to understand the concepts really well. JB and SS, being perceptive of our energy levels, included energisers to lift up our spirits and even maintained the pace of the sessions as per our needs. I was able to understand the first 3 habits in even more depth in these two days through activities and discussions. The time matrix and big rocks were the biggest takeaways for me and I hope to apply it in my daily planning and scheduling.

My Beta group co-learners were nothing less than awesome. For me, it’s a wonder how the trust was built among us in such a short time and how open we each were in sharing our vulnerabilities, especially in the activity where we had to imagine our death. The atmosphere was heavy and yet the spirit of non-judgemental acceptance that reflected in everyone was really heart warming. I gained new friends and gained a space to push myself out of my comfort zone. I am sure that everyone, just like me, gained some new perspectives and gratitude towards life by the end of 2 days.

Words are not enough to express the depth of feelings I experienced in those sessions. I’ll end my blog here. Looking forward to the next batch of life classes!
