Sharpening the Saw

One of Stephen Covey’s recommended “Seven Habits” is to “sharpen the saw,” or take time to improve or refresh skills. I am doing so this week by taking part in the Sun Microsystems course, “Managing for Success,” a workshop required for all new Sun Managers. Since I became a Sun manager nine months ago, it is high him I pause to take the course.

I have been pleasantly surprised by the course content and instructor, June Ramos. Although I have been managing people in one way or another for almost 30 years, it has been a good experience to pause again and focus on the basic principles and techniques of leadership that really work – a “familiar principles, revisited” type of experience.

I’ll share a few insights from the course with you over the next few days.
