Great organizations and individuals know that the key to success is effectiveness -- working, managing, or leading others, so that the habits of effectiveness form a pathway to extraordinary results.
Our leadership courses, based on Stephen R. Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, teach you how to tap into effectiveness at all levels.
Habit 1: Be Proactive
Habit 2: Begin With The End in Mind
Habit 3: Put First Things First
Habit 4: Think Win-Win
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then To Be Understood
Habit 6: Synergize
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
Organizations that have implemented The 7 Habits experience positive changes in corporate culture, improved customer satisfaction, and enhanced collaboration and problem-solving. All of which lead to increased productivity and profits. And people who've taken our courses agree, citing benefits such as better prioritization of work, improved communication skills - especially listening, and a renewed appreciation for the power of diversity. As one participant says, "Simply put; you need to attend."
A Longwood alumnus, Thomas I. DeWitt, made a generous contribution to the Longwood University Foundation in 2010 empowering the initial launch of the Institute. To recognize this contribution the Institute was named for the organization that Mr. DeWitt has led as CEO.
SNVC, LC is a veteran-owned company founded in 1998. It provides its clients, including the Department of the Army, with technical expertise ranging from program management support to technical and engineering services.
Mr. DeWitt credits his Longwood education with the skills and confidence to establish and ground his firm in three corporate values -- Leadership, Integrity, and Commitment.
It is with partners like Mr. DeWitt that Longwood University and the SNVC Institute for Leadership and Innovation is a testament to staying committed to developing Citizen Leaders who will operate with integrity, leading society toward a brighter future.
