SBDC Two-Day Workshop to Explore Habits of Highly Effective People

September 6, 2017

Renowned as the world’s premier personal leadership development and training program, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” which aligns timeless practices with modern technology, will be offered through a two-day workshop in Casper.

The Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) workshop is scheduled Monday, Sept. 25, and Tuesday, Sept. 26, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Small Business Administration (SBA) offices in the Federal Building, located at 150 E. “B” St., in Room 1011.

The SBDC is a partnership among the University of Wyoming, the Wyoming Business Council and the U.S. SBA. The SBDC focuses on educating small-business owners and potential owners on how to successfully start and operate small businesses. The SBDC’s main office is located at UW.

Covey’s book, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” first published in 1988, has sold more than 25 million copies worldwide. The audio version became the first nonfiction audiobook in U.S. publishing history to sell more than 1 million copies.
