This paper analyzes and examines the above books and discusses the seven habits of highly effective people. Based on these readings, the author provides a personal development plan on three specific behaviors she feels would be important for her to develop as a leader.

From the Paper:

"The third habit of highly effective people is putting first things first. As Covey notes, individuals and/or teams should "create a clear, mutual understanding of what needs to be accomplished, focusing on what, not how; results not methods. Spend time. Be patient. Visualize the desired result." Simply put, in order to develop a personal development plan or other concept, individuals and/or teams need to prioritize. It is impossible for anyone, in one year's time, to work on everything they would like to learn. Having nine, ten, or more goals and dozens of objectives is akin to being set up for failure."
