All of us strive to succeed in all we do. Success, however, is not easy. It needs sustained effort, focus, and determination to achieve. To facilitate this and to ensure our efforts are spent in the most effective manner we have developed the "Savola 8" document. On the surface, the "Savola 8" describes as set of traits geared towards enabling our success. At a deeper level, however, the "Savola 8" is a comprehensive and balanced system designed to bring about positive change to our inner traits, habits and characteristics, as well as in our external perceptions of people and events.
"Habits" alone are not sufficient to result in the type of deep character building we aspire for. For one, habits may not be purposeful. Habits may not be mutually enforcing. They may also be ethically inconsistent. While good habits, ones that are carefully crafted ( such as the "7 Habits of Highly Effective People - proposed by Steven Covey) go a long way to make us more effective, we in Savola are in search of deeper, more character building traits. Such a set is proposed here in the Savola 8.
Our "Savola 8" will enable us to achieve success both in our business and personal lives. They achieve this by helping us identify and up -root those personal attitudes that hinder our success. Then they help entrench the attitudes needed to propel us towards achievement of personal and business objectives.
The "Savola 8" is divided into two groups. First, there are the internal drivers we need to establish a sound, stable, and balanced set of attitudes and behaviors. These "internal 4" drivers work by creating a comprehensive framework that identifies the key behaviors, or traits we need to become more self - aware of our performance, and to remain driven to enhance that performance.
The second set of drivers is the "External 4". The "External 4" addresses an area key to our success, which is our ability to interact and work effectively with others. The "External 4" achieves this by enabling us to employ a process of developing effective interpersonal relationships.
