The 7 Habits Coach: Episode 3

What is my Circle of Concern® and Circle of Influence®, and how can I use them to feel in control?

Join FranklinCovey thought leader Todd Davis, chief people officer, as he discusses your Circle of Concern and how to focus instead on your Circle of Influence. Taken from the timeless principles found in The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, learn how to thrive even during times of change and uncertainty.

In this episode, you will learn how to:

  • Identify the stimuli in your life right now and possible responses to each one
  • Differentiate between your Circle of Concern and your Circle of Influence
  • Operate within your Circle of Influence to exert greater control and experience increased peace during stressful times

You’ll also hear Todd’s own experience of having to follow government social distancing guidelines while also dealing with a natural disaster and how he looked to a friend as an example of staying within the Circle of Influence.


At the end of this episode, you will receive a challenge to work on to begin mastering the 7 Habits. Watch the video to learn about this challenge.
