Seven Habits of Highly Effective Steiner Graduates With Andrew Hill, CEO of Steiner Education Australia

4th December 2023

‘ You require a particular quality by constantly acting in a particular way… you become just by performing just actions, temperate by performing temperate actions, brave by performing brave actions.’ Aristotle.

After researching the lives and work of a range of very successful people, Professor Stephen Covey identified seven practices that they all had in common. His book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People has been a foundation text in university management schools ever since.

Our education lays down habits of living and learning that are intended to be lifelong. There are many healthy and uplifting practices our students do almost every day, and they can become lifelong habits that provide a grounded foundation for life. Of the many this talk will introduce and discuss seven habits of highly effective Steiner school graduates.

Andrew is a regular presenter on Steiner Education in Australia and internationally. He is passionate in sharing his knowledge with teachers, parents, and communities. In this presentation Andrew will explore some of the defining points of difference around how Steiner-educated graduates think, feel and add significant value to the world.

Discover this one-hundred-year-old legacy, and how The Alice Springs Steiner School inspires students to take their place in the world in a meaningful way for humanity.
