The Sandwich Model

Effective model building need not be complicated. Creating an effective visual aid can be as simple as employing the old, time-tested “sandwich” structure.
Stephen Covey, in his best-selling book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People , tells us how good habits are formed from the merger of skill, knowledge and desire.

In my opinion, that’s a good start, but there is one more element that is necessary to establish effective habit. Or anything else, for that matter.

It is action, , , hard work, , , both seen and unseen.

So I have prepared a simple graphic to help you teach this principle.

Try it out on your next audience.

You can use this clickable model, from this blog and project it. Or you can hand draw it on a flipchart or whiteboard.
