What is The Leader in Me™?
The Leader in Me™ is a whole-school transformation model that acts like the operating system of a computer — it improves performance of all other programs. Based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, The Leader in Me™ produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, fewer discipline problems, and increased engagement among teachers and parents. Better yet, The Leader in Me™ equips students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive in the 21st century economy.
What would be possible if our school was filled with students who were responsible, who showed initiative, who were creative, who knew how to set goals and meet them, who got along with people of various backgrounds and cultures, and who could resolve conflicts and solve problems? That is exactly what we’re going to achieve using The Leader in Me™ program.
The Leader in Me™ program teaches the following 7 Habits:
1. Be Proactive
2. Begin with the End in Mind
3. Put First Things First
4. Think Win-Win
5. Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
7. Sharpen the Saw
