The Leader in Me

Leader in Me

The Leader in Me process helps develop the essential life skills and characteristics students need in order to thrive in the 21st century.  Although it is a program with student leadership at it’s core, it first develops adult leaders within the school, then leaders among students, parents and throughout the community.  The Leader in Me is integrated into a school's core curriculum and everyday language.  It becomes part of the culture, gaining momentum and producing improved results year after year, benefiting schools and students in the following ways:

    Develops adult leaders within the school who in turn are able to grow and support student leaders.

    Develops students who have the skills and self-confidence to succeed as leaders in the 21st century.

    Decreases discipline referrals.

    Teaches and develops character and leadership through existing core curriculum.

    Improves academic achievement.

    Raises levels of accountability and engagement among students, parents and staff. 


The Leader in Me process also helps to create a common language within a school, built on proven principles.  It is based on leadership skills found in Dr. Stephen R. Covey's best-selling book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People:

    Habit 1: Be Proactive® • You're in Charge 

    Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind® • Have a Plan

    Habit 3: Put First Things First® • Work First, Then Play

    Habit 4: Think Win-Win® • Everyone Can Win

    Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood® • Listen Before You Talk

    Habit 6: Synergize® • Together Is Better

    Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw® • Balance Feels Best
