Empowering Students for the 21st Century
Instead of seeing children through the lens of a normal distribution curve—some kids are smart and some less smart—The Leader in Me paradigm is that every child is capable of being a leader.
Based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®
, The Leader in Me
is a whole-school transformation process that integrates principles of leadership and effectiveness into school curriculum using everyday, age-appropriate language.
The Leader in Me is not an event or a curriculum—it’s leadership development everywhere, all the time. Instead of “teaching leadership every Tuesday at 1 p.m.,” educators make leadership training part of everything they do. As teachers will tell you, it’s not doing one more thing; it’s doing what you’re already doing in a better way.
Schools that use The Leader in Me process report student increases in:
- Diversity awareness
The Leader in Me process has proven to:
- Improve school culture.
- Decrease disciplinary issues.
- Increase teacher engagement and parent involvement.
