What is The Leader In Me?

The Leader in Me is an approach to developing a culture of leadership in our schools and is based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People® by Stephen Covey. Founded on internationally recognized, universal principles, The Leader in Me model emphasizes skills that parents, teachers and business leaders want and that students need to be successful in an ever changing society:

   Leadership
   Responsibility
   Accountability
   Problem Solving
   Adaptability
   Communication
   Initiative and Self-direction
   Creativity
   Cross-cultural Skills
