Leader in Me

What is the Leader in Me?

We are a Leader in Me© school. It is Franklin Covey’s whole school transformation process. It teaches leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. 

The 7 Habits for kids are:

Habit 1: Be Proactive. You’re in Charge: I am a responsible person. I take initiative. I choose my actions, attitudes, and moods. I do not blame others for my wrong actions. I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking.

 

Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind. Have a Plan. I plan ahead and set goals. I do things that have meaning and make a difference. I am an important part of my classroom and contribute to my school’s mission and vision. I look for ways to be a good citizen.

 

Habit 3: Put First Things First. Work First, Then Play. I spend my time on things that are most important. This means I say no to things I know I should not do. I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan. I am disciplined and organized.

 

Habit 4: Think Win-Win. Everyone can win. I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others want. I make deposits in others’ Emotional Bank Accounts. When conflicts arise, I look for third alternatives.

 

Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood. Listen before you talk. I listen to other people’s ideas and feelings. I try to see things from their viewpoints. I listen to others without interrupting. I am confident in voicing my ideas. I look people in the eyes when talking.

 

Habit 6: Synergize. Together is Better. I value other people’s strengths and learn from them. I get along well with others, even people who are different than me. I work well in groups. I seek out other people’s ideas to solve problems because I know that by teaming with others we can create better solutions than anyone of us can alone. I am humble.

 

 

Habit 7: Sharpen The Saw. Balance Feels Best. I take care of my body by eating right, exercising and getting sleep. I spend time with family and friends. I learn in lots of ways and lots of places, not just at school. I find meaningful ways to help others.
