• The Leader in Me is a school-wide philosophy that encourages individual leadership and positive character at school, home, and the community through the 7 Habits principles. It is not a curriculum or an instructional method, but is rather a mindset that encourages students and staff to see themselves as leaders. The Leader in Me encourages personal goal setting and achieving for students and adults. It is a child-friendly extension of the book, "7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Franklin Covey.
