The Leader in Me®


The 7 Habits are applicable and effective to develop
your potential and strenghten relations. The essence
of the 7 Habits is captured in the concepts of self
leadership and life skills. The Leader in Me® is the
proces in which the 7 Habits of Stephen Covey are
included. Worldwide The Leader in Me® is applied
wih astonishing success in more than 2000
elementary schools. More and more schools
are becoming interested and active with the
implementation of this great process. People who
adopt the skills and behaviour of the 7 Habits,
have better social skills and achieve more. They
can optimally develop their talents and personality.
The process effects the social emotional develop-
ment and behaviour of students. And students make
notable progress with language, literacy, numeracy.
