Leader in Me, 7 Habits - A whole-school transformation model that acts like the operating system of a computer — it improves performance of all other programs. Based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, The Leader in Me produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, fewer discipline problems, and increased engagement among teachers and parents. Better yet, The Leader in Me equips students with the selfconfidence and skills they need to thrive in the 21st century economy. The Leader in Me is a process for teaching students personal leadership and 21st century life skills, such as goal setting, time management, teamwork, problem solving, respecting diversity , and life balance. The process:
Develops the “whole child” and sees each child as having unique gifts Is founded on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and other proven leadership principles and tools Creates a sustainable, safe-and-friendly school culture Provides world-class professional development for teachers and administrators Increases parents’ satisfaction and involvement Is implemented in a way that teachers do not see it as “one more thing,” but as a better way of doing what they were already doing Impacts students of diverse backgrounds, regardless of race, intelligence, or economic upbringing.
We are promoting Habit 1 with the “proactive” way of thinking rather than “reactive” way. We are also centering on “Beginning with the end in mind” which will help the students make goals and strive to meet them. The 3rd Habit teaches us to “Put first things first” which emphasizes placing priority on our work. Habit 4 promotes the “Think Win-Win” with helping us when working with others and their feelings. Habit 5 focuses on “Seeking first to understand, then to be understood”. It’s important to remember to listen first before responding. Habit 6 teaches the principle of “Synergize” and how we can work together in cooperation. “Sharpening the saw” is what Habit 7 represents with ways to renew our bodies, minds, hearts and souls in order to be more effective. The students have done an excellent job at learning the habits, now we will focus on living the habits so that our words and actions match the habits. We hope you take the time to visit the website: www.leaderinme.org to research the parental resources available to you in efforts to support your children. We look forward to this year as we are developing leadership qualities in each child. Persuasive Essay Outline I. Introduction:
