The Leader In Me - A Whole-School Transformation Process

The Leader in Me is Franklin Covey’s whole school transformation process. It teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.

Teaching Students 21st Century Leadership and Life Skills
Our schools should not merely be focused on improving test scores, but should provide opportunities for students to develop their full potential.

The Leader in me focuses on the following qualities:
   Leadership
   Responsibility
   Accountability
   Problem Solving
   Adaptability
   Communication
   Initiative and Self-Direction
   Creativity
   Cross-Cultural Skills
   Teamwork

Using Best-Practices and Universal Principles
The Leader in Me is aligned with best-in-class content and concepts practiced by global education thought leaders. It provides a logical, sequential and balanced process to help schools proactively design the culture that reflects their vision of the ideal school. Content from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a key component of the overall The Leader in Me process. The 7 Habits is a synthesis of universal, timeless principles of personal and interpersonal effectiveness, such as responsibility, vision, integrity, teamwork, collaboration and renewal, which are secular in nature and common to all people and cultures. The Leader in Me is also aligned to many national and state academic standards. The process teaches students the skills needed for academic success in any setting. These skills include critical thinking, goal setting, listening and speaking, self-directed learning, presentation-making and the ability to work in groups.
