The Leader In Me

An innovative, schoolwide model that empowers students to be leaders in the 21st century.

 


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
