The Leader in Me program was implemented at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year to give children the tools to develop essential life skills and also create a common language within a school, built on proven principle-based leadership skills found in Dr. Stephen R. Covey’s best-selling book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The habits that are introduced are: Habit 1: Be Proactive • You're in Charge Habit; 2: Begin With the End in Mind, Have a Plan Habit; 3: Put First Things First - Work First, Then Play Habit; 4: Think Win-Win • Everyone Can Win; Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood • Listen Before You Talk; Habit 6: Synergize • Together Is Better Habit; 7: Sharpen the Saw • Balance Feels Best
