The Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation model that acts like the operating system of a computer—it improves the performance of all other programs. Based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, The Leader in Me equips students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive in the 21st-century economy.

What would be possible if your school were filled with students who were responsible, who showed initiative, who were creative, who knew how to set goals and meet them, who got along with people of various backgrounds and cultures, and who could resolve conflicts and solve problems?

Parents and business leaders knew  what they wanted in their schools-

•Leadership
•Accountability
•Adaptability
•Initiative and Self-Direction
•Cross-Cultural Skills
•Responsibility
•Problem Solving
•Communication
•Creativity
•Teamwork


    The Leader in Me process is now being implemented in over 1500 schools worldwide. Schools are consistently reporting:
•Increases in students’ self-confidence, teamwork, initiative, creativity, leadership, problem solving, communication, diversity awareness, and self-directed learning.
•Improved school culture.
•Dramatic decreases in disciplinary issues.
•Increased teacher pride and engagement.
•Greater parent satisfaction and involvement
