Instead of seeing children through the lens of a normal distribution curve—some kids are smart and some less smart—The Leader in Me paradigm is that every child is capable of being a leader.
Based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, The Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation process that integrates principles of leadership and effectiveness into school curriculum using everyday, age-appropriate language.
The Leader in Me is not an event or a curriculum—it’s leadership development everywhere, all the time. Instead of “teaching leadership every Tuesday at 1 p.m.,” educators make leadership training part of everything they do. As teachers will tell you, it’s not doing one more thing; it’s doing what you’re already doing in a better way.
