Leader in Me

Based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, The Leader in Me produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, fewer discipline problems, and increased engagement among teachers and parents. Better yet, The Leader in Me equips students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive in the 21st century economy.

LCCPS has utilized The Leader in Me since 2010 and the program has complemented the program put in place by the leadership team at LCCPS. The Leader in Me uses a tree as its visual to explain the 7 habits for students. 

Throughout the year, students and teachers focus on the 7 habits and how these habits can empower students to be successful. One example is Habit 2: Begin with the end in mind. Have a plan. Students and teachers brainstorm the ways they want their classroom to operate, and the values the class will uphold. At the end of the process, each classroom creates its own mission statement for the class for the year.
