Check out what other student leaders are doing to make a big difference around the Cedar Valley! Student leaders are stepping up at school, at home, and in the community. Check out these videos of Leader in Me student leaders.
Leader in Me is an international initiative sponsored by FranklinCovey and based on the seminal work of Dr. Steven Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Leader in Me is a school-wide process dedicated to transforming the leadership culture and performance at the schools.
Becoming a leader should not be an opportunity for just some students, but for ALL students. Dr. Stephen Covey defines leadership as a choice, not a position. Our educators are primed to help ALL students choose to be leaders in a nurturing environment that provides them the necessary authentic learning and leadership opportunities, while identifying and cultivating their special gifts and talents. Coupled with explicit teaching and practice of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, our young people have the opportunity to develop the essential soft skills needed for a life of effectiveness.
All of our Leader Valley Leader in Me schools embed the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, identify the gifts and talents of all students, and provide authentic and meaningful leadership roles and opportunities to learn about leadership. Leader in Me has four principle focuses:
– Developing essential soft skills in all students
– Identifying and nurturing the gifts and talents of all students
– Providing authentic and leadership opportunities for all students
– Applying The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
