What is The Leader In Me™?

The Leader In Me™ is a whole-school transformation model and process
based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People that seeks to create a culture of trust and develop student’s voice.

It is based on principles and practices of personal, interpersonal and organizational effectiveness and it helps empower students to lead their own lives and make a difference with others while providing them with the tools necessary to better achieve goals.

The Leader In Me™ helps students learn how to:

  • Become self-reliant
  • Take the initiative
  • Plan ahead
  • Set and track goals
  • Prioritize their times
  • Manage their emotions
  • Be considerate of others
  • Express their viewpoint persuasively
  • Resolve conflicts & find creative solutions
  • Value differences

Why The Leader In Me™

The Leader In Me™ differs from other whole-school transformation processes in that it offers a holistic, school-wide experience for staff, students, and parents. It also creates a common language and culture within school. The leadership principles and lessons are not taught as a subject but instead are incorporated into coursework, traditions, systems, and culture.

It utilizes and integrates several leadership, social-emotional learning, equity and educational models from past and current thought leaders.

The Leader In Me includes training on:

  1. Establishing a vision for the school
  2. Goal-setting
  3. Data-tracking
  4. Personal accountability systems

The Leader In Me™ provides a logical, sequential, and balanced process to help schools proactively design a culture that reflects their vision of their school. It is aligned with best-in-class content and concepts practiced by global education and thought leaders.


The course has been developed for elementary schools and students ages from 4 to 11 and 12 to 15 years old.

The process 

The Leader In Me™ model includes all school staff and it is implemented over a three year period. The entire course is followed closely by a special-educated FranklinCovey partner through workshops, teaching, and support suited to your needs.

Student Materials 

Students are offered a thorough teaching material for all grades and the school has access to an international web forum for knowledge sharing with, among other things, Activities, Guides, Videos, and Experiences from other teachers.
