The Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation model that acts like the operating system of a computer – it improves performance of all other programs.  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.
