The Leader in Me

Leader in Me

Richland Elementary staff, students, and families live the belief that leadership is for all! The Leader in Me process is based on the work of Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The Leader in Me is an elementary version of this work. As described on the websiteThe Leader in Me is an ongoing 'process that teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students, and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.' We promote and foster this belief in the QCSD curriculum and teach students about responsibility, creativity, ownership of learning, goal setting, self-awareness, initiative, communication, integrity, and teamwork. 

The 7 Habits:

  1. Be Proactive - I am in charge of me.
  2. Begin with the end in mind - Have a plan.
  3. Put first things first - Work first, then play.
  4. Think win-win - Everyone can win.
  5. Seek first to understand, then be understood - Listen before you speak.
  6. Synergize - Together is better.
  7. Sharpen the saw - Balance is best.

We ask you to join us on our journey and give you tools to support leadership at at school and at home!
