    LEADER IN ME - Kickoff

    7 Habits of Highly Effective People and Kids: With the support of Franklin Covey Inc. Leola Elementary is focused on how we as educators can create leaders, one child at a time. The Leader in Me schoolinitiative which is based on Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, is going to be embedded across all subject areas, and will be demonstrated and taught daily. We were fortunate to receive a grant to become partners with Franklin Covey for this wonderful opportunity!
    • Be Proactive – Take responsibility for your life. Choose to act deliberately and take responsibility for your actions. Listen to your language and be proactive rather than reactive! 
    • Begin With the End in Mind – Define your mission and goals in life. Live your life with hope and purpose. Know what you want before you begin.

    • Put First Things     First – Prioritize and do the most important things first. Make the most effective use of your time by prioritizing. Work smarter, not harder. 


    • Think Win-Win – Have an ‘everyone can win’ attitude. Build successful relationships with others by finding a solution that works for all.


    • Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood – Listen to people sincerely. Hear others with your eyes, ears and heart. Only 7% of communication is verbal, 93% is body language, tone and feeling.


    • Synergize – Work together to achieve more. Two or more people can work together to create a better solution than either one could create alone. Synergy requires valuing people’s uniqueness and individuality.


    • Sharpen the Saw – Renew yourself regularly. Balance all dimensions of your life: body, mind, heart and soul.
