Leader In Me Parent Info

This year, we will be incorporating the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People based on the book, The Leader in Me, by Dr. Stephen R. Covey.  Our entire staff at Natcher Elementary will be focusing on this school-wide initiative. Through the implementation of this program, we will be teaching each student how to become a leader in school, at home, and in the community.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Students (taken from p.21-22 in the above pictured book):

Habit 1:  Be Proactive  
Being proactive means being responsible and taking responsibility for my actions.

Habit 2:  Begin with the end in mind  
When I begin with the end in mind, I plan ahead and set goals.

Habit 3:  Put first things first
When I put first things first, I spend my time on things that need to be completed first, then I do the things that I want to do next.

Habit 4:  Think win-win
I think about what others need and want, and I help out when conflicts arise.

Habit 5:  Seek first to understand, then to be understood
I listen to other people's feelings and ideas.  I try to see things from their viewpoint.

Habit 6:  Synergize
I value other people's strengths and I learn from them.  I get along well with others, even people who are different from me.

Habit 7:  Sharpen the saw
I take care of myself, I enjoy my family and friends and I learn in lots of different places.
