Leader In Me

These are the seven habits students are using everyday to help them become Leaders.

 

Habit 1: Be Proactive

I am a responsible person.  I take initiative.  I choose my action, and moods.  I do not blame others for my wrong actions.. I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking.

Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind

I plan ahead and set goals.  I do things that have meaning and make a difference.  I am an important part of my classroom and contribute to my school’s mission and vision.  I look for ways to be a good citizen.

Habit 3: Put First Things First

I spend my time on things that are most important.  This means I say no to things I know I should not do.  I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan.  I am disciplined and organized.

Habit 4: Think Win-Win

I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others want.  When conflicts arise, I look for a win-win solution.

Habit 5:  Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood

I listen to other people’s ideas and feelings. I try to see things from their viewpoint (paradigm).  I listen to others without interrupting.  I listen with my ears, my eyes, and my heart.  I am confident in voicing my ideas.

Habit 6: Synergize

I value other people’s strengths and learn from them.  I get along well with others, even people who are different than me.  I work well in groups.  I seek out other people’s ideas because I know that by teaming with others, we can create better solutions than what any one of us could alone.  I look for Third Alternatives.

Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw 

I ear right, exercise, and get enough sleep (body).  I learn in lots of ways and lots of places, not just at school (brain).  I spend time with family and friends (heart).  I take time to find meaningful ways to help people (soul).  I balance all four parts of myself.
