Leader In Me is an evidence-based, comprehensive school improvement model that empowers students with the leadership and life skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. The program unites students, staff, and families to help schools create well rounded people and life-ready learners. With this common goal in mind, schools work to prepare students for college and career, and equip them with life-readiness skills that are necessary in today’s ever-changing world.
Leader In Me is based on the theory of change known as the See-Do-Get cycle. When you change the way you see things, it influences what you do, and then the results you get. The five core paradigms of the program help educators begin to see their role, student potential, and the purpose of school culture in a whole new way.
Leader In Me upholds the ideas that everyone can be a leader and everyone has genius. Students and teachers are encouraged to begin change in themselves in order to impact the larger system and empower students to lead their own learning. Finally, Leader In Me doesn’t focus solely on academic achievement, but strives to develop the whole person.
