Franklin Covey | Education

Our mission is to enable greatness in students, teachers and schools everywhere.

The Leader in Me is a whole school transformation model from FranklinCovey, a global company specializing in performance improvement and helping organizations achieve results that require a change in human behavior. This model was developed in partnership with educators and empowers students with the skills they need to thrive in the 21st century.
Distinct in several ways, The Leader in Me:

  • Starts from a powerful premise—that every child possesses unique strengths and has the ability to be a leader—and therefore shapes the views of staff to value and develop the whole child.
  • Integrates leadership development into existing school programs, curricula, and traditions in a way that does not feel like “one more thing.” More than a program, The leader in Me serves as a foundational operating system for the school, improving relationships, transforming culture, and highly motivating staff members and students.
  • Impacts all stakeholders starting first with the staff of a school, and then moving out to students, their families, and the community at large. This inside-out approach is the key ingredient to successfully creating positive change.

 In summary, The Leader in Me is based on paradigms, content, and practices that, when implements with excellence, transform how a school community approaches education and redefines what school greatness means for the 21st century.
