What is Leader in Me?

Leader in Me is a K-12 whole-school improvement model and process, developed by FranklinCovey in partnership with educators, and is being implemented by thousands of schools in over 50 counties worldwide. It serves as the foundational operating system for a school by creating an environment where existing programs and initiatives can thrive. Based on an inside-out approach, the process focuses on improving the collective paradigms and behaviors of students, staff, and families by introducing a blend of timeless principles from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People┬«The 4 Disciplines of Execution┬«, and more.
