About The Leader in Me

The Leader in Me is a whole school transformation model—developed in partnership with educators—that 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 seamless way. 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, 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.Franklin Covey 3 Circles of Greatness



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

This new definition of school greatness is represented with three overlapping circles: leadership, culture, and academics.
