ACES in our Pockets An introduction to The Leader in Me program, and the 7 habits, for families.
A quick introduction:
The 7 habits of highly effective people were developed by Stephen Covey in 1989. His book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has sold more than 25 million copies world wide and is one of the best selling business books in history. In 2008, Stephen Covey developed The Leader in Me to serve as a model for use in schools, helping students become more successful in school and in life.
Students begin by learning the first three habits: be proactive, begin with the end in mind, and put first things first. This helps students develop themselves, from the inside out, before moving on to habits that involve developing their relationships with others. Next, students learn the next three habits: think win-win, seek first to understand, then to be understood, and synergize. These habits teach students strategies for working with their peers and overcoming differences. Finally, students learn the last habit, sharpen the saw, so that they can continue to renew themselves and keep a balanced life.
