Thought for the Week-Taken from The Leader in Me
“We only get one chance to prepare children for a world none of us can possibly predict; what are we going to do with that one chance?”
—Principal Muriel Summers, A.B. Combs Elementary
Instead of seeing children through the lens of a normal distribution curve—some kids are naturally smart and others are not—The Leader in Me paradigm sees that every child is capable, every child is a leader. This paradigm changes everything. See the image below.
Content from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a key component of the overall The Leader in Me process.The 7 Habits is a synthesis of universal, timeless principles of personal and interpersonal effectiveness, such as responsibility, vision, integrity, teamwork, collaboration and renewal, which are secular in nature and common to all people and cultures.
