Stephen R. Covey's book, The Leader in Me, identifies an approach that applies the concepts from his 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to whole school transformation.
The website description for The Leader in Me: How Schools and Parents Around the World are Inspiring Greatness, One Child at a Time says:
The Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation model that acts like the operating system of a computer—it improves performance of all other programs. Based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, The Leader in Me produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, fewer discipline problems, and increased engagement among teachers and parents. Better yet, The Leader in Me equips students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive in the 21st-century economy.
What would be possible if your school was filled with students who were responsible, showed initiative, were creative, knew how to set goals and meet them, got along with people of various backgrounds and cultures, and could resolve conflicts and solve problems?
