The Leader in Me

One of the world’s most influential writers, Stephen R. Covey presents an inspiring model for teaching personal leadership to all ages – even to students as young as five years old.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a phenomenon that has spread through corporations, governments and non-profit institutions across the globe, profoundly influencing organizational success and personal effectiveness. Millions of copies have been sold and even more lives have been changed by the timeless teachings.

In 1999, A.B. Combs Elementary School in Raleigh, NC decided to apply the invaluable lessons of the 7 Habits to its curriculum and culture. The results were stunning. In just over one year, average end-of-year passing grades for students catapulted from 84 to 94 percent. Discipline problems dropped significantly. Parents began reporting incredible shifts in their children’s attitudes and behaviors. Students began problem solving and engaging in more positive ways with each other.

Today, the school’s success continues to soar, and now other schools around the world have adopted the approach and are experiencing equally inspiring results. Business leaders are jumping on board to support this truly unique process that holds great potential for empowering students with the skills they need to thrive in the twenty-first century.

The Leader in Me captures the story of how this all came about and how it is continuing to spread. An inspiration for schools, business leaders, and parents alike, it demonstrates how these ageless life principles can have a profound impact on every facet of life. You are never too young or too old to become a real leader, and Stephen R. Covey is here to show you how.

Stephen R. Covey is an internationally respected leadership authority, family expert, teacher organizational consultant, founder of the former Covey Leadership Center, and Vice Chairman of Franklin Covey Co.
