    The Leader In Me

     “Let Your LEADER Light Shine!” 

     Our goal is to build a community of leaders through the use of Dr. Stephen R. Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and other leadership principles. The Habits are:

    Habit 1: Be Proactive® • You’re in Charge

    Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind® • Have a Plan

    Habit 3: Put First Things First® • Work First, Then Play

    Habit 4: Think Win-Win® • Everyone Can Win

    Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood® • Listen Before You Talk

    Habit 6: Synergize® • Together Is Better

    Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw® • Balance Feels Best


    Burnside Elementary's Leader In Me initiative was spotlighted on Richland One TV.
