Leader in Me

Empowering Leadership: TEAM Charter School - A Leader in Me Institution


Welcome to TEAM Charter School, where we are not just educators; we are cultivators of leadership. As a proud Leader in Me school, we embrace a philosophy that goes beyond traditional education. Our commitment to fostering leadership skills in every student is at the heart of our educational approach.


What is Leader in Me?

Leader in Me is an innovative, evidence-based approach to education that empowers students with the skills and mindset needed to thrive in the 21st century. Developed by FranklinCovey, the Leader in Me program is centered around the belief that every student has the potential for greatness and can be a leader, not just in the future, but right now.


Seven Habits of Highly Effective People

At the core of Leader in Me are the renowned Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. These habits serve as a framework for personal and interpersonal effectiveness, providing students with a holistic approach to leadership development:

  1. Be Proactive: Take initiative and responsibility for your actions.
  2. Begin with the End in Mind: Set clear goals and plan with the outcome in sight.
  3. Put First Things First: Prioritize and focus on what matters most.
  4. Think Win-Win: Cultivate a mindset of mutual benefit and collaboration.
  5. Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood: Develop empathetic communication.
  6. Synergize: Collaborate and work together to achieve greater results.
  7. Sharpen the Saw: Balance and renew your physical, social/emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.
