At Ruby Duncan Elementary, we will be introducing the “Leader in Me” program with a full implementation during the 2018-19 school year. This program focuses on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Leader in Me seeks to develop the whole person – mind, body, heart, and spirit. It starts with the belief that there is greatness in every student and every staff member. The following are the 7 Habits and what they mean:
Be Proactive – Don’t be reactive. Make choices and think through the consequences.
Begin with the End in Mind- Know what you want and how you are going to achieve it.
Put First Things First – Prioritize what you need to accomplish.
Think Win-Win – Listen to others ideas, be willing to consider new ideas, and compromise.
Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood – Listen with your head and heart before you speak.
Synergize - Together we can always accomplish more.
Sharpen the Saw - Live a balanced life. Care for your body, heart, mind, and spirit.
