The Leader in Me/7 Habits of Highly Effective People

The Leader in Me

Beginning in the 2013-14 school year, Richfield ELC and Richfield PSA became a Stephen Covey The Leader in Me school, incorporating Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits for Highly Effective People.  The ultimate goal of the school is to become a Lighthouse School,  which means RELC and RPSA have fulfilled the criteria established by the Franklin Covey Education group. Students and staff learn to use a common language and build an understanding of how to work effectively, independently and interdependently, in all aspects of life, not just at school.

The 7 Habits

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People 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)
