One of the major differences between Leader in Me and other schoolwide positive behavioral interventions and support programs is that students are not given tangible tokens or rewards for the expected behavior. …Schools that utilize Leader in Me teach expectations and then aim to have students display the behavior not for rewards, but because it is expected.
Dr. B. Bryant (2016) Capella University
Because of timeless principles of effectiveness and enduring paradigms, educators implementing Leader in Me are discovering lasting solutions to common challenges schools face throughout the world. Complicated issues that arise from society cannot be solved with stroke of the pen mandates. Instead, Leader in Me approaches every goal or initiate with a proven whole-school improvement model that transforms paradigms, improves behavior, and achieves measurable results. By integrating 4DX, educators can use it as a formula for addressing a variety of challenges.
