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.
