5 Core Paradigms to SEE Differently

Educators begin to see their role, student potential, and the purpose of school culture in a new way.

The Leader in Me experience begins with a whole new paradigm for education. Educators rediscover their passion through Leader in Me as it redirects their focus back to a deeper understanding of student achievement.

Paradigms are powerful because they create the lens through which we see the world.

-Stephen R. Covey, Author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (1932–2012)
