Leader in Me

Developing Life-Ready Leaders

Leader in Me is a whole-school transformational model that empowers students, staff and families with the mindset, knowledge and skills to be life-ready leaders. This unique approach to student-led learning applies effective social and emotional skills in real-life situations.

Principals and district leaders report the number one challenge in educating students today is the escalation in social-emotional and behavioral health needs as well as the emotional well-being of staff.

Leader in Me coaches work directly with school, district and community leaders to:

  • enhance efficacy of administrators
  • build leadership capacity among faculty and staff
  • encourage all students to see themselves as leaders
  • adapt to a remote-learning environment

Evidence-Based results


  • School culture
  • Student attendance
