Description

The Leader in Me is the story of a growing number of extraordinary schools, parents, and business leaders around the world who are preparing a generation of children to truly lead their own lives and meet the great challenges and opportunities of the 21st Century. The best way to prepare the next generation for the future is by emphasizing the value of communication, cooperation, initiative, and unique, individual talent - for nothing undermines confidence more than comparison. Whether in the classroom or at home, it is never too early to start applying leadership skills to everyday life. Drawing on the many techniques and examples that have already seen incredible success around the world, The Leader in Me shows how easy it is to incorporate these skills into daily life. It is a timely answer to many of the challenges facing today's young people, businesses, parents, and educators - one that is perfectly matched to the global demands of the 21st Century.

Professional reviews

"In Stephen Covey's latest audio, the seven habits of highly effective people sound as strong and relevant as ever. Along with an insightful review of each habit, the personal growth icon tells how an elementary school principal and her staff taught these transformative principles to school children and their parents. The goal was to shift them from a fact-based, testing-focused curriculum to one that would foster creativity and character traits such as honesty, integrity, teamwork, initiative, and collaboration. Though Covey's voice sounds less energetic than it once did, the depth of his wisdom and commitment to developing people can be heard in every word and phrase. A worthy reminder of precious truths and an inspiring story of how innovative teachers can make a difference. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
