Leader In Me

What is "Leader In Me" all About?

  •  At Sheiko, we are "Building Leaders and Learners One Student at a Time".

    It is our belief that all of our students possess skills and talents that make them leaders. The definition of leadership is "communicating people's worth and potential so clearly that they are inspired to see it in themselves." As we continue on our journey and expose our students to the 7 habits, those habits will become a part of their everyday lives. They will begin to see them in all aspects of life both at school and at home.

    Habits 1-3 make up our private victory, they start with ourselves.

    Habits 4-6 lead us to interdependence with others.

    Finally, habit 7 is about taking care of ourselves and self-renewal.

    1. Be Proactive - "You're in Charge"
    2. Begin with the End in Mind - "Have a Goal and Create a Plan"
    3. Put First Things First - "Work First, Then Play" 
    4. Think Win-Win - "Everyone Can Win"
    5. Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood - "Listen before you Speak"
    6. Synergize - "Together is Better"
    7. Sharpen the Saw - "Balance Feels Best"

     The books listed below can provide more information about this journey we are embarking here at Sheiko.
