Tender Care Junior Academy becomes the first Kenyan school to sign onto the Franklin Covey’s Leader in Me process as it seeks to empower its students with leadership and life skills.
Rooted in Dr. Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, The Leader in Me is a transformation process that educates the child and empowers students of all ages with leadership skills.
The process, offered by Raiser Resource Group, provides a framework to help schools proactively design the culture that reflects their vision of a successful student, staff and school.
“This process seeks to help schools build sustainable practices and systems that deliver measurable results, which include confident, independent and collaborative children. The process will allow teachers to use an integrated approach that makes leadership training part of everything they do while tapping into the talents of each child and interacting with them in a way that demonstrates that all of them are capable of being leaders,” said Mr. Ian Ng’ethe, Chief Executive Officer of Raiser Resource Group.
Globally, The Leader in Me has been successfully implemented in more than 3,500 schools across 81 countries.
While The Leader in Me is not designed specifically as an academic program, many schools have reported that its goal-setting and data-tracking processes have helped to clarify academic priorities and encourage students to take greater ownership of their learning, all of which can impact academic progress.
