You will be hearing about the The Leader in Me Program which utilizes the 7 Habits of Happy Kids this year as part of our school counseling program. This program is used to encourage students to recognize themselves as leaders in their school and community. Below are a list of the habits we will be learning about and practicing this year.
Seven Habits of Happy Kids
By Sean Covey
Habit 1: Be Proactive
I am responsible. I choose my attitudes actions and moods. I do the right thing, even if no one is looking.
Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
I plan ahead and set goals. I look for ways to be a good citizen.
Habit 3: Put First Things First
I spend my time on things that are most important. I say no to things I know I should not do. I am organized and focused on my plan.
Habit 4: Think Win-Win
I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others want. I look for win-win solutions to conflicts that arise.
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
I listen to others feelings and ideas and try to see things from their viewpoint. I am confident and respectful when voicing my own ideas.
Habit 6: Synergize
I value others strengths and learn from them. I get along well with others and work well in groups..
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
I eat right and get enough sleep. I learn in lots of ways and in lots of places, not just at school. I spend time with family and friends. I find meaningful ways to help people.
