The Leader in Me Symposium brings life skills to the classroom

University Relations

The Ledaer in MeThis winter, Franklin Covey is hosting The Leader in Me Symposium Series, a professional-development conference, in 16 cities across North America. Each two-day educational leadership symposium will attract educators, government and business leaders, and community stakeholders who are looking to support schools in developing 21st-century leaders. The Symposium Series makes a stop in North Charleston, South Carolina on February 27-28.

The Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation process based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The Leader in Me produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, fewer discipline problems, and increased engagement among teachers and parents with the focus on equipping students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive in the future.

“Daily we hear stories of children leading in remarkable ways, staff collaborating like never before, and communities coming together to create transformational change,” says Sean Covey, FranklinCovey’s Education Practice Leader. “This is a lasting tribute to my father, Dr. Stephen R. Covey, who saw The Leader in Me as the pinnacle of his life’s work.”

At the symposium event attendees will learn best practices from their peers at educator-led breakout sessions, visit Leader in Me school to gain insight and ideas, and draw inspiration from thought leaders like Daniel Pink, Muriel Summers, Ron Clark, Erin Gruwell, Jon Gordon, Drew Dudley and more.

The symposium event is brought to South Carolina in partnership with Charleston Southern University. For more information, tuition, and to register visitTheLeaderinMe.org/symposium.
