With the support of the Franklin Covey Association Parktone Primary is focused on how we as educators can create leaders, one child at a time. The Leader in Me initiative based on Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, is embedded across all subject areas, and is demonstrated and taught daily.
The habits are:
Be Proactive – Take responsibility for your life. Choose to act deliberately and take responsibility for your actions. Listen to your language and be proactive rather than reactive.
Begin With the End in Mind – Define your mission and goals in life. Live your life with hope and purpose. Know what you want before you begin.
Put First Things First – Prioritise and do the most important things first. Make the most effective use of your time by prioritising. Work smarter, not harder.
Think Win-Win – Have an ‘everyone can win’ attitude. Build successful relationships with others by finding a solution that works for all.
Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood – Listen to people sincerely. Hear others with your eyes, ears and heart. Only 7% of communication is verbal, 93% is body language, tone and feeling.
Synergise – Work together to achieve more. Two or more people can work together to create a better solution than either one could create alone. Synergy requires valuing people’s uniqueness and individuality.
Sharpen the Saw – Renew yourself regularly. Balance all four dimensions of your life: body, mind, heart and soul.
