FranklinCovey's The Leader in Me Symposium Series, a two-day educational leadership symposium that attracts educators, government and business leaders, and community stakeholders who are looking to support schools, makes a stop in Lafayette on February 20-21 in partnership with United Way of Acadiana.
"We are thrilled to have a hand in bringing The Leader in Me Symposium Series to Lafayette," said Sarah Berthelot, United Way of Acadiana's chief operating officer. "The Leader in Me has had an amazing effect on schools across the world, and this event is a great opportunity to learn how The Leader in Me can support local schools."
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 a Leader in Me school to gain insight and ideas, and draw inspiration from keynote speakers Muriel Summers and Erin Gruwell.
