Leader in Me
Qingdao No.1 International is proud to be a Leader in Me School. Leader in Me is a whole-school improvement process based on the idea that everyone can be a leader. This evidence-based approach empowers students with the leadership and life skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is one of the key frameworks of the Leader in Me process. In addition to helping students learn and apply leadership skills, the 7 Habits gives us a common language for building a supportive emotional environment. As a Leader in Me school, we focus on developing the whole child by :
- teaching LEADERSHIP to every student,
- creating a CULTURE of student empowerment,
- and aligning systems to drive results in ACADEMICS.
As a Leader in Me school, our community has adopted the following 5 paradigms in order to ensure that we are creating a culture of leadership, while also preparing our students to be life-ready leaders. With taking on the lens of these 5 paradigms, our community can truly work together to see the greatness within each and every student. We nurture our students’ abilities to see the unique leadership qualities that lies within each of them.
