Program seeks to develop global leaders one child at a time
Nairobi, November 11th 2016 – Kenyan schools will now be able to access a leadership program that seeks to empower primary and secondary school children with leadership and life skills following the launch of the Franklin Covey’s Leader in Me program.
Rooted in Dr. Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, The Leader in Me program is an everyday ubiquitous leadership development that creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.
The program, offered by Raiser Resource Group, provides a logical, sequential and balanced process to help schools proactively design the culture that reflects their vision of the ideal school.
“Our schools are focused on preparing our children academically that life skills have been put on the back burner. This program offers life skills that teach our children on how to be independent and become self-sufficient,” said Mr. Ian Ng’ethe, Chief Executive Officer of Raiser Resource Group.
Globally, The Leader in Me has been successfully implemented in more than 3,000 schools across 50 countries that have consistency reported:
-Increased students’ self-confidence, teamwork, initiative, creativity, leadership, problem-solving, communication, diversity awareness and academic performance
-Improved school culture
-Dramatic decreases in disciplinary issues
-Increased teacher pride and engagement
-Greater parent satisfaction and involvement in children’s school work
“We are introducing this program because we believe that every Kenyan child is capable to be a leader. This program will allow teachers to use an integrated approach that makes leadership training part of everything they do.” said Mr. Ng’ethe.
While The Leader in Me is not designed specifically as an academic program, many schools have reported that its goal-setting and data-tracking processes have helped to clarify academic priorities and encourage students to take greater ownership over their education, all of which can impact academic progress.
