Riverview School is “SOARING” with Leaders!

We are excited to be implementing the Leader in Me philosophy in our school. The Leader In Me is based on the work of Dr. Stephen Covey’s book “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.” The goal of the Leader In Me is for students to understand that they all have the essential qualities to become leaders. The Leader In Me also helps to create a common language within a school by teaching students the Seven Habits.

The Seven Habits:

Habit 1: Be Proactive • You're in Charge

Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind • Have a Plan

Habit 3: Put First Things First • Work First, Then Play

Habit 4: Think Win-Win • Everyone Can Win

Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood • Listen Before You Talk

Habit 6: Synergize • Together Is Better

Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw • Balance Feels Best

The Leader in Me has been integrated into Riverview’s core curriculum and has become part of our school culture.
