The Leader in Me® is a whole-school transformation model and process developed by FranklinCovey. The self-leadership programme empowers students to form effective habits, and inculcate the personal qualities that will enable them to thrive in the 21st Century.

Beginning in AY2018-2019, Nguyen Sieu School has incorporated these leadership principles and lessons into our coursework, traditions, systems and culture.

The Leader in Me curriculum follows the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens

  1. Be Proactive®
  2. Begin With the End in Mind®
  3. Put First Things First®
  4. Think WinWin®
  5. Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood®  
  6. Synergize®
  7. Sharpen the Saw®

Beyond learning about the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens via facilitated curriculum sessions on a weekly basis, students are encouraged to integrate the 7 Habits into their learning and daily life. Nguyen Sieu School also promotes personal leadership  through school leadership events.

In order to effectively implement the program:

  1. All teachers are trained in the The Leader in Me programme;
  2. All our homeroom teachers are specifically equipped to facilitate the 7 Habits for teenagers;
  3. The 7 Habits are integrated into subject lessons;
  4. The School organises leadership events and programmes to provide platforms for development.
