The program aims at bringing out the best through training, coaching, materials, and culture-transformation processes thus helping every child evolve into a leader in his own right. The program empowers every student to become a leader, fostering adaptability and resilience in today's dynamic world.

  •  Create a culture of trust and engagement. 
  •  Empower students to lead their own lives, and make a difference with others. 
  •  Provide students tools to better achieve goals. 
  •  Develop student voice.

1. “The Leader in me program has had a phenomenal impact on the students of Vaels International School, Injambakkam, Chennai for classes IV to VIII. It envisages the 7 Habits of Stephen Covey as part of their curriculum through effective teaching sessions. The classes are extremely vibrant and promising with value-based lessons and children being reiterated with the 7 Habits through videos, worksheets, role-plays and discussions. The team of resource teachers frequently undergo training programs to enrich themselves and keep themselves updated with the nuances of the program making it highly effective and successful.”

Thus, Leader in Me principles very well align with our vision Education Today Leadership Tomorrow.”
