We are learning the 7 Habits of a Leader:

Habit 1: Be Proactive- You Are in Charge
 I am a responsible person. I choose my actions, attitudes, and moods. I do not blame others for my wrong actions. I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking.

Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind- Have a Plan
 
I plan ahead and set goals. I do things that have meaning and make a difference. I am an important part of my classroom and contribute to my school's mission and vision, and look for ways to be a good citizen.

Habit 3: Put First Things First- Work First, Then Play
 I spend my time on things that are most important. I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan.

Habit 4: Think Win-Win- Everyone Can Win
 
I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others want. I make deposits in other's Emotional Bank Accounts. When conflicts arise, I look for third alternatives.

Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood- Listen First
 
I listen to other people's ideas and feelings. I try to see things from their viewpoints. I listen to others without interrupting. I am confident in voicing my ideas. I look people in the eyes when talking.

Habit 6: Synergize- Together is Better
 I value other people's strengths and learn from them. I get along well with others, even people who are different than me. I work well in groups. I seek out other people's ideas to solve problems because I know that by teaming with others we can create better solutions than any one of us alone.

Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw- Balance is Best
 I take care of my body by eating right, exercising, and getting sleep. I spend time with my family and friends. I learn in lots of ways and lots of places, not just at school. I take time to find meaningful ways to help others.
