Principles and paradigms

“Leadership is a choice, not a position” 

“Leadership is communicating people's worth and potential so clearly that they are inspired to see it in themselves.”

Stephen R. Covey

Change comes in the form of a process which takes time, thus becoming more sustainable.

We want a world where people are kind to one another.

Trust

We trust ourselves and people around us.

Paradigms

Albert Einstein said that “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” In other words, if we want to solve the problems in education today, we cannot think with an industrial age paradigm.

Dr. Stephen R. Covey, the author of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has put forward a series of new paradigms that we apply today in education through the Leader in Me process.

How do we perceive the world, how do we perceive others, how do we perceive our students, how do we perceive our roles as teachers, educators, or directors?

The way we see these things determines what we do, how we treat others. If we want to start to treat others differently, we first need to look at them in a different way.
