What is Leader in Me ?
Leader in Me (LiM) is an evidence based, comprehensive whole-school improvement model—developed in partnership with educators—that empowers students with the leadership and life skills they need to thrive in the 21st century.
Leader in Me is more than just another program; it serves as a foundational operating system able to celebrate and encourage each school’s unique priorities, initiatives and culture. When implemented with excellence, Leader in Me redefines what it means to be a high-performing school in the 21st century.
Middle school students experience a phase of self-discovery as they learn to develop relationships with peers and make responsible decisions. Leader in Me Schools establish a culture of social-emotional learning that helps every middle school student build self-confidence and discover their true potential while pursuing academic excellence. Leader in Me helps staff create an uplifting and empowering environment that addresses social-emotional learning by developing 21st Century skills found in the Student Leadership Portrait.
Leader in Me helps schools create well-rounded learners by developing the whole-person and preparing students to become life-ready leaders.

It unites students, staff, and families around a common goal to prepare students with college, career and life-readiness skills that are necessary to thrive in today’s ever-changing, fast-paced environment.
Today Leader in Me has become a model that undergoes continual improvement, based on feedback from educators around the world, as well as the evolving needs of the education sector.
Each year, educators from Leader in Me Schools gather together for training and discussion around new advancements to improve the model and process to ensure better, more transformation results.
The Leader in Me helps students develop the skills and self-confidence they need to lead their lives and succeed in school and beyond. We at FranklinCovey Education serve K–12 and higher education through training, coaching, materials and culture-transformation processes.
