With all that is going on across the globe—where leaders and individuals are having to change the way they work, function and manage their organization—these timeless principles are as helpful as ever.

What is The Leader in Me?

Leader in Me is a 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. The process helps students learn how to become self-reliant, take initiative, plan ahead, set and track goals, do their homework, prioritize their time, manage their emotions, be considerate of others, express their viewpoint persuasively, resolve conflicts, find creative solutions, value differences, and live a balanced life. 

It utilizes several leadership, social-emotional learning, quality, and educational models and processes from past and current thought leaders. It includes The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, a key component of the overall process, and is a synthesis of universal, timeless principles of personal, interpersonal, and organizational effectiveness, such as responsibility, vision, integrity, teamwork, collaboration, and renewal. Leader in Me is having a significant, measurable impact on schools all over the world and in the lives of millions of students, parents, teachers, and administrators.

Liam D. Auliciems: Australia,Teaching, Teacher Support, and Issues with EduBusiness, parts 1 and 2 - Episode 310

PRACE_2_480.jpg 

Liam D. Auliciems talks with me about life in Australia, teaching, teacher support and issues with edubusiness. This is episode 310 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

Liam D. Auliciems is an education entrepreneur, registered teacher, postgrad Masters student and academic researcher from Australia. 

After seeing first-hand the dismal state of affairs of beginning teachers across the world, Liam co-founded PRAC-E to help find a solution to the ‘teacher drought’. 

PRAC-E has hosted several 'PRAC-E Symposiums' and teacher panels, and have created regular digital media to support beginning teachers. Through PRAC-E's work, Liam has been the subject of a nationwide story on the ABC News, as well as being a special guest on several Education Podcasts in Australia and the United States. 

Liam's most recent goal is to aid teachers wanting to start their own media channels, professional development training program or 'edu-business'. This unregulated business world can be scary and unforgiving for teachers, as he found out during PRAC-E's growth. Liam hopes to be an agent of change in the educational sphere, and continue to challenge traditional ideas.
