Leadership Begins Here
This school year, Holy Angels School were introduced to "The 7 Habits of a Christian Leader:"
Habit 1: Be Proactive. You are in Charge.
I am a responsible persone. I take initiative. 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 in important part of
my classroom and contribute to my school's mission and vision. I 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. This means I say no to things I know I should not do. I
set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan. I am disciplined and organized.
Habit 4: Thing Win-Win. Everyone Can Win.
I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others want. I make deposits in
others' Emotional Bank Accounts. When conflicts arise, I look for third alternatives.
Habit 5: Seek first to Understand, then to be Understood. Listen before YOU Talk.
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 anyone of us can alone. I am humble.
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw. Balance Feels Best.
I take care of my body by eating right, exercising and getting sleep. I spend time with family and friends. I
learn in lots of ways and lots of places, not just at school. I find meaningful ways to help others.
