Leader in me

Always important to remember...the boss and the leader are not necessarily the same thing! One of the life lessons from the dogs is about leading from behind, or within the team. My lead dogs could be anywhere in the team, and still influence and lead the team. Likewise, I as Iditarod's Littlest Musher, was in the very back, but the dogs always looked to me for leadership, no matter what. They needed to know I had their backs and had the situation in hand. Then they could relax and just go!

These pages can be used in your students' Leadership Notebooks or Data Notebooks as part of the Leader in Me program. I also include a page for Teacher Contact Information and Daily Schedule in my Leadership Notebooks, but I did not include them in this set so that you can include your own. There are informative pages for students and parents, as well as goal setting and goal tracking pages.
