Our Future Leaders


May 17, 2016

leadershipleaderI was invited to attend Seaview Elementary for their first "Leadership Day" on Thursday, May 12th.  As a community leader, I felt it was important to support one of our wonderful Edmonds schools and provide our future leaders with encouragement and an understanding of the roles they will take in the future.


The students showcased the leadership skills they have gained based on the Stephen Covey "7 Habits of Highly Effective People" and "The Leader in Me" programs they have gone through in recent months.  It was great to see the children, kindergarten through sixth, sharing what they learned and how these skills are being applied in school and at home. Guests were treated to singing, musical performances, tours and presentations.


The seven (7) habits are: Be Proactive, Begin with the end in mind, Put first things first, Think win-win, Seek first to understand then to be understood, Synergize, Sharpen the saw.


I encourage you all, as leaders in our community, to think about passing on your knowledge by mentoring and engaging with the next generation of business leaders.
