On Monday, April 24th, South Newton student leaders hosted over 50 adult leaders from the Catawba County community. The focus of the day was Leader in Me and the 7 Habits. Students spent time teaching the adults the 7 Habits of leadership and personal effectiveness and shared how the habits have made a positive difference in each of their lives. The students also shared their individual leadership notebooks and WIGs (wildly important goals). Other activities of the day included a tour of the school and South Newton’s awesome classrooms while focusing on individual and collective mission statements. The adult leaders ended their visit with “cookies and cola” and a Q&A session/discussion panel hosted by the student leaders from pre-kindergarten through 5th grade.
The adult leaders are employees of EZWay Auto Sales and have been participating in 4D-360 Leadership Development over the past year with Catawba County leadership expert Bruce Schronce, President of StrongLead.
