Habitudes Book 1

Every student has leadership potential because leadership is influence.

Specifically designed for Generation Y, Habitudes is a fun, creative and engaging way for the next generation to learn and practice leadership. Habitudes teaches timeless character and leadership principles through the power of an image, a conversation and an experience.

Habitudes helps students:

  • Break out of the herd mentality to influence others in positive ways.
  • Create environments that are conducive to higher grades.
  • Raise empathy and minimize bullying.
  • Capitalize on personal strengths to be career-ready upon graduation.
  • Develop critical thinking skills that produce better life choices, such as choosing healthy friends, improving study habits, and setting meaningful goals.

Habitudes helps teachers and parents:

  • Develop students who take initiative to improve their school’s culture.
  • Gain the attention of a younger generation so that they will listen to you.
  • Guide unprepared adolescents toward productive adulthood.
  • Develop students who think and act like authentic leaders.
  • Reduce disciplinary problems so that teachers are freed to invest more
    time in students.

Habitudes is the best program for first year students and beyond. It is a tool that encourages and teaches deeper thinking and dialogue. You can’t go wrong if you want to serve your students with the most cutting-edge, researched, and student-savvy program I’ve seen anywhere.  Using Habitudes revitalized my teaching and led to a greater understanding of the students we face in the classroom.”

Sharon Taylor – Professor – Saint Martin’s University

“As a former captain of the University of Alabama women’s tennis team, my training in Habitudes proved valuable in leading the team to a Top-10 ranking in 2012. The principles I learned extended far beyond student leadership and set me up for success in my life after tennis.”

Courtney McLane – Academic All-American – University of Alabama

“The work of Tim Elmore and the Growing Leaders team is having a very profound impact on our school.  Tim’s book Generation iY has been a foundational read for our faculty and staff.  We use the Habitudes curriculum on a regular basis and the images have already gained a foothold as an integral part of our work with our students.”

Steve Helmich – President – Cathedral High School – Indianapolis, IN
