Leader In Me
February Leader In Me Habit 4
We are learning about Habit 4: Think Win-Win.
Think Win-Win is the belief that everyone can win. It’s not you or me, it’s both of
us. It’s a belief that there are enough good things for everyone. It’s being able to
be happy when good things happen to other people.
To be able to Think Win-Win, it is important to be strong in Habits 1, 2, and 3.
Habit 1: Be Proactive
Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
Habit 3: Put First Things First
The first three habits give us the strong foundation to be leaders of ourselves and our choices.
Habit 4: Think Win-Win is the first of the three habits that address relationships.
They teach us how to better interact with others.
Books that reinforce Habit 4:
• Wait Till Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn
• Hiawatha, Messenger of Peace by Dennis Brindell Fradin
Expect your child to use words and phrases like think win-win, sharing,
abundance, and being happy for others. You can encourage your child by using
some of these words at home. You may have an opportunity to share your
feelings with your child about Think Win-Win.
