Emerging & evolving leaders

Leadership is always an on-going process. Teams change, coaches change, players come & go. Therefore our ‘Emerging & Evolving Leaders’ program takes your team through a series of identified traits of leadership. Leaders must reflect the team principles, game plan, coaches’ instructions and be able to think on the move in games, at training & even away from the club. This can involve being mentored as well as mentoring others. Focusing on setting standards, communication, decisions under pressure, overcoming challenges, positive re-enforcement, encouragement, providing feedback & attitude form the pillars of the leadership sessions.
