Coaches Who Lift Coaches
The profession of coaching goes beyond just how we develop our athletes. The role of a coach extends into building the future of our sport, through developing the next generation of coaches. In this webinar we looked at a very important aspect of a Head Coach’s role, helping their Assistant Coaches reach their own coaching goals.
Our host, Bo Hanson, was joined by four very special guests who all are experts in ‘lifting coaches’, including Becky Carlson, Head Coach of Women’s Rugby at Quinnipiac University; Matt Thurmond, Head Coach of Men ’s Golf at Arizona State University; Nicole M. LaVoi, Associate Director at the Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport; and Tim McLaren, 7x Olympic Rowing Head Coach. They have consistently and persistently helped their assistant coaches become head coaches for themselves, not just a couple of times, but many, many times. Their stories, perspectives, advice, and guidance are invaluable for Head Coaches, aspiring Assistant Coaches, and anyone working in this space.
OCTOBER 2021 OPEN WEBINAR
Cautionary Tales and Exemplary Team Strategies
Hosted by Bo Hanson, this webinar served to create awareness of the critical issues which will derail your season if you do not proactively manage them. Bo presented the big coaching and team issues that he most often addresses with clients in their quest for success, along with sharing strategies he helps clients implement to win more consistently.
This is a practical ‘how-to’ session, inspired by the frequent comment “if you could sit in my chair and see what I see…” Some of the topics covered will be accountability, managing standards, dealing with playing time, recruiting with intention, what winning looks like, and what underpins success. This also includes the importance of team dynamics and the impact this has on the roles your athletes play. Bo shares, “In more than 20 years of working with teams in both sport and business, I have collected my thoughts on what I see as the biggest issues that a coach must manage on a daily basis as they navigate their teams through the course of a season and drive their winning team culture.”

Choosing Captains and Leadership Development within your Team
If you waiver on how to select your team captains or leadership group, or are looking for more effective ways to develop leadership within your team, or these topics fascinate you, then this webinar with Bo Hanson is for you! Every coach knows the value of having capable leaders and captains on their team. We all know it helps positively impact team success and the type of culture which can deliver sustainable results over time, and it ensures future leaders are developed through positive role models.
Often, teams have more than the standard captain and vice-captain duo, appointing a senior group of leaders to steer the team from within – we explore the pros and cons of the size and roles. Importantly, we tackle the different ways captains and leaders are selected to avoid a ‘popularity contest’, and we address the challenges and opportunities of developing leadership skills. This session will also focus on understanding leadership styles, and exploring real life strategies to enrich your team’s success on and off ‘the field’.
