Captain Performance Reviews
Captains and athlete leaders have the unique opportunity to define the success of a team. The effectiveness of team captains directly impacts the team’s win-loss record and yet a high proportion of coaches do not provide their captains with any leadership development.
To learn and grow as leaders, athletes must have the opportunity to reflect honestly on the impact they’ve had on the people around them. The Athlete Leader 360 is the leading Performance Review Service and has been designed to give Captains and Athlete Leaders the development opportunities they need.

How the Athlete Leader 360 Works
The Athlete Leader 360 Performance Review is available at different levels of service, from self-service to full consultation. Here are the key steps involved.
- The process starts with the captain (or athlete leader) taking a 64-question survey and answering five written questions, all online.
- Next, they consider the best people to invite to contribute to this review. These contributors, known as ‘observers’, will provide their feedback on the captain’s performance for the season.
- We then provide the captain with an email to forward to the chosen observers which explains their involvement and contains a link to the survey the Observer can complete online. The survey they complete is very similar to the one the captain completed, except the observers answer it about how they see the captain’s performance.
- Once all the surveys are complete (we provide all administrative support), the Athlete Leader 360 Report is provided to the individual.
- We then organize for a consultant to debrief the results with them.
From there, we have various levels of additional support and on-going development as required.

AthleteDISC and the Athlete Leader 360 Review
Fundamentally, they are both useful tools for further developing self-awareness and supporting the athlete’s professional and personal development. Both start by the athlete completing a survey about how they see themselves in their sporting role and both have the ability to include others – we call them ‘observers’.
The Athlete Leadership 360 focuses on eight leadership skills and does encourage those working with and around the athlete to be actively involved by providing feedback about their leadership role. The AthleteDISC Profile is a behavioral assessment, which identifies the athlete’s preferred sporting behaviors, their personal preferences and style. Using the information within the AthleteDISC Profile report, you can be more effective with your communication, build stronger relationships with coaching staff, fellow-athletes, management and others, and have a deeper understanding of your motivation, strengths and areas for development. With the AthleteDISC, ‘observers’ are an optional inclusion whereas with the Athlete Leadership 360 they are a critical part of the process.
