When we look at leaders in any endeavor, we often see their success critically defined by their leadership philosophy, and when it comes to sport coaches it is exactly the same. Having a defined coaching philosophy is key to effective coaching (and leadership), but the process of developing and understanding your own philosophy is often sidelined. When your team relies on your performance as a coach as much as they do on technical execution for achieving a winning outcome, this process is a priority.

To determine what the defining factors are of a successful mentoring program, we explore some of the top initiatives from different corners of the world. While ratios, cohorts, sports, and program structures differ within these formalized mentoring programs, what remains consistent are the considerable benefits reaped by all involved.

Over 80 coaches attended the two-day live and online academy developed exclusively for women high school coaches of all sports, at all levels. Hosted by WeCOACH and modeled after their longstanding premier NCAA Women Coaches Academy, the overwhelmingly successful academy was both an educational opportunity and a chance to consolidate connections amongst a growing community of women coaches at the high school level.

Fresh new covers featuring a sweeping collection of sporting images, are among the primarily aesthetic changes to Athlete Assessments’ DISC Profile Reports. The new look reports including; AthleteDISC Profile, CoachDISC Profile, Sport ManagerDISC Profile, Team Dynamic Report, and the series of Performance Review 360 Reports, were launched and went live in July 2021.

Captain or leadership group, how can you determine what the right structure for your team is? Who should be appointed as the leader and, what exactly does the person in the leadership role do? These were some of the critical leadership questions we unpacked in our recent open webinar, ‘Choosing Captains and Leadership Development Within Your Team’.

“I rarely choose the easy route just because something might be hard.” It’s a simple and succinct statement of fact, but it also serves as a quick character portrait summing up Dr. Scott Douglas, a 2x NWBA Champion, 4x player for the U.S. Men's World Cup Tennis Team, 3x Paralympian, coach, and Associate Professor at University of Northern Colorado.

We spoke to Dr. Jacob Tingle, Assistant Professor of the Practice of Business Administration at Trinity University, about creating teaching traction through a podcast series for his course content.

We're excited to share Bo's chat with hosts of the Hardwood Hustle Podcast TJ and Sam, along with longtime friend of Athlete Assessments, Lisa who introduces Bo on the episode.

Kinzee Salo, Teaching Specialist in Coaching at the University of Minnesota, and Assistant Men's Tennis Coach at Gustavus Adolphus College, speaks to the philosophy of teaching coaching as a people management skill.

We’re super excited to share Bo’s chat with John O’Sullivan, Host of the Way of Champions Podcast. On the Podcast, Bo and John talk about a variety of interesting topics, from utilising failures in childhood and adolescence as fuel for success in adulthood, to setting goals and defining values with your teammates, and why lacking clarity in your role leads to a bad team culture.
