Sports Leadership Development Series
Our popular Sports Leadership Development Series provides athletes, coaches, and athletic administrators with a practical, progressive, and proven sports leadership development training program that spans a student-athlete’s entire career.
The comprehensive and cutting edge curriculum targets college and high school student-athletes at their specific level of leadership development. The series starts with teaching the critical self leadership skills of responsibility (Level 1), accountability (Level 2), and commitment (Level 3) and then progresses on to the more advanced skills of effective team leadership (Level 4) and building a championship culture (Level 5).
So no matter where your athletes might be in terms of their personal leadership development, you’ll have the appropriate level of training for them. (Click on the covers or titles below to learn more...)
The Athlete’s Responsibility Manual trains student-athletes how to take full responsibility for themselves by owning their choices, decisions, and actions. The six-module program is geared for all freshmen to complete as early as possible during their first year - or as a great summer read before they start school.
LEVEL 2: Team Accountability - The Teammate's Accountability Manual (Coming Fall 2017)
The Teammates’s Accountability Manual shows athletes how their attitudes and actions significantly impact their teammates’ and coaches’ success and failure. This six-module program extends and expands on the material in Level 1 and can be done with all freshmen in the first semester of their first year. (Available Fall of 2017)
The Athlete’s Commitment Manual trains student-athletes how to completely commit to their task, training, and team through the use of the powerful Commitment Continuum™ tool. This six-module program can be done with all freshmen in the second semester of their first year.
Designed for emerging team leaders, The Team Captain’s Leadership Manual is a 10-module leadership development program that trains student-athletes how to be effective Leaders by Example and Vocal Leaders. Use it early on with your sophomores who demonstrate leadership potential.
Designed for established team leaders, The Team Captain’s Culture Manual teaches captains how to best partner with the coaches to build and sustain a Championship Culture in your program. Use this 10-module, advanced leadership development program with your junior and senior team captains.
“I’ve been in the business for over 30 years and there are a lot of different programs I’ve seen. What the Janssen Sports Leadership Center does is the best out there. It builds on itself. It is not a one-time program. You will see a change in student-athletes in terms of leadership on the field, in the classroom, and everywhere else.”
