What Top ADs and Coaches are saying...

10“I’ve been in the business 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. You will see a change in student-athletes in terms of leadership on the field, in the classroom, and everywhere else.”

JEFF LONG, Arkansas Director of Athletics, College Football Selection Committee Chairman


"Jeff Janssen’s work with our student-athletes through the Michigan Leadership Academy has been tremendous. His ability to communicate with our student-athletes, along with his ability to draw student-athletes into deeper discussions about leadership is outstanding. We are fortunate to work with Jeff and experience firsthand the way he gives student-athletes insight into how they think, how they perceive, how they process, and how they can become great teammates and performers."

JOHN BEILEIN, Michigan Men's Basketball Coach

“The Carolina Leadership Academy is one of the finest things our athletic department has done in the over thirty years I have been here. I can clearly see the program's impact on and off the field.”

ANSON DORRANCE, North Carolina Women's Soccer Coach, 22-time National Champions
