Leadership Mindware


Learning is not something you do in your spare time. It’s core to coaching.

Our mental models underlie how we make sense of everything we experience, think and do.  The problem is, they are painfully incomplete.  Unless we keep examining the models we’re using, we’ll be stuck with the ingrained sub-optimal models we have learned.

The Academy for Sport Leadership has influenced thousands of coaches worldwide.  With our Coaching for Leadership and Teamwork Intelligence approach, we take a huge conceptual leap encouraging coaches to embrace and enact new ways of thinking about leadership as relational, collaborative, and emergent.  Coaches are uncovering opportunities to drive high involvement, high commitment and high performance that fosters player and team resiliency.
