Sports is life and leadership at light speed. The student-athletes in your athletic program will be the leaders of tomorrow. Every day, they are learning more about how to lead, and coaches have a huge influence on what they learn.
Servant leadership is leading for the good of others, rather than the good of self. In other words, servant leaders care more about helping their followers succeed than they do about finding their own personal success. In the process of helping others succeed, the leaders themselves (and the organizations they represent) find success, too.
We believe that teaching tomorrow’s leaders how to be servant leaders today will benefit them far beyond the game.
LEAD uses dynamic speakers, fun competition, and timeless principles to equip student-athletes with practical tools to lead on their team, campus, and in their community. Athletes will be encouraged and equipped through an all-day, interactive conference. By the end, students and coaches will develop a game plan for making an impact in their community.
LEAD events can integrate into an existing leadership event or be a turn-key solution (you provide the students, and we’ll do the rest). For example, we integrated into existing events at Forney ISD and Northside ISD, while Northeast ISD and Mansfield ISD brought us in to host turn-key events for their districts.
Every event includes dynamic speakers, an MC, a game plan for the day, and monthly lessons for the following school year. Branded materials are also available, such as LEAD notebooks, pens, lanyards with VIP name tags, and more!
As part of the LEAD experience, coaches receive a 10-month follow-up curriculum for athletes and coaches to use on a monthly basis throughout the next school year. This includes ten 10-12 minute video lessons, which are complemented by workbooks that dive deep into the monthly topic.
The monthly LEAD Curriculum is designed to help student-athletes retain what they learned during the LEAD event, as well as to challenge them to take their servant leadership experience even further.
The event motivates and challenges students with the big ideas of servant leadership, and the monthly curriculum teaches them the nitty-gritty details of how to make an impact in their school or community. Both aspects will help these young leaders find success beyond the game.
