Equilibrium Up’s Leadership Development Academy

6 Sessions Objectives/Description:
These sessions cover basic tenets of leadership and techniques employed by emerging leaders as student athletes. Emphasis is placed on communication skills, leadership styles, leadership qualities, handling conflicts and other aspects of leadership.
Upon completion of the sessions students should be able to 

  • explain various leadership styles
  • discuss hurdles that leaders may encounter
  • the best way to lead by example

Students should be able to detect various barriers that may prevent leaders from being successful and be relied upon to assist with building a great culture as determined by their coach, administrator, teachers or parents.
In simple terms: “Time management, be accountable, responsible, reliable, consistent, committed, be able to avoid and diffuse conflict and while being true to who you are.”
