Student athletes are regularly ascribed the status of “leader” in their schools and communities, yet how many kids truly understand what it means to be a successful leader? In most cases the assumption is that if you are a successful student athlete, then you will be a responsible, motivated, resilient leader in the school and throughout the community! Obviously this is simply not always true, and it should not be surprising when you think how rarely student athletes are actually taught about effective leadership skills.

On this program Dr. Stankovich candidly discusses key elements pertaining to leadership that are designed to help student athletes improve in many areas, including self confidence, communication skills, decision making, responsibility, and many other aspects pertaining to proactive, successful leadership.
