About this event
Leadership is about the ability to motivate people to challenge themselves and meet goals. Each of us has a personal and unique leadership style which can be attained and developed through a profound understanding of oneself, our core values, behaviours and actions. Coaching oneself towards finding his or her own leadership philosophy is a journey of self-development and continuous reflection. When coaches have a better understanding of their own qualities they are able to manage their team in a better way. When athletes gain this understanding, they are able to manage themselves better.
