"Lead Like a Pro" with Matthew Raidbard
Wednesday, September 14, 2022
In this program geared toward athletic coaches at all levels of sports, Dr. Matthew Raidbard will discuss the importance of coaches viewing themselves as leaders and making intentional leadership choices. This program is designed to introduce coaches to leadership practice, and to help them understand the impact their leadership choices can have both positively and negatively on the athletes they coach. This program is for coaches at all levels of sports but particularly youth sports coaches who are often parents or volunteers and have not had the opportunity to receive much if any coach-related leadership training.
This event will be held on Zoom. To join us, please register online

Dr. Matthew Raidbard has spent the past 15 years as a men’s college basketball coach and senior level college athletics administrator. While pursuing his Doctorate in Educational Leadership, he conducted research on athletic coach leadership practice that led him to determine that coaches were not being provided the tools and resources required to take on the outsized leadership role they were asked to take on for their athletes and team. This discovery was the inspiration for his new book, “Lead Like A Pro: Effective Leadership Styles For Athletic Coaches,” where he provides coaches, at all levels of sports, with tools to enhance their leadership practice and become more effective leaders.
