Author Talk “Lead Like a Pro: Effective Leadership Styles for Athletic Coaches” with Dr. Matthew Raidbard, Wednesday, September 7, 6:30 PM via Zoom

Author Talk “Learn How To Lead Like a Pro: Effective Leadership Styles for Athletic Coaches” with Dr. Matthew Raidbard, Morris Public Library, Wednesday, September 7, 6:30 PM, via Zoom.

The program will provide coaches, at all levels of sports, with the tools to be more intentional and effective leaders for their athletes and teams.

With each passing year, athletic coaches are asked to take on increased leadership responsibilities for their athletes and team. However, they don’t always have the opportunity to receive the necessary coach-related leadership education and training that would provide them with the knowledge and tools required to effectively coach the team, manage the athletes and parents, and deal with any unexpected conflicts or tensions that arise during the season. This talk is designed specifically for athletic coaches to provide them with foundational leadership knowledge and teach them techniques they can use to practice the best leadership style and behaviors that align with their personal values and beliefs. During this program, Dr. Raidbard will give an introduction to leadership practice, and discuss the importance of coaches viewing themselves as leaders and making intentional leadership choices.

Additionally, the author will talk about how coaches can determine what the best leadership style and behaviors are for them to practice based on their personal values and beliefs. This program is also designed to help coaches understand the impact their leadership choices can have both positively and negatively on the athletes they coach.

Matthew Raidbard has been a men’s college basketball coach and senior level college athletics administrator for the past 15 years. He holds a Doctorate in Educational Leadership.
