The Sports Industry Needs More Leaders. You Can Become One.

Masters in Sports LeadershipThere is a common belief that leadership traits are something you are born with, either you have ‘it’ or you don’t, but that is just flat out wrong.

Leaders need to be built.

The problem is so many people confuse what it means to be a leader.

They think the person who is loudest or most visible in the room holds the leadership torch, but that is an overly-simplistic view of what a leader is.

In sports business leaders set goals, make strategic plans, build teams and empower others to make decisions. Leaders know how to grow the people around them.

I had a boss once who explained to me his job as the leader of our organization was to hire the right people, structure the right team, set the company objectives and goals while holding everyone accountable. He was the leader and everyone knew it.

But he wasn't born this way, he learned, he observed other executives and early in his career he pursued a Masters in Sports Leadership.

It paid off.
