Pathways to Leadership

Pathways to Leadership is an interactive coaches workshop aimed at building a better relationship between coaches and their athletes.

During the past 20 years of leadership training, over 3,000 exceptional student athletes throughout the U.S. have discussed at great length, their coaches and what they believe can be done to improve it.

20 YEARS of in depth discussion and interaction with over 3,000 of the top student high school athletes in the country...

Thus, Pathway to Leadership has been created. These teenagers asked Ken Braid and Bill Walker to go to high schools and express their concerns, strive for improvements, and emphasize how influential coaches are in their lives.
