Top-Down Leadership: The Role of the Coach in Teaching Leadership

Why do we still see rude, classless and even racist players? How do we teach these young athletes about being a real leader on the field and in life? What's the role of a coach throughout all this? Brett Basham, Leadership Development Consultant, played collegiate and professional baseball and is the coauthor of the book "The Leadership Clock". Learn from Basham as he helps coaches understand their role in setting the tone in the clubhouse or on the sidelines.

TeamSnap Podcast host, Emily Cohen, dreams of living in a world where kids can enjoy sports for the pleasure of a well-hit ball, a faster time, or a corner goal – one without helicopter parents managing their every move. As a youth sports blogger, she’s been honored to write for TeamSnap for over half a decade, and now she’s taking her wit and wisdom to the airwaves with her new podcast that tackles issues relating to youth sports.

As a Cal grad and long-time Bay Area resident, Emily Cohen knows a thing or two about sports. With two very active teenage athletes, she is well-versed in bleacher-sitting and the conduct of sports parents – the good, the bad, and the ugly. Some topics close to her heart include sideline etiquette, injury prevention, and good old-fashioned sportsmanship.

When she’s not on the tennis court, at a game, or managing her kids’ teams, she’s writing snappy marketing copy for technology companies, walking her dog, or learning to play the drums.
