  • Sports Leader Community of Practice (CoP)

    Traditional sports leadership capacity is now a commodity in the fourth industrial revolution - directing is sports 1.0, managing is sports 2.0, and performance is sports 3.0.


    Sports 4.0 will require new leadership capacities to solve problems like, performance, diversity, change, gender, coaching, finance, systems, race, socio-cultural, strategy, corruption and sustainability.
