Bethany Student-Athletes Attend Leadership Forum
The Leadership Forum is one of the largest non-competitive gatherings of NCAA student-athletes representing their colleges and universities. The forum was designed for student-athletes to discuss key issues collectively and provided them with an opportunity to enhance personal awareness and leadership skills needed to positively impact their development at the campus and conference levels, as well as beyond the collegiate realm.
"The NCAA Student-Athlete Leadership Forum is another type of educational setting that helps our student-athletes develop into more effective leaders and gets their thought process in motion which can help them on campus and even after they graduate," said Curtis J. Hollomon, NCAA director of leadership development.
Throughout the Leadership Forum, representatives from NCAA member schools led small group discussions about a variety of topics such as: behavioral styles, branding, social media, decision-making, emotional intelligence and values. This helps the student-athletes become more effective leaders and motivators upon returning to their campuses.
The student-athletes heard from several speakers, including Chris Herren, former NBA player and founder of Hoop Dreams with Chris Herren and The Herren Project, about decision-making. They also heard from Rayna DuBose, a former basketball student-athlete about facing adversity. Additionally, participants listened to keynote speaker Sam Davidson, president and co-founder of Cool People Care, about leadership lessons that he learned at a young age.
To gain a better understanding of the NCAA association-wide and division-specific structures and committees, participants learned from peer representatives on the NCAA National Student-Athlete Advisory Committees as well as NCAA governance staff. During these sessions, participants learned about the NCAA legislative process and discussed current hot topics. To compliment these sessions, a panel discussion will address global leadership and how student-athletes transition from a leader on campus and into the world.
