Both my wife and I are sports coaches and we registered for The Art of Leadership Course because we are now having to manage other coaches in our business. We thought that we would be able to just coach them when the “going got tough”. It wasn’t working, so we thought we had better get some leadership skills. Thanks PeopleSmart Academy we now feel that we have some leadership knowledge and tools, for giving us a way to manage our team more effectively.
