Leadership Communication Webinar Series (3 of 3) Date: April 28, 2021

This presentation will help to educate the athletic trainer about the many facets of moving into a management or leadership position.  Most athletic training programs (undergraduate or graduate) do not address or prepare athletic trainers for promotion into management level positions or educate them with the information that is needed.  Most athletic trainers find themselves in leadership or management level positions with very little preparation for the demands of the role.  Many athletic trainers in these positions must either educate themselves or take classes once they are already in the management role. I feel it would be much better for any athletic trainers considering moving into a leadership or management position to be more knowledgeable in all of the necessary areas prior to accepting a position so they are better prepared for success.

 This On-Demand course is a Leadership Academy offering.  For more information,
