Coaching Experience

The course has a significant fieldwork component as I served as a coach for other students working on the MB 107 Executive Presentation. As a Coach I had to build leadership, negotiation, conflict resolution, and team-building skills, learn the value of diversity in the workplace and how to manage through difference, and apply discipline-specific knowledge in this service learning experience.


Being an athlete has taught me a lot of important life skills, that helped me to become the leader that I want:  

  • Willingness to “go the extra mile”
  • Communication and leadership skills
  • The work ethic that can set you apart from other candidates
  • Collaboration skills in a team environment
  • Ability to manage your time – balancing practices, training, traveling, and your academic course load
  • A competitive spirit that can drive you in the workplace requires
