Do What Counts
home programs about us contact us
Student-Athletes on college campuses are in a position to affect significant positive change, both on and off campus. We train student-athletes and collegiate staff to transfer their leadership skills from the field of play to the world in which they live.

Our Focus

  • Leadership Conferences
    Through our long-term relationship with the NCAA, we have developed expertise in the design and delivery of interactive and effective leadership development programs for student-athletes and staff. We deliver programs to help student-athletes become more effective leaders on their teams, campuses and communities.

    We are fortunate to be contracted to design the content and train the facilitation teams for the NCAA Regional Leadership Conferences for Divisions I, II and III. Lynne Kaplan has played a major role in the design and implementation of the NCAA National Leadership Conference since its inception in 1997. More than 2000 students have attended the National Conference and the majority calls it a life-changing experience.

  • Campus and Conference Workshops
    We love to come to campuses and conferences to work directly with student-athletes and collegiate staff. We offer leadership and team building programs for teams, Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), athletic staff, or the entire athletic department.

    While specific topics are selected to meet client needs, our approach is always interactive, energetic, fun and effective.

Program Options

We customize our program delivery to the specific needs of your school, the athletes and the staff. We can deliver seminars ranging from one hour to multiple days. It is all about fulfilling your needs.

Who Would Benefit?

  • Any student-athlete who is interested in becoming a more effective leader
  • Faculty Athletic Representatives (FAR)
  • Athletic Department Staff
  • Senior Women Administrators (SWA)

Lynne’s work has been an integral part of the success of the NCAA Divisional Student-Athlete Regional Leadership Conferences. Not only has she done a great job of designing the content, she also excels at training the facilitators. She brings a high level of energy and creativity that inspires student-athletes, coaches, athletics administrators and staff. I really enjoy working with her and I wouldn’t want to do this without her help!
