Athletics present a unique opportunity to develop and practice character traits and ethical conduct, and coaches have a powerful role in shaping that ethical character development. In Leading the Right Way: Being an Ethically Centered Coach, participants will reflect on their coaching influences, and how those influences affect their own practice. They will develop a coaching touchstone and philosophy, defining how they will serve as a transformational coach. They will create practice plans that integrate character lessons into their regular coaching practice. Participants will have the opportunity to investigate ethics in sports through case studies lensed through an ethical decision model. By the end of the course, students will have a clearly defined, character-based coaching philosophy, as well as guided practice applying that philosophy to their coaching.
