Stop Competing & Start Winning: The Business of Coaching
Beth Launiere, University of Utah, Volleyball Head Coach
with Leo Hopf, Author of Rethink, Reinvent, Reposition: 12 Strategies to Renew Your Business and Boost Your Bottom Line
In simpler times, coaches did it all. But now the time demands, size and complexity of programs have increased exponentially, and the stresses to win have intensified. Success today requires head coaches to be intentional about creating and maintaining a capable staff, maximizing their staff’s talents, and being an effective delegator.
Coaches will learn strategies for how to hire the right candidate, mentor younger staff members, and recognize when it is time to make a staff change. Coaches will have an opportunity to evaluate their program and prioritize tasks that should be handled by the head coach and tasks that can be delegated. Coaches will leave this session with best practices in staff management drawn from the worlds of athletics and business to make your staff more productive and give your program a better chance for success.
Beth Launiere recently finished her 30th season at the helm of the Utah volleyball program and has accumulated a total of 588 career victories. The 2019 season included 24 wins for the program that finished third in the PAC-12 and reached the NCAA Sweet 16 for the fourth time in school history. This season, Launiere was named the PAC-12 Coach of the Year and the AVCA Region Coach of the Year for a fourth time. The Utes have made the NCAA tournament 16 times and have won 6 Conference Championships under Launiere.
Leo Hopf is the author of “Rethink, Reinvent, Reposition: 12 Strategies to Renew Your Business and Boost Your Bottom Line” which was named the book of the month by the Institute for Management Studies. His expertise spans strategy, decision making, and business renewal.
He has led hundreds of strategy sessions with CEOs, leadership teams, and boards of directors. He designed the decision making and strategic planning processes for five of the Fortune 100 largest companies.
