Editor Dan Spainhour On The Coaching and Leadership Journal

In 2011, my 30th year in athletics, I started The Coaching & Leadership Journal. The purpose of the Journal is to provide ideas and insights to people who are passionate about leading and to provide it in a quick and easy-to-read format. The Coaching & Leadership Journal serves coaches, athletic directors, administrators, and practitioners in education. Our journal publishes article summaries that pertain to both leadership theory and insights from athletic professionals as well as top leaders in all professions.

I believe leaders would read more if they could get exactly what they need. That’s where our Journal comes in. Each issue invokes my judgment, knowledge and experience to determine what is valuable to our readers. We scour the internet and print publications for leadership and coaching commentary and cut it down to size saving you valuable time but still giving you the information you need to stay ahead of your competition. We provide content that meets that need of athletic professionals. 

There is so much information out there and it can be so time consuming trying to find it. As athletic administrators and coaches we don’t always have time to read articles, blogs, and other material that can provide some really great information. Like a monthly debriefing, our journal allows you to get valuable information without having to waste time searching for it. You'll refer to it again and again. It is not just a journal but a valuable resource delivered to you each month.
