Captain`s Council Systemby J.P. Nerbun
The Captain's Council
Implementing and effectively running the Captain’s Council within your team is a powerful way to not only develop leaders, but to increase the chances everyone in your program feels seen, known, and cared for.
The 5 Functions of a Captain’s Council
1. Develop Leadership Skills
2. Decentralize Command
3. Create Connections and Cohesion
4. Support and Accountability
5. Become a Player-Led Team
The training will help you to with the following process:
Create/ Review Job Description
Voting & Selection
3 Servant Leader Commitments
Selection of Units
Weekly Meeting with Captain’s Council
The current model for leadership development in sports and business is failing miserably. All the research out there points to most traditional models being a complete waste of resources. Instead of delivering leadership lessons in a classroom or a weekend retreat, we need to focus on fo ur key things if we are to be successful:
1. Experiential Learning
2. Personal Development
3. Leadership System
4. Leader Mentorship
The Captain’s Council System provides a structure so your program will continually focus on those four key areas. While leading research has been foundational to its development, it has also relied on modeling some of sports greatest teams, such as the New Zealand All Blacks Rugby Team.
I help coaches build a culture of high standards and strong relationships.
Since 2017, I have been supporting coaches, from High School to the NCAA Division 1 Level, through my consulting services and mentorship program.
Over the last 5 years I developed the Competitive Cauldron Spreadsheet for my own teams and helped over 50 coaches in basketball, football, soccer, volleyball, and hockey implement it within their program. The results have been nothing short of remarkable!
Before starting Thrive On Challenge, I spent over a decade coaching in Ireland, Lithuania, and America at the high school, college, and professional levels. And before I started coaching, I played basketball at the University of South Carolina.
