Habitudes For Athletes™

Coming soon, we're introducing The Art of Navigating Transitions, the latest Habitudes for Athletes™ series. If you'd like more information about this new resource, Stay Informed Here.

Growing Leaders has developed a unique leadership training system specifically designed to prepare student athletes for excellence in both their sport and life after school. The system is based on the series of books entitled Habitudes: Images that Form Leadership Habits and Attitudes written by Dr. Tim Elmore, the President of Growing Leaders.

Habitudes for Athletes™ will help you:

  • Transform a group of individual athletes into a unified force.
  • Create teams of student-athletes who build trust with each other and
    their coaches.
  • Create language to talk about real life issues in a safe and authentic way.
  • Build teams where every athlete thinks and acts like a leader.
  • Build athletes who make wise decisions that keep them in competition and out of trouble.

This system uses powerful images from Habitudes to teach important life and leadership skills in an EIPC style (Experiential, Participatory, Image-Rich, Connected) that is engaging and memorable. As a result, student-athletes are equipped and empowered to develop healthy character-based leadership skills that will positively impact their lives both on and off the playing field.
