BRAVING: From the book Rising Strong by Brené Brown Copyright © 2015 in conjunction with Celia Slater, True North Sports
Our purpose is to provide professional development opportunities for coaches of all sports interested in pursuing excellence in their profession. We challenge coaches to find their True North and coach from that place. We collaborate with other like-minded organizations to find creative new ways to address other challenging social issues in collegiate athletics related to race, gender and sexuality.
Coaches Programs, Philosophy — We call it “Begin Within Coaching.”
True North Sports is dedicated to working with coaches of all sports to find their unique True North and to coach from that place inside of themselves. An aligned coach knows their purpose. They are authentic, genuine and seem fully alive with a sense of happiness about their work. They are in the “FLOW.” They are the coaches people want to work with and the coach athletes want to play for. They are dedicated to developing a keen sense of self and are disciplined at staying connected to their True North. They have a fine-tuned inner compass.
Pioneering, forward-thinking and solution-focused, Celia Slater is a nationally-recognized leader committed to providing professional development opportunities for coaches of all sports interested in pursuing both excellence in their profession and bridging the gap toward gender equality for both coaches and players.
Celia’s core beliefs rest in the power of emotional investment in reaching one’s own “true north” to achieve the height of victory as a coach, not just in accolades, but by successfully understanding one’s self, being authentic, and communicating with one’s players to have a mutually-beneficial relationship.
