Collins completes Sport Servant Leadership course
Lewis-Clark State College cross country and track coach Mike Collins recently completed a 30-hour online professional development course in Sport Servant Leadership from the Center for ETHICS* at the University of Idaho.
The Sport Servant Leadership Course was developed by the Winning with Character Foundation and the University of Idaho Center for ETHICS* to assist coaches and teams in developing a sense of unity built upon a foundation of character.
Coach Collins is in his 12th year at LCSC and in that time his teams have produced over 40 All-Americans, four Frontier Conference Runner of the Year winners, one Region I Runner of the Year and champion, and numerous all-conference and all-region selections. Collins was named the Frontier Conference Men’s and Women’s Coach of the Year in the 2007 and ’08 seasons.
Coaches certified in the Sport Servant Leadership Course learn the traits, gifts, and the mission of individuals who are servant leaders. The course creates an environment to aid the coach in their quest to become a servant leader. “A servant leader inspires others to ‘do the right’, and to lead honorable lives,” states Dr. Sharon Stoll, Director and Founder of the Center for ETHICS* at the University of Idaho. “A servant leader has a plan of action, an honorable plan of action, and that plan can be understood by others.”
