(Ottawa, Ontario – May 15, 2019) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) and the Sport Law & Strategy Group are offering the Sport Leaders Retreat to help sport leaders from provincial/territorial, national and multi-sport organizations enhance their leadership skills. The retreat includes the Nova Profile personality assessment, two coaching conversations, and a 2.5-day retreat to run November 26-28, 2019 at the Strathmere Lodge in Ottawa, ON.

This leading edge development experience is designed for sport leaders to gain access to new ways of relating to self, others and the world around them. Leaders will:

  • Adopt strategies to communicate more effectively;
  • Increase awareness of different energy states;  
  • Experience different approaches to address difficult conversations; and
  • Participate in peer-to-peer discussions that address real life problems in a supportive learning environment.

  “I would highly recommend for anyone that is looking to expand their leadership capabilities and take it to the next level.”

  “A powerful and valuable leadership program that I would recommend.”
