We read everything. You get what matters!

​​​​Let us be your trusted source and leadership curator every month!

In this age of millions of daily updates and billions of web pages, how do busy leaders allocate their scarce resources of time to read inspiring and educational leadership material? Our journal is a monthly source of leadership ideas and techniques compiled and written specifically for leaders.

Dan Spainhour and his team of experts dive through mountains of information and distill it down to its most relevant, essential parts. Thirty-seven years of experience allow us to bring our expertise to the subject matter. 

From Founder and Editor Dan Spainhour:
"In 2011, my 30th year in athletics, I started The Coaching & Leadership Journal. The basic premise behind my journal is that we are drowning in a never-ending stream of information, updates and it’s getting harder and harder to separate the noise from the useful information. As the quantity of information grows by the hour, leaders need means and approaches to make sense of it all. That’s where our Journal comes in. Each issue invokes my judgment, knowledge, and experience to determine what is valuable to our readers. We scour the internet and print publications for leadership and coaching commentary and cut it down to size saving you valuable time but still giving you the information you need to stay ahead of your competition."

"I am so very proud of our Journal. It is especially gratifying to watch our journal grow over the past six years. When we launched there was so much speculation that subscription-based print journals were dead. But I knew what my years of experience had taught me. Top leaders want to read, and they want to learn--they just don't have the time to waste on irrelevant information. In an era where most magazines feel very fortunate to get a renewal rate of 50 percent, our renewal rate of 80 percent shows that athletic leaders realize the value of our publication." 

​Our subscribers realize that for less than most people’s monthly cable bill they can get an entire year of essential information delivered to their door that helps make them better leaders, coaches and people. We believe it's no coincidence that our subscribers are some of the most successful people in the profession!
