He has coached a team to a National Championship, he helped Canada's men's basketball team to their first ever world championship and most recently lead the transformation of the Ryerson Athletic Department to a winning organizational culture in capturing their first ever national Championship banner.

Focus. Goals are a part of focus, yet we get caught up in the distractions. Learning to maintain focus in the face of distractions leads to higher performance.
Cohesion. Leadership and teamwork is all about relationships. High performing teams are more cohesive and value relationships. Dr. Ivan Joseph will share examples of how to build community, the importance of touch, and exercises he uses.
Talent for the Task. Great leaders must be adept at identifying and putting the right person with the needed skill-set in the right role. And, the role must be enticing for the person.
