Leadership: Lessons from a Team Captain draws on the experience of Speaker, Marketer and Teacher, Founder, and Self-Proclaimed Pocket Cheerleader, Ciara Ungar, as an athlete and the study of today’s greatest names in sports, such as Kobe Bryant, Alex Morgan and Drew Brees, to identify characteristics and behaviors that we see in team captains in sports that are applicable to the business world. Building on a foundation of the psychology of leadership dynamics, this book explores generational gaps between traditional and new age office environments, the invisible ideal of perfection, intrinsic motivation, one-on-one relationships, trust-building and more, challenging leaders to rethink how they define a team leader and the characteristics that are inherently required.
