Get to 12 Logo

After surveying hundreds of Lead ‘Em Up coaches, we found that when teams “Get to 12” sessions in a calendar year they experience a tangible transformation in their team, and their players feel it as well.

Therefore, it’s essential you lay out your plan to Get to 12 sessions (a “session” is a 30-50 minute, distraction-free, committed time, to work on your team’s leadership through the Lead ‘Em Up program)

Below you will find the resources to help you Get to 12.

Your Checklist

Use this Checklist to schedule the dates of your 12 sessions, identify the location for each session, list out the exercises you’ll be covering, and any special notes before or after the session.
