    Ep. #62-Dr. Matthew Raidbard-Talks leadership styles and how to tap into yours with Sivonnia DeBarros, Protector of Athletes

    Dr. Matthew Raidbard

    On this episode, Dr. Matthew Raidbard discusses all things leadership, how to tap into yours and his new book with Sivonnia DeBarros, the protector of athletes.

    After obtaining his Bachelor’s degree in history and classical studies from Indiana University, Dr. Raidbard decided to pursue his dream of being a college basketball coach. His first college basketball coaching job was at Western New Mexico University, where in addition to coaching he completed his Master’s degree in Educational Leadership.

    After leaving Western New Mexico he served as a men’s basketball coach at Dartmouth College, Florida Gulf Coast University, and Chicago State University. While working at Chicago State he completed his Doctorate in Educational Leadership, with his dissertation focusing on determining the best leadership style and behaviors for athletic coaches to practice. From his dissertation research, he realized that coaches at all levels of sports were being asked to take on increased leadership responsibilities for their athletes and team without sufficient opportunities to receive leadership education and training.

    This finding was the inspiration for his new book, “Lead Like A Pro,” where he helps inform coaches about leadership practice, and teaches them how to be more intentional and effective leaders. During his last two years at Chicago State he transitioned into athletics administration, and since that time has worked at the University of Northern Colorado, before moving into his current role as the Executive Senior Associate Athletic Director for Administration, Compliance, and Student-Athlete Success at the University of Hartford.
