Men's Basketball Captain at San Francisco State University (Graduated)

Leaders of Evolution helped me substantially in my ability to lead effectively on and off the court. The combination of online and face-to-face topics allowed me to take my time and not rush through the course material.

Jon's background as an NCAA Student-athlete and pro also meant the information was relevant for our group of guys. I highly recommend to other programs looking to take their leadership to the next level.

Student-Athlete Engagement Coordinator at Syracuse University

We had the pleasure of having Jon meeting with our student-athletes leaders from across all varsity sports at Syracuse this past March.

Leaders of Evolution is passionate about building leaders and developing unique, customized content to deliver programming that is applicable to each individual regardless of their role on the team or point in their college career. Jon is very thorough and professional and we would love to have him back in the future.

Head Men's Basketball Coach at San Francisco State University

We have worked with Leaders of Evolution over the past four years. Most recently, Jon Shepherd delivered a tailored 2018/19 pre-season program for our NCAA Student-athletes. As a result, the team took direct responsibility and kept themselves accountable for the entire season.

Leaders of Evolution proven athlete development approach together with Jon's professionalism and ability to create strong rapport is second to none.

Associate Athletic Director at University Wisconsin-Whitewater (Former)

Damian Hecker was a wonderful guest for our Warhawk Leadership Academy. He brought excellent questions and perspective to really understand as well as expand the curriculum model.

While on campus he met with our SAAC, coaches, and faculty to share more about Leaders of Evolution and listen and learn. He is a data-driven, pragmatic leader.

How it Works

Small Line element-02
athlete management system
Blue Step-01

Consult & Collaborate

The first step to success is understanding what your Athletic Department needs, the issues you’re facing, and the goals you wish to achieve.

This session will establish the preliminary road map, which will be implemented to inspire positive change and development within your organization. We can conduct this session virtually or face-to-face.

Online-surveys, focus groups, and one-on-one interviews are important deliverables in this step.

Red Step-02

Customize & Engage

Utilizing the data generated in Step 1, we’ll collaborate with team members to develop a 3-month curriculum design project to achieve your immediate goals.

Simultaneously, our highly experienced development and IT team will build your full-customized E-learning Platform. This is typically a 4-6 week project.

Understanding branding elements, stress testing IT functionality, and seeking feedback is an important deliverable in this step.

Quality content is critical in order to engage online learners, and behind quality content sits our robust 4 C’s Leadership Framework & learning pedagogy.

Our collaborative approach will undoubtedly unleash your institution's IP using subject matter expertise to truly empower a purposeful learning journey.

Filming & audio sessions is an important deliverable in this step, inclusive of storyboards, Alumni & talent engagement.

Blue Step-04

Deliver & Educate

We typically launch your first roll-out of tailored online units 3-6 months following our first consultation (Step 1).

What People Are Saying

Student-Athlete at Syracuse University

Leaders of Evolution held a presentation at SU discussing the topics; Leadership, Self-awareness and High-Performing Teams. I have experienced numerous amount of workshops during my collegiate career regarding these topics. However, I have never experienced such a vivid and honest presentation like the one from Jon Shepherd.

Jon continues to be a tremendous mentor for me, having such a major impact helping me maximize my potential and life skills.

Associate Dean at East Carolina University Honors College

I met Jon four years ago when I co-lead a study abroad trip to Australia. Jon was an instant hit with our students due to his approachable and clear communication style, excellent presentation, and impressive professional experience.

I have been back to Australia three times and Jon remains a key part of the educational experience our students receive. Leaders of Evolution work on athlete development on a global scale comes at a critical time and his unique perspective is needed in this arena. I look forward to staying engaged with the work Jon is doing.

Men's Basketball at San Francisco State University

My time with Leaders of Evolution over the past few years has been extremely rewarding. The program is interactive and brought our team together, especially as we continued the online topics and reviewed leadership sessions with our coaches.

I definitely feel more confident and self-aware as a leader and better prepared for life and work after college sport.

Professor at East Carolina University

Jon Shepherd from Leaders of Evolution has always been an absolutely pleasure to work. His ability to engage students using technology, story-telling and collaborative questioning in line with identified learning outcomes has always been a highlight.

Students have always enjoyed Jon's company feeling at ease to learn during his sessions. I look forward to our continued relationship with Leaders of Evolution.
