The Early Benefits of Resilient Health in Sports and School

At Leaders of Evolution, we recognize the importance of resilient health and training when it comes to the success of student-athletes. Student-athletes can train to become physically stronger and more skilled in their sport, but with Leaders of Evolution’s resilience health workshops, they can also boost productivity and reduce stress through resilience training. While many characteristics and skills make up leaders in sport, Leaders of Evolution recognizes the importance of resilient health. Let’s discuss the importance and significance of training resilience and how Leaders of Evolution can help build the leaders of tomorrow, today.

Early Benefits of Resilient Health Workshops 

Leaders of Evolution’s online e-learning hub saves teachers time while providing efficient lessons to build the necessary skills within young student-athletes. Why is resilience one of the traits we emphasize throughout lessons? In a study funded in 2017 by the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s (NCAA) Innovations in Research and Practice Grant Program, the concept of resilience was slightly shifted.

Resilience is known as the ability to persist through challenges and recover from adversity. In this study, however, resilience was no longer thought as a character trait you are born with, but instead “a practised interaction between person and environment.” This showcases the ability to practice resilience the same way you would a special skill in your designated sport. Training to build adversity can have positive impacts not just on the field, but throughout young student-athletes’ lives. 

According to SportPsych, resilience in athletes “can lead to more positive sport experiences, better goal-oriented outcomes and enhanced performances.” Additionally, resilience can be developed by parents, coaches, psychology professionals and through resilience books and resilience health workshops. There are a number of research studies done on resilient health and its effects on student-athletes, the different factors that contribute to this resilience and how those effects can impact the psyche of student-athletes. But while the concept of resilient health has been known and studied for a longer period of time, the exploration of resilience in sport context is much more recent according to Galli and Gonzales (2015). 

Leaders of Evolution has recognized the need for proper research and understanding of resilience and how our resilience books and online e-learning programs can benefit educators, athletic programs and students themselves. We have a simple goal of reaching over 100,000 or more Student Leaders by 2025 and we have deeply recognized the relationship between the mind and the body, physical and emotional health. Let’s dive deeper into Leaders of Evolution and our Year 5 and Year 6 courses, and how these can build the right skills and characteristics for student-athletes to become the impactful and positive leaders of tomorrow. Specifically, we’ll explain the Emerging Leaders in Sport resilience book and some of the worksheets provided by the Leaders of Evolution free toolkit

Young Leaders in Schools Course

The Young Leaders in Schools course has been designed to help educators and coaches understand the approach and framework Leaders of Evolution has when it comes to e-learning courses. Although Year 5 and year 6 may seem early for students to be preparing for their academic and professional careers, we believe at Leaders of Evolution that building leadership skills can create positive habits and create healthy intrapersonal relationships for students at a young age. By the end of the free taster course provided for the Young Leaders in Schools lesson, educators will have a better understanding of the student experience with Leaders of Evolution. 

Breakdown of Young Leaders in Schools Course

All of our lessons, whether discussing resilient health or emerging skills for the future workforce, utilize the 4 C’s of Effective Leadership as their framework. The 4 C’s are Competence, Confidence, Character and Connectedness and have been developed through research done at Leaders of Evolution. The 4 C’s will enhance students’ learning experience as they understand which C is being discussed in each lesson, why it matters and how what this means when creating purposeful goals. 

Competence: Effective student leaders will demonstrate the skills and behaviours which allow them to perform their role successfully and influence positive change within and outside their school community. They will do this by:

  • Influencing change within the school community both as an individual and as a member of a team
  • Demonstrating an awareness of self, recognising strengths and areas to review and setting challenging goals
  • Recognising what effective leadership is and demonstrating the capacity to be an effective leader
  • Effectively communicating with various stakeholders
  • Contributing to the development of a safe environment
  • Demonstrating the capacity to self-reflect and learn from experience
  • Planning, delivering and reviewing school community projects

Confidence: Effective student leaders will display confidence in their own knowledge and abilities and be able to instil confidence in others to meet their potential. They will demonstrate this by:

  • Actively contributing ideas in small and large groups
  • Developing their public speaking skills
  • Recognising the importance of making good decisions and demonstrating an ability to do this
  • Thinking creatively and recognising the importance of vision in leadership 
  • Developing techniques to effectively negotiate and resolve conflict
  • Motivating themselves and their peers

Character: Effective student leaders will have a deep understanding of themselves, be intrinsically motivated by the desire to help others and always show integrity in their leadership role. They will demonstrate this by:

  •  Holding themselves and their teammates accountable for their decisions and demonstrating a sound work ethic
  • Recognising personal values and leadership purpose and behaving in line with these
  • Demonstrating resilience and perseverance in times of challenge
  • Recognising their role as a role model and behaving in a positive manner
  • Demonstrating respect for themselves, their peers, their teachers and stakeholders within the wider school community
  • Recognising the role emotion plays in their own and others’ behaviour 
  • Recognising the role self-reflection plays in developing self-awareness

Connectedness: Effective student leaders will create positive working relationships with people by demonstrating an awareness of individual, school and wider community values and inspiring others to achieve positive outcomes. They will do this by:

  • Recognising what connection means within their school community and the importance of connection and relationships in being an effective student leader
  • Identifying the various stakeholders they must engage with as a student leader and demonstrating the skills required to successfully collaborate with them
  • Identifying the traits of high performing teams and demonstrating the capacity to work successfully in teams
  • Recognising the role mentorship plays in their personal development, and getting the best out of others by playing a mentoring role
  • Identifying elements of own and others behaviour which contributes to developing successful relationships, including situational awareness

Successful Leadership Characteristics

In our lessons at Leaders of Evolution, we ask our coaches what leadership traits are used in successful leaders through what they’ve witnessed and their own experience. A trait can be explained as a distinguishing quality or characteristic. When we talk about leadership, their qualities and traits build up their leadership style and how they distinguish themselves as impactful and positive leaders. Engaging videos throughout our lessons give students the opportunity to hear from coaches and professionals on what leadership styles and traits have had success in their eyes. 

Goal Setting

Goal setting is another important topic focused on throughout our lessons. At Leaders of Evolution, we work with educators to go over student-athlete progress and see if the purposeful goals are being reached. As young leaders, they need to practice making their own goals with themselves, even at a young age. This is good practice to start finding the meaning behind work and becoming proud of any success made through practice at Leaders of Evolution. Be sure to check out our various videos and free taster courses to learn more about the Emerging Leaders in Sport course. 


Resilience is fundamental for student-athlete success. Success can be measured in many ways, and one of those we believe at Leaders of Evolution is the emotional and mental health of students.
