Everybody Needs a Coach

Emergent welcomed former SU Assistant Coach, and current University of Washington Men’s Basketball Head Coach Mike Hopkins back to Syracuse. Mike spent the evening with our LeadFORWARD program alumni, Emergent clients and guests.

The night was full of great insights into effective leadership and reflections on Mike’s time working directly with Emergent coach, Ralph Simone. Mike saw such an impact from his work with our team, that he’s brought Emergent in to create a leadership development program with the Washington Huskies players and coaching staff.
