This course is part of the Leading People and Teams Specialization, a series of MOOCs created by Professors Scott DeRue and Maxim Sytch of the Ross School of Business that combine the excellence of U-M academics and athletics. From his decades of leadership, Coach Beilein brings a practitioner’s point of view to the Specialization through his featured lessons, demonstrating the importance of strong leadership skills, both on and off the court.

Through his interview segments, Coach Beilein discusses his approach to building and sustaining cohesive teams and developing talent while aligning individual and team goals through strong leadership. His lessons provide an engaging and practical approach to skills that can be learned and applied to a variety of contexts.

The Leading People and Teams Specialization is comprised of four courses that culminate in a capstone project and enable learners to understand and apply principles of leadership to their daily lives. The Leading Teams course, which will feature leadership insights from Coach Beilein, is now available. To learn more about the course and/or to enroll: Leading Teams course.
