Taking Student-Athletes from Locker Room to Boardroom

According to the NCAA, student-athletes have less than a two percent chance of playing their sport professionally. For the other 98 percent, there’s Locker Room to Board Room, a professional protocol course designed specifically to help student-athletes navigate the business world after the final whistle has been blown.

Just like collegiate sports, business is a game full of intricacies. It requires practice, coaching and the ability to execute with confidence when it matters most. And whether it’s working the room during a networking event or enjoying a formal dinner with a potential boss, CLM Consulting helps student-athletes feel comfortable in any professional setting.

In addition to covering the basics — such as how to take small bites, which fork belongs to whom and why logos and sweatpants are never appropriate for a job interview — each hands-on, interactive workshop will provide the soft skills necessary to succeed in the modern workplace. This includes relevant how-tos and applicable insights on everything from introductions and handshakes to professional dress and correspondence.

At the end of the training, student-athletes leave armed with the knowledge and confidence necessary to build respectful relationships, communicate effectively and lead with confidence — on and off the playing field.
