  • You understand the importance of leadership and management to a diverse network of coaches from cycling, running and triathlon backgrounds.
  • You can efficiently block your time to stay focused on projects with tight deadlines.
  • When given a task, you find a way to get it done, whether it requires a Google search, learning a new skill or asking team members questions.
