Cultivating Creative Leadership 

**Back by popular demand! This STS session was originally presented at the 2023 4S Summit in El Paso, TX.**

In today's workplace, leadership isn't just about titles and maintaining the status quo solely because that’s the way we’ve always done it. Today’s leaders must not only work to create lasting influence and impact, but also remain agile and inspire their teams to embrace change. This session is designed to equip you with the skills and insights necessary to lead your team and foster a culture of continuous improvement and growth.

Completion of this course will earn you 4 credits towards your STS designation. 


Course led by Kyle Stark 
Game On Nation

Kyle Stark helps leaders drive great cultures - alignment, selection, development, execution - in sport, business, and military environments. 

Coach, leader, consultant.  Student and practitioner of leadership.  He has spent over 20 years coaching and leading with 15+ at the highest level of professional baseball.  Fortunate to be a part of some world class teams, he has participated in success everywhere he has been - often without maximum resources so culture had to drive it.  This includes helping the Pittsburgh Pirates turn their franchise around going from averaging 95 losses per year before his arrival to being in the top 10 in wins over the last nine years there - while having the third-lowest payroll, breaking a 20-season losing streak, earning Baseball America's Organization of the Year, and building a top-ranked development system.  

Before that, he helped Cleveland in their turn-around, resulting in being one game away from the World Series, and had previously helped St. Bonaventure University win its only conference championship in school history.  

Prior to engaging on his professional journey, he earned his MBA and JD.  More importantly, Kyle is a husband to Heather and father to Chance (23) and Cooper (16).
