Henderson to attend WBCA elite leadership-training program
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Charlotte assistant women’s basketball coach Randi Henderson has been selected among an exclusive national group to attend the upcoming Center for Coaching Excellence (CCE), a two-day elite leadership-training program, sponsored by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA). This year’s event will be held Thursday and Friday in Atlanta.

“I’m excited to have the opportunity to learn about and reflect on my own leadership style, network with coaches and administrators and learn from some great leaders and mentors in the coaching profession,” Henderson said. “I feel fortunate head coach Cara Consuegra and the Charlotte athletic department are so supportive of professional development and personal growth. I am anxious to take advantage of this great opportunity.”

Coaches attending CCE learn through collaborative and interactive learning sessions facilitated by program creators and facilitators Dr. M. Dianne Murphy and Dr. Cathie T. Siders. It combines extensive self-reflection and awareness with organized instruction from Siders, a renowned executive coach, for an unparalleled, exclusive learning experience. It also incorporates the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality inventory, which allows for individual customization of the learning experience.

Consuegra attended a similar 2013 head coaches session at Columbia University in New York.

Since the program’s inception in 2011, more than 250 coaches have attended The Center for Coaching Excellence. After the initial partnership with Columbia ended last summer, the WBCA moved the workshops to Atlanta and closer to its headquarters in Lilburn, Georgia.
