Dr. Voight has over 20 years of experience and we are fortunate to have had him with us for the past five seasons. His knowledge and experience is second to none. He has taught our student-athletes and coaches techniques to improve both their mental/emotional toughness and leadership during practice and competition. I have implemented his ideas in our practices and have found great success. Our student-athletes are held to the highest academic standard in the country and have the drive to be the best volleyball player they can be Dr. Voight understands and respects this balance and has implemented unique techniques for our student-athletes and coaches

I have had the privilege of knowing and working with Dr. V for over 25 years, I consider him a trusted friend and admire all his efforts to create an environment in athletics that focuses on leadership and character. Now, more than ever, we need this to be a focal point of athletic programs, for coaches as well as athletes. In
The Leadership Fix Game Plan for Sport, he lays out an easy-to-follow and highly effective way for coaches to deliver the importance of leadership on and off the playing fields. I strongly encourage athletic administrators at every level to make this book a must read for coaches in their programs.

I have watched the evolution of Michael Voight's career from a very successful college coach to a mental performance practitioner. What makes this book,
The Leadership Fix Game Plan for Sport, different is the practical application for the reader. Michael has done it and explains in an easy-to understand manner how coaches can get the most out of their team. I think highly of him as a mental skills/leadership consultant. So highly in fact, I asked him to contribute an article to the United Soccer Coaches Association's Soccer Journal in every issue, appropriately called, THE MENTAL. He offers tips to over 35,000 soccer coaches from all over the world. Enjoy!
