Our Story


As the all-time-winningest men’s college basketball coach, Duke Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski (Coach K) has developed hundreds of college and professional players over the last four decades, resulting in five NCAA Men’s Division 1 Basketball Championships and three Olympic gold medals.

PowerForward takes Coach K’s approach and keywords for success and uses them as the foundation for an impactful leadership development program. We aim to empower emerging leaders to not only understand but also truly own and embody these themes, well beyond basketball. Through this, we are building authentic leaders decision by decision.
