Jen Welter Speaking Demo

Dr. Jen Welter is the first female to coach in the NFL, breaking into the pro ranks as a linebackers coach at training camp with the Arizona Cardinals in 2015. Welter currently serves as a defensive specialist for the newly formed Alliance of American Football (AAF).

Following her record-breaking accomplishment with the Cardinals, Welter became the head coach of the first Australian women’s national team in 2017. Widely known as a trailblazer and pioneer in professional football, Welter became the first woman to play running back in a men's professional football league with the Texas Revolution. In early 2015, Welter was hired as the first female coach in men’s professional football, helping coach the most successful Revolution season in franchise history. Prior to joining the world of men’s professional football, Welter had a highly decorated 14-year career in women’s professional football which included four World Championships, two gold medals as a member of Team USA in the 2010 and 2013 International Federation of American Football’s (IFAF) Women’s World Championship, and eight all-star selections. She was inducted into the first class of the Women’s Football Hall of Fame on November 30, 2018.

Welter is committed to increasing access and opportunities in football. To empower women through football, Welter designed her signature program, “A Day in the Life,” Camp which debuted with the Washington Redskins women's program in 2015. She continues to create a range of camps for girls and women through her GRRRidiron Flag Football Camp, along with a number of other community initiatives like her Camp on the Corner program that brings football to youth in under-served areas. She released her first publication, “Play Big: Lessons in Being Limitless from the First Woman to Coach in the NFL” in 2017.

Welter has served on the advisory board for the NFL’s Pro Football Hall of Fame Game for Life Academy since 2017. She holds a doctorate degree in Psychology, a Master’s in Sport Psychology, and a Bachelor’s degree from Boston College.

Authentic Leadership

Jen Welter changed the game when she became the first female to coach an NFL team. Not only did she successfully help lead the Arizona Cardinals to win the 2015 NFC West division title, she also earned their respect and trust by forming a strong bond and believing in them—with many of those she guided on the field years ago still calling her “coach” to this day. Illustrating the importance of devotion to one’s team and being a team player, Welter outlines for audiences how authenticity is critical to effective leadership with her on- and off-the-field strategies for anyone who wants to coach their own team to the end zone.

Drawing on her academic and professional experiences, including on the field training the Arizona Cardinals, Dr. Welter reveals her proven techniques for identifying certain mental characteristics, attitudes and behaviors to effectively train your own team to achieve success. Take away new perspective on what it really takes to effectively motivate and improve the performance of individuals and groups in the most competitive environments and applicable tactics for cultivating winning mindsets within your organization.
