In addition, management hard skills (scholastic management), management soft skills (behavioral, financial, and personnel), and leadership hard skills (competencies), leadership soft skills (qualities, values, and orientation), and management hard skills (scholastic management), are essential ingredients to become an efficient and effective Athletic Directors turn to shape-up one's philosophy. An athletic directorship theory was developed as a result of the investigation, based on the growing philosophies of the informants.
