Through his athletic journey, Derrick incapsulated lessons and teaching that helped him into a career. Not only are his methods applicable to student athletics but to anyone going through a transition. Derrick has spoken to thousands of people from various educational and professional levels to find their individualized blueprint to success.
He has written multiple books on the matter, for instance, What's Next, Transition Playbook, 9 Habits For Highly Effective Transitioning, and others.
