Pat Summitt halftime vs. North Carolina

Pat Summitt's halftime speech from the 2007 Final Four against North Carolina. The Lady Vols went on to win the game 56-50.
Michael Tyler Renfro's insight:

This video shows Pat Summitt doing what she does best and getting her team fired up and creating a game plan for the second half.  Pat Summitt shows great Democratic leadership in this video by asking for feedback from both the coaches and players on how to improve in the second half.  This shows me not to only rely on myself but if you train your staff well enough they can be vital in the leadership process along with you.

Leading Blog: A Leadership Blog: Phil Jackson's 11 Principle's of Mindful Leadership | Sports Management Renfro.  M | Scoop.it
Michael Tyler Renfro's insight:

This article shows how Phil Jackson's Laissez-faire leadership tactics led to his many years of success.  By relying on not just himself for leadership but also out of his players and management Phil Jackson mastered the art of the laissez-faire leadership technique.  This shows me that not being the only one in charge, and letting others take the reign, with my final approval, can also lead to success.

Mark Cuban is a Highly Effective Owner of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks

After taking over the failing Mavericks in early 2000, Mark Cuban completely overhauled the team, turning it into a successful franchise through the help of the community and any others involved with the team.
Michael Tyler Renfro's insight:

This article shows how Mark Cubans transformational leadership style has propelled the Maverick’s from a nobody to a championship contender.  As an owner Mark Cuban goes against every status quo and stereotypical aspect of a professional sports owner, which makes him a transformational leader.  Mark Cuban shows me that by bringing something fresh and new to the table you can put life back into a dying company or, in this case a team.

BAD COACH vs. GOOD COACH

Part of a project I did for my Sports Psychology class about youth sports.
Michael Tyler Renfro's insight:

This video shows the different types of coaching and how they can affect their players in a humorous way.  The video portrays how strict coaching or a dictatorial way of coaching is not necessarily the best way to go and by being a symbolic/charismatic leader you can get the same if not better results out of your followers.  This shows you don’t need to have a hard head and be a forceful leader you can get the job done without it.

In just two games, Beason has emerged as a vocal leader on a defense that already includes loud-mouthed Antrel Rolle and venerable Justin Tuck.
Michael Tyler Renfro's insight:

This article shows how a new style of leadership can completely revamp a dying team.  The relevance in this to class is how a change in leadership style can completely turn around a company or in this case a team.  This shows how situational leadership can turn around a hopeless team, and can totally change the culture just by fresh new leadership qualities.

Sports Leaders UK Case Study

Michael Tyler Renfro's insight:

The video really shows how by bringing sports in to young troubled kids lives you can make a difference.  This shows that there is no prototypical leader out there, and even kids who volunteer there time can become great leaders and mentors to other troubled youth.  This relates because it shows that anyone can become a leader and there is no one specific right way to be a leader, everyone can become a leader in their own unique way.

Via Terry Hill
Michael Tyler Renfro's insight:

This article has a very interesting way of looking at leadership, you learn more by looking at what the followers are looking for in a leader.  In the article it gives examples of more dictatorial leaders like Randy Edsall, and Bruce Boudreau, and then also shows an example of more of a charismatic, and symbolic leader in Tim Tebow.  This article compares different types of leadership, and shows how the LMX theory is a good theory to use.
