Leading Teams: Tools and Techniques for Successful Team Leadership from the Sports World

Leading Teams: Tools and Techniques for Successful Team Leadership from the Sports World | Lead, Follow,Grow | Scoop.it

Sport can use some managerial know-how, and managers have a lot to learn from the world of sport. Below, Paolo Guenzi and Dino Ruta offer a scheme to link sport characteristics and business variables, discovering how team management models typically used in traditional businesses can be found in or transferred to sports teams, and vice versa.

Linus J Fernandes's insight:
"credibility is the outcome of countless actions. It is the result of the combination of what team leaders do (i.e. their behaviours) and how they do it (their attitudes); in other words, how they work and interact with several key actors, not only the team members (players and staff, in our case)."

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, October 17, 2013 6:05 AM

Fantastic scoop Roger!  I love the visual AND the material!!

 

Here is one of my favorite sections form the article:

 

“We propose an original model that places particular emphasis on the team leader’s ability to create his/her personal credibility with multiple stakeholders at different levels.”

 

Credibility for team performance


In our research, we find that this credibility derives from several attributes. Every coach has a personal notion of what it means to be credible and how to act, in concrete terms, to be seen as credible. Yet despite these subjective interpretations of the concept of credibility, certain components emerged time and time again.

 

Credibility derives from several perceptions that followers develop toward the team leader. The most frequently cited perceptions are:

 

~Technical competency, which is normally seen as essential, but not sufficient, to be considered credible;
 

~Energy, often associated with the outcome of both enthusiasm and passion;

~ Fairness, which can be seen as a combination of sincerity, spontaneity, and good ethics;


~Consistency of actions and underlying principles across time and situations.

donhornsby's curator insight, October 17, 2013 7:56 AM

(From the article): Successful leadership models in sports can be used in business contexts. The greater the similarity between the specific sports and business teams the more expedient this transposition will be. Managers should think carefully about which particular sport would best serve as their model.

Albert Einstein once insightfully wrote: “The last thing to collapse is the surface.” When I pause and reflect for a moment, I can see he’s right. The surface collapses last in our day because we’re only aware of that surface.
