Racism exists in Ireland, but sports groups – and individual players – are well placed to tackle it, writes Garrett Mullan, Coordinator of Show Racism the Red Card.
Brandon berger's insight:

It talks about how sport organizations need to be more proactive to help eliminate racism within sports. They want to have more severe penalties if the officals see, or hear this going on the field. With such actions being taught here, we want our youth to start understanding these actions are not right early. With our class this would be the managing of change within your organization.

Brandon berger's insight:

With this article it talks about the how some of the better environments that the athletes have had have been with a coach who gets everyone to buy into the team concept.

The Power of Positive Coaching

The Power of Positive Coaching | Sport Management: Berger, B | Scoop.it
A group called Positive Coaching Alliance is training thousands of coaches and parents to change to culture of youth sports for the better.

 

“But because sports is so valued, we have the opportunity to change the way people relate to their kids through it. Most research indicates that people coach the way they were coached. So you now have kids who are growing up coached with this model and soon they’ll become coaches themselves, so I think the general impact on our society could be huge.”

 

But a bigger problem is that youth sports has come to emulate the win-at-all-costs ethos of professional sports. While youth and professional sports look alike, adults often forget that they are fundamentally different enterprises. Professional sports is an entertainment business. Youth sports is supposed to be about education and human development.

 

What’s needed is a culture change. That’s the goal of the Positive Coaching Alliance, a modest-size organization that punches well above its weight. P.C.A. has trained 450,000 adults, mostly coaches and youth sports leaders, who reach about 4 million children and youths. The organization is working to spread the message that youth sports is about giving young athletes a positive, character-building experience ― not to become major league athletes, but to become “major league people.”

Brandon berger's insight:

There is a group called PCA that goes around trying to help coaches of younger athletes try and create a more positive enviroment for them. For what we have talked about in our class this seems to have a good portions of the professonial way to go about coaching for individuals.

We all need ethic re-enforcement training at some point in time.  Even or coaches.

Stephanie Howard's curator insight, May 16, 2015 10:54 PM

I think positive coaching is extremely important, especially for our young athletes. Coaches need to be reminded of the impact they have on their athletes.

Brandon berger's insight:

Within this article it talks about the stages of trying to help develop positive outcomes for your athletes at each level and what the coaches at each level should be focusing more on. Along with this article to me, if these methods were practiced more frequently there would be a more enjoyable enviroment for the not only the athletes but also the spectators. This goes along with our coaching section of the class for sports management.

Brandon berger's insight:

With the research done by the University of Michigan, it talks about how the administrations powers of a School if they want to help with a few of the problems within, try and drive students to out for sports to help lower a statistical chance of them getting into trouble. This kind of goes in hand with the employee involvement but instead of them being your co workers they are the students you look over.

With this article it is more or less stating the process of properly educating your athletes within the realm of sports, not just your sport.

Build a Positive and High-performing Sports Team Culture

A healthy culture will help a team get along and achieve its competitive goals.
Brandon berger's insight:

It talks about team and non team sports. With these athletes that are in non team sports still have influence on the attitude that the team has in general. This has an effect on the atmosphere that teams have, as the article states, whether it is more relaxed or strict. To me they have to look at the process of the players a team puts together.

Josh Cupp's curator insight, October 30, 2013 10:16 PM

This article is an overview of a book that the authors wrote. It goes over the basic ideas that managing a sports team and a work team are very similar and that ways to lead as a sports manager can be transfered to the business world too. This article reminded me of a few leadership points but the biggest was the fielders contingency because the authors made multiple points that things that work in sports to lead can be taken into certain situations in business and used the same way to lead there also.

Banning footballers from Twitter would be a mistake, according to a director of Fast Track - one of the fastest growing international sports marketing agencies.
Brandon berger's insight:

With this article we talk about how social media brings the fans closer to the sports. We get to see the true reactions sometimes from the people righting for a certain company. This makes it harder sometimes for management because they need to have public relations filters these comments. This one is just another way to help stay closer to your supporting fan base which each organization needs to do more of today.

Dr. Miller stresses that positive psychology can help in the workplace. A positive culture in an organization will obviously result in positive outcomes. This ties into class with creating a culture within an organization. Culture includes behavior, values and beliefs, and assumptions.
