Kelly Poggensee-Wei's insight:

Leadership is a huge part of sports management and it is very important for future sport managers to learn how to become great leaders. New approaches to how to teach leadership and develop future generations are important and need to prepare students to 

reflect at a deeper level, to be open minded and to think critically. This ties into class because we had a discussion about whether students are being taught to be leaders in the real world and how it is being taught in school.

Kelly Poggensee-Wei's insight:

Phil Jackson was known for his championship wins but also his motivational techniques to his players. He was seen as the "calm before the storm" and had a Laissez-Faire Leadership style. He was laid back and treated his players as individuals and made everyone feel like a significant member of the team. This relates to my chosen profession which is coaching for obvious reasons and I can only dream to be the kind of coach that Jackson was because his leadership is one that I look up to.

Mark Cuban's Advice To Entrepreneurs: 'Kick Your Own Ass'

Mark Cuban's Advice To Entrepreneurs: 'Kick Your Own Ass' | Sport Management: Poggensee-Wei, K | Scoop.it
These days, nobody wants to talk to Mark Cuban about basketball, even though he’s the owner of the Dallas Mavericks. They’re too busy asking him questions about 'Shark Tank,' the ABC show in which he stars.

Via harish magan
Kelly Poggensee-Wei's insight:

Mark Cuban talks about starting up a business and how to go about it. He is the owner of the Dallas Mavericks and the spitting image of a Transactional Leader which is a type of leadership that involves exchange which is typically monetary and rewarding a job well done. I want to coach or athletic director when I'm older and this ties in to those professions because when you are in charge being a transactional leader can help clarifies everyone's roles and responsibilities and makes sure everyone gets their job done.

Rex Ryan Once Proclaimed He Would Punch Bill Belichick to Motivate His Players

Rex Ryan Once Proclaimed He Would Punch Bill Belichick to Motivate His Players | Sport Management: Poggensee-Wei, K | Scoop.it

"With the New York Jets set to battle the New England Patriots on Thursday, let's celebrate that fact by reminding you about the time Rex Ryan proclaimed he was about to punch Bill Belichick in the face. "

Kelly Poggensee-Wei's insight:

Rex Ryan was joking around and said that he was going to punch Bill Belichick in the face before the game to set a precedent for the game. While he was joking, this is a good example of Autocratic leadership style. The decision comes down to themselves and is not concerned with what others may think and being the head football coach gives them this position. I would like to become a coach some day so it is good to read articles like this and see how different coaches and managers handle having power and what they choose to do with it.

Patrick Rooney's curator insight, September 27, 2013 3:58 PM

The focus of this article was on how Rex Ryan told his players he would punch Bill Belichick in the face before the game. This was a mechanism he used to motivate his players before the start of the game, however there are other ways he could have gotten his players to feel ready for the game. This relats to class because it demonstrates an unethical approach for motivation and shows that violence should not be used as a way to amp up your players. This relates to being a sports manager because as a coach in the public eye it is important not to send the wrong message to your team and the community. If you are a successful coach or manager, you don't want others to feel as if the reason you succeed is because you use violence and threats to motivate players.

In Honor Of March Madness, Why Point Guards Exemplify Sound Leadership

In Honor Of March Madness, Why Point Guards Exemplify Sound Leadership | Sport Management: Poggensee-Wei, K | Scoop.it

There are many different styles of leadership, and it’s impossible to say one is superior to the others. When I was in the corporate world (and being, shall we say, a bit of a sports fan), I was drawn to a leadership model that was admittedly...


Via Riaz Khan, Patrick Rooney
Kelly Poggensee-Wei's insight:

Leadership is seen everywhere in the world and especially in sports. Point guards are a great metaphor for what a good leader looks like. While leadership stlyles vary among every person the 6 key points mentioned are a great outline of what skills and qualities a leader should have. Leadership ties in to almost any position at any level when it comes to sport management.

Patrick Rooney's curator insight, October 25, 2013 1:40 PM

This article disscusses  how a point guard can be compared to the CEO of a company and also how Magic Johnson was able to be a great point guard as well as CEO. Without a great CEO, the company most likely will fail. Just as in basketball, without a great point guard, the team will be less successful. Magic Johnson is an example of a man who was able to show his leadership abilities both in basketball and in the business world. This relates to class because the point guard in basketball can be related to symbolic leardership . A point guard sends a message to the team on how they should act and when. Also, the CEO is responsible for creating the structure of a company. This relates to being a sports manager because it is your responsibilty to find team members who are willing to take on the challenge of leading the team and also making sacrifices that not everyone always is eager to do. 

 

Jake Martin's curator insight, October 29, 2013 6:21 PM

I really enjoyed this article because not only is leadership very important in sports and business, but I was a point guard for our varsity team for 3 years in high school. This article hit home because alot of the points about leadership are found in a point guard and I believe part of a point guards job is to display leadership and control the team. I believe not only a basketball team needs a point guard but so do any type of business. Leadership is extremely inportant when it comes to running a business.

Our Deepest Fear...

I Love this poem...its from the movie coach carter (Timo Cruz Speach!

Via Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist
Kelly Poggensee-Wei's insight:

This is just a short clip from Coach Carter about becoming men and overcoming their fears. Carter uses Situational Leadership which is the idea that you need to understand your own behavior, the behavior of subordinates, and the situation before utilizing a particular style. In this example its inner city black kids whose likelihood of going to jail is high. Carter understands the situation he is dealing with and take the necessary steps he feels to make his coaching and leadership effective. I want to become a coach and to be a coach you have to understand every aspect of the situation and the players that you are dealing with.

Distinguishing between gamesmanship and sportsmanship...

Via Jennifer Smith
Kelly Poggensee-Wei's insight:

Ethics plays a strong role in the world of sports. Someone with a good code of ethics is fair, respectful, has integrity, and responsible. It goes along with leadership because when you are someone that is in charge and setting an example for others it's important to set a precedent for what is right from wrong. When I'm working in sports when I get out of college I want to be someone who believes in doing the right thing no matter what the situation might be.

It should be the main role. Ethics should trump winning at all costs, but we all know that is just not the way it is.

Gender bias plagues sport administration - City Press | Sport Management: Poggensee-Wei, K | Scoop.it
Nearly 20 years have passed since South Africa became a democracy, but the pace of gender transformation in the executive ranks of sports administration remains slow.
Kelly Poggensee-Wei's insight:

This article talks about the bias in sports between men and woman. It's still a huge issue with woman being able to voice their opinions as easily as men can. This relates to class because we talked about how there is bias everywhere in the sport industry whether it's hiring and looks or in the case of this article being female.

Was George Steinbrenner Good for Baseball?

George Steinbrenner was actually one of the best things that ever happened to baseball, in particular baseball players. George Steinbrenner raised the competitive bar for Major League Baseball owners and his overwhelming desire to win resulted in the salaries of players increasing in similar manner to that of European professional soccer players.


Via Ann Mcclellan
Kelly Poggensee-Wei's insight:

George Steinbrenner raised the standards for baseball and helped player salaries along the way. He is a very Symbolic Leader which is someone who maintains a strong organizational culture and sends a message to employees about how you should act. He had a strict grooming policy and believed if you work hard you will benefit. My chosen profession is coaching and this leadership style is great to understand because if you want things a certain way, you have to believe in it yourself and maintain it in order for it to be effective which is exactly what Steinbrenner did.

Leadership: On the Field and Off

Leadership: On the Field and Off | Sport Management: Poggensee-Wei, K | Scoop.it
The word ?leadership? is tossed around a lot in team sports, but especially so in professional football.

Via Riaz Khan, Patrick Rooney
Kelly Poggensee-Wei's insight:

Ray Lewis is controversial figure in sports but in this article it is clear that he is a Transformational Leader. 78% of NFL players have financial troubles within 2 years of retirement and Lewis is trying to change that. He is discontent with the status quo and knows what he wants changed. A leader in sports is not just a great leader on the field, but off the field as well and someone that learns from their mistakes. When I start working as a coach or whatever I might be, I want to be the type of leader that makes a difference when I see that things could be changed and when I make mistakes instead of dwelling on them I want to be able to learn and become an even better person and leader from those mistakes.

Patrick Rooney's curator insight, October 26, 2013 11:33 AM

This article discusses Ray Lewis and his ability to lead on and off the field. Not only did he demonstrate ways to motivate his teammates, but also tried to postively encourage the community, especially young athletes. This relates to class because Ray Lewis is a transformational leader by the way he empowers his players and builds commitment from them all. Even when he is off the field people are moved by what he has to say. This relates to being a sports manager because not only is it important for players to show leadership on the field, but it is just as important that they maintain that role off the field. 

Josh Cupp's curator insight, October 30, 2013 9:37 PM

Ray Lewis is thought of as one of most fiery football players ever, and also a great team leader. But Ray also has started to lead off the field by trying to educate fellow players about how to keep from going bankrupt shortly after their NFL careers end. His history as being a great football leader has now given him the ligetimate power that has other athletes listening to him when he trys to lead them to some sort of financial stability.

Alex Lilley's curator insight, October 30, 2013 11:42 PM

Professional football has been talked about for awhile when it comes to leadership on and off the field. There are many different leadership roles that are filled within an organization. Many see the star player, or the quarterback, or the one who calls the plays as the leader. That is why it is such a controversy when deciding who the actual leader is.  Democratic Leadership is a perfect fit for this article each position of the organization must play a role of participation in decisions making.

Leadership starts from a young age and can be learned without even realizing it. Read is a rugby player who is a true leader on the field even though he never looked at himself that way. He knows when to take control and what to do and helps his teammates out whenever he can. This article is interesting to me because it talks about how sports have shaped him as a person and I've been involved with sports my whole life and I really feel that they have shaped who I am and made me a better leader as well.

Successful people are never satisfied with the status quo and always strive for more. Not only do they want to continue to be the best they can be but they are humble along the way.

This is a brief article about the Northern Kentucky Athletic Director and how he was fired for ethical reasons. This is a form of leadership that you would not look up to. When someone of authority is in a leadership role and fails to meet their responsibilities it's a shame to the organization or company that they are a part of. This relates to my chosen profession because I want to either be a coach or athletic director and it's good to see how when you make the wrong decisions how much it can really affect you and in this case the athletic director was fired and lost his job.
