Leigh Fisher's insight:

In 2012, there was a meeting with all the highly respected sport leaders from every city. They brought all different leaders together to see if they could get ideas off of each other to help with problems in there own city. This articles shows that being a leader in one certain part of life can transfer to being a leader in something bigger. In class we talked about the different types of leaders and I think having this meeting can bring different types of leaders together to learn from each other and learn how to become a better leader in their area.

The leaders in sport are the one of the top leaders in the world because of the impact sport has had in this world. They have united to try and improve the communities in which they reside in. This type of leadership they are displaying can go down the lines of corporate social responsibility.

Zachary Ritter's curator insight, October 29, 2013 8:54 PM

The main goal of this article was to have sports teams be looked as the central part of their representing cities as influencers of community efforts. I see the revelance towards class in this article in that a lot of people see sports teams as organizations that just make money, where in the article the sports teams giving back to the community. This relates to my profession in the sense that as a manager giving back to the community is vital in my opinion.

This article talks about how sport can have a big impact on dealing with social issues in a city. For example detroit is a very poor city and has alot of struggles but they rally around their sports teams and they give them hope. This relates to what we talked about in class about how leadership can help make changes, like a transformational leader.

2 Kinds of Leadership: Are You a Steve Jobs or a Jack Welch?

2 Kinds of Leadership: Are You a Steve Jobs or a Jack Welch? | Sport Management: Fisher, L | Scoop.it

Great leaders are hard to come by, and they often seem to have more differences than similarities. Some are smooth; some are gruff. Some are aggressive; some excel at politicking.

 

That said, there are really just two basic types of leaders. There are incremental leaders, who maintain the stability of an organization and allow things to develop and grow over time. Then there are disruptive leaders, leaders who work to break down the fundamental structure of things in order to create major, noticeable change.


Both types of leadership can lead to success. Don’t stress yourself out comparing them; it’s beside the point. What is the point, then? Figuring out what type of leader you are will help inform both how you run your company, and ultimately, how your company will impact the world.

Leigh Fisher's insight:

In this article, they discuss the difference between Steve Jobs and Jack Welch. They talk about how Jack Welch is a type of leader that continues and maintains the stability of the organization while people like Steve Jobs break down the structure and add a major change. In class we discussed different types of leaders and talked about Steve Jobs being a transformational leader, which is very similar to a disruptive leader.

Leigh Fisher's insight:

I really liked this article because it shows that becoming a leader and having people respect you does not come easy. In this article they compared Tim Tebow to the University of Maryland football coach. In class we learned the different types of leaders and how to gain respect from your employees and players. Just because you are the head football coach of a team or the CEO of a company, does not mean that you are a strong leader.

Zachary Ritter's curator insight, October 30, 2013 9:07 AM

I really liked this article that compared Tim Tebow's leadership when he played with the Denver Broncos compared to the University of Maryland head football coach and Washington Capitals head coach and talked about being a leader isn't through force and yelling, but rather persuading. Even though Tebow wasn't the best QB in the league, his team still followed his leadership. In class we talked about the impact leaders have on their peers, and this was a great example of a positive impact.

Veterans instill the message from Day One: It's team first, not 'me first.' And the rookies respond.

Via Mark Taylor
Leigh Fisher's insight:

In this video and article, St. Louis Cardinals are looked at as a strong organization and championship team. I think this organization really represents a symbolic leadership in the way that whoever comes in to this organization knows exactly what is expected of them from the history of the team. They talk about how it does not matter if you are a rookie or veteran of the team; everyone understands what is expected of them to make them the organization that they strive to be.

Successful Leadership Behavior in Sport | The Sport Digest

Leigh Fisher's insight:

In class we talked about the different types of leaders and how they deal with their players. In this article they talk about situational leaders that change how they lead depending on the type of players they are coaching. There is a chart that has a description of training and instruction behavior, democratic behavior, autocratic behavior, social support behavior and positive feedback. All these topics were discussed in class and depend on the situation the leader is in.

Zachary Ritter's curator insight, October 29, 2013 9:51 PM

This article focused more on the situational leadership portion that we covered in class. It talked about how situations can affect coache's and player's leadership capabilities. It mentions a Leadership Scale for Sports that talks about Autocratic and Democratic leadership like what we talked about in class.

Michael Loy's curator insight, October 30, 2013 12:49 PM

This article talk about how solid leadership can have a great impact on peoples performance. This really relates to what we discussed in class on coercive power which the kind of power that the coaches in the article have. This really relates to my topic on talking about the vital importance of good leadership to being succesful as a team or the individual(s) you are in charge of.

Corporates all over the world, are big on teaching "leadership skills". The "motivational speaker" is a favored technique. But how relevant is it?

Via Lothar Bielke
Leigh Fisher's insight:

At the beginning of this article, they compare leadership in the workforce and sports to leadership in the military. Even though these situations are very different, in order to be a leader you need to follow similar steps. This article shows eight steps on how to be a leader and how to treat everyone on your team as equals. In class we discussed steps on how to be a leader and these steps are very similar with a little twist.

This article talks about the author's 8 rules/guidelines to becoming a good leader on a sports team. The relevence to class for this article is how we talked about leader's being the person on a sports team that people can depend apon and value everyone's insight. This relates to my profession in throughout events the leader of a team will try and stand out from others not in just a performance/physical aspect, but in commanding thier troops.

Michael Loy's curator insight, October 30, 2013 12:40 PM

This article talks about how introverts are successful leaders. In class we talked about introverts and extroverts and how they differ in the work force. Extroverts are people that are more outgoing and may seem more successful. This article shows how extroverts and introverts can both be successful as leaders in different ways.

Joe Paterno’s Lying in Jerry Sandusky Abuse Case Further Taints His Legacy

Joe Paterno’s Lying in Jerry Sandusky Abuse Case Further Taints His Legacy | Sport Management: Fisher, L | Scoop.it
Emails from the Penn State probe show JoePa helped decide not to report Jerry Sandusky to authorities—and why ‘liar’ should be added to his legacy, says Buzz Bissinger.
Leigh Fisher's insight:

This article is about the Penn State trial and how Joe Paterno dealt with the entire situation. I think this article shows an example of how some leaders are not exactly whom we all think they are. Paterno was an amazing leader for Penn State and could be considered a transformational leader. This article shows how he came across a conflict and did not deal with the situation in a way that a leader of a university should.

5 Keys of Dealing with Workplace Conflict

5 Keys of Dealing with Workplace Conflict | Sport Management: Fisher, L | Scoop.it
image credit: DN Nation Here’s the thing - leadership and conflict go hand-in-hand. Leadership is a full-contact sport, and if you cannot or will not address conflict in a healthy, productive fashion, you should not be in a leadership role.

Via John Michel
Leigh Fisher's insight:

In this article, they talk about the five ways to deal with conflict in a workplace. The five ways to deal with conflict were to define acceptable behavior, hit the conflict head-on, understand the What’s In It For Me factor, the importance factor and view conflict as opportunity.  In class we learned about how to deal with conflict and even though the examples we learned in class were not exactly like these, both had similar views on how to be a leader and deal with conflict in your area of work.

John Michel's curator insight, July 16, 2013 1:40 PM

How many times over the years have you witnessed otherwise savvy professionals self-destruct because they wouldn’t engage out of a fear of conflict? Putting one’s head in the sand and hoping that conflict will pass you by is not the most effective methodology for problem solving. Conflict rarely resolves itself – in fact, conflict normally escalates if not dealt with proactively and properly. It is not at all uncommon to see what might have been a non-event manifest itself into a monumental problem if not resolved early on.
