The world’s leading sports teams will gather at Yankee Stadium on November 13th, when Beyond Sport United welcomes the leaders of the most popular sports on the planet amongst a powerful group of star names and influential figures who will come...
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.
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.
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.
In a real crisis, like say if an asteroid threatens to strike the planet, I want Tim Tebow as my leader. I don’t want University of Maryland football coach Randy Edsall, with his faux-militaristic...
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.
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.
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.
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.
Situational leadership training is much different than other types of training since it focuses on matching up your particular style of leadership to the types of employees and tasks you commonly face...
This article talks about how situational leadership training is very helpful for any type of business. In class we talked about training and the importance of training in the work world, however this articles focuses on training for a specific situation. Whether it is in a job or in a sport, having someone train you for a specific position is very important.
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.
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.

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.
