Tyler Price's insight:

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.

Leigh Fisher's curator insight, October 23, 2013 12:14 PM

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. 

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.

Michael Loy's curator insight, October 30, 2013 12:44 PM

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.

The leadership quandary in college sports

Who, if not university presidents, should be responsible for managing college sports?

Via Ryan Small
Tyler Price's insight:

The NCAA is corrupted when it comes to leadership structure. They have made the University Presidents in charge of every operation of athletics. The Athletic Director and department have the leadership qualities to run the athletics to the best of its abilities.

2. One interesting fact that I found was what Seth Davis said about leadership- "strong leadership requires admitting you’re in over your head." This quote made me really think of a leader because in the sport management industry, you need to know your boundaries in your concentration of sport. I believe that leadership is a key aspect of being in the sport industry.

Ordway was also a founder of the Women on Boards organisation and following her call last week for leading Cycling Australia officials to stand down, she argues that gender diversity can help sports act more responsibly.

Via DiversityLeaders
Tyler Price's insight:

This article starts off with pointing out the issue of leadership in cycling. That leaders accuse issues that goes against what they believe in. It then ends with saying that a 50/50 split in leadership roles in sport organizations when it comes to men and women. This will maximize the ability to advance for businesses.

Josh Cupp's curator insight, October 30, 2013 10:35 PM

This article gives a somewhat unique perspective as it is written by an Australian author and is mostly about a Austrailian organizations. The author is trying to point out that there is not much diversity in leadership in most sports organizations and because of this it is easier for male athletes to get away with scandles, atleast for a period of time. this opnion is fits perfectly with the idea of lack of fit because the leaders in sports keep giving higher postions to other men rather than giving it to the most qualified or deserving person.

Leadership in youth sports can vary across the board. Children could excellent leaders on a team but in the classroom lack everything leadership related. This article also explains how the different styles of leadership a coach can use for a youth team such as; autocratic or democratic.

Patrick Rooney's curator insight, October 26, 2013 12:17 PM

The main idea from this article is that more and more young athletes are taking initiavtive and becoming leaders on and off the field in many different ways. This relates to class because it discusses the different types of leaders that are relevant to the sports world.This relates to being a sport manager because it's important as a manager or coach to shape young athletes early and show them the way to become a great leader.

What makes a leader? A good place to start would be to ask the followers.

Via CharleeHanna
Tyler Price's insight:

Tim Tebow us such a great leader because he is a strength-based leader. He looks at the needs and wants of the followers to base how he wants to lead. It is a new way to lead but it is extremely effective. It is an easy way for the people you're trying to lead to get on board with you.

Matt Wiechelman's curator insight, October 23, 2013 4:58 PM

Tim Tebow may not have the physical qualities to be a legitimate quarterback in the NFL but he definately possesses the leadership required for the most important position in sports. Tebow isn't a "fake" leader like some other coaches that are forceful and loud: His success is based in the fact that he is 110% for the team, which is where his teammates buy in and follow. Tebow's leadership style can be applied to all leaders in that you must be credible and practice everything you preach.

Josh Cupp's curator insight, October 30, 2013 9:44 PM

In this article the author gives us views of three different styles of leaders. They compare Tim Tebow and the way he rallied the Denver Broncos to two coaches, one in the NHL and the other a college football coach, who have lost their teams for different reasons. The main point that the author makes is that some people have traits that make them good leaders that they seem to just be born while others don't seem to have the same traits to lead.

Alex Lilley's curator insight, October 30, 2013 11:52 PM

Tim Teebow shows his team that he has what it takes to be a leader. From reciting proverbs to his teammates, he gained there trust in him as the quaterback of the team. With that said, his team moved to a 5-1 record in the AFC western Divison. Leader member exchange theory ties in with this article because Tim Teebow has formed a unique relationship with his team by introducing them to his way of life and his beliefs and they seemed to have followed him due to the success the Broncos had.

Leadership: On the Field and Off

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

Tyler Price's insight:

Ray Lewis defines what a charismatic leader should be. His dedication on the field and off make him one of the greatest leaders in sports history. His ability to recognize mistakes and grow from them are admirable to many. His characteristics can be carried into the business world without a doubt.

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.
