Cam Farnham's curator insight, September 28, 2014 10:41 PM

1. Social Media in sports can be a good thing, or can result in a bad thing. What i learned is that before the social media days with Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, people would never be up to sync with there favorite teams and players. The article states that "You used to have to wait a month before colour photo spreads would be published in magazines or if you were lucky you’d get to see one great shot in a newspaper the day after a big game occurred". I never realized how much of a deal social media is to the fans of sport. Looking at who i follow on my Instagram, i realized how many athletes i really do follow.

 

2. The interesting thing about social media in sports is how many fans it affects. Cristiano Ronaldo has the most followers on Twitter and posts pictures and videos of his everyday life. If you go on to Twitter, you will see how many people life his posts. There are fans for every player in every country of the world. Another thing i found interesting is how much social media is growing everyday. After a big game by an athlete, there followers go up dramatically. It is crazy how many people are bandwagon fans, meaning they only like them when they are doing well.

 

3. I selected to explore Social Media in Sports because i knew it was a huge thing. Not only do professional athletes have there own channels, but so do college athletes. I remember when Johnny Manziel was in college and i loved the way he played. I followed him on Instagram when he had about 500 followers. Before you knew it he was "Johnny Football" and now has hundreds of thousands of followers. Social Media in sports is something i find so intriguing because it really can make or break an athlete. Some people like Russell Wilson use social media to promote their charities. Others, Like Richard Sherman, use it to attack others and make him fell like he is in control. Social media makes the sport what it is today.

 

4. This information about Social Media will help me in the Sport Management Industry because if I'm someone who is affiliated with a team or athlete i know what it can to do an athlete. Image is something that is so big in sports that one single post on Social Media can ruin ones reputation. One thing I've always wanted to be is a sport agent. If I'm an agent for a pro athlete, I'm going to realize what is good to post and what is not good to post.

How to Build Leadership Trust

How to Build Leadership Trust | Sports Ethics: Sorensen, Z | Scoop.it

What do employees really want from company leaders? The answer may surprise you — and, more important, may prompt you to change some of your practices.


“I don’t think the people who work for you want you to be an optimist anymore,” says GE CEO Jeff Immelt. “They want you to be realistic. They don’t want hollow promises, they want action: What’s your plan, and how are you going to solve problems?”


The hallmarks of what Immelt calls “positive leadership” are authenticity, transparent communication, a focus on the future, and the ability to solve problems and take action.

Great leadership is built around trust. How truthful CEO communication can build better team alignment and productivity at your company.

John Michel's curator insight, June 16, 2013 9:30 PM

Recent management studies support the idea that workers respond best not to cheerleading or a continuous stream of happy talk, but to evidence of a strong connection between words and deeds. Employees are much more likely to trust their immediate supervisors than top corporate executives, according to global consulting firm Blessing White. Why? Because employees can match what managers say with what they do. That’s more difficult to do given the layers of management that may separate them from top leaders, which makes it imperative that top leaders spell out specific actions the company will take, explain why, and offer proof that such actions have been taken.
