Alex Lilley's insight:

Bonita Mersiades "on of Austrailias most respected sporting adminstators" thinks there should be more females involed in the world of football. Symbolic leadership is perfect for this article because she is a very well known female which inspires other females to want to listen to her and achieve the goals that she has put in place for women in the world for football.

Sarah Hulsman's curator insight, October 30, 2013 11:54 PM

Bonita Mersiades believes that it is time for more women to be granted higher positions within sport administration world in Australia. She believes that once women attain these positions then they will be able to share their experiences with other women which will then help create an equal playing field for women in sport. This article touches on topics such as the lack of fit theory, gender bias (many believe that males are more suitable for jobs in the sport industry), and diversity within the workplace. One of the main tenents of sport diplomacy is using sport to empower women in countries where women have no power at all. Although in Australia women do have power they are still striving to create equal opportunity through sport.

Leadership: On the Field and Off

Leadership: On the Field and Off | leadership | Scoop.it
The word ?leadership? is tossed around a lot in team sports, but especially so in professional football.
Alex Lilley's insight:

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.

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 4:33 PM

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.

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.

Tim Tebow shows that in sports, there’s no faking leadership (and Bruce Boudreau and Randy Edsall could take note)

Tim Tebow shows that in sports, there’s no faking leadership (and Bruce Boudreau and Randy Edsall could take note) | leadership | Scoop.it
What makes a leader? A good place to start would be to ask the followers.

Alex Lilley's insight:

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. 

Tyler Price's curator insight, October 22, 2013 7:18 PM

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.

Josh Cupp's curator insight, October 31, 2013 1:44 AM

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 insight:

UCLA's legendary baseketball coach John Wooden shares lessons on what leadership really is how he inspired others. Character was the essential quality that he stressed was the main ingredient to form leadership. John Wooden was a transformational leader. He inspired others to what to follow him so they could one day win a nation championship. 

Nicholas Wiedeman's curator insight, October 30, 2013 9:29 PM

John Wooden has always been know for his character and how he used it to motivate his players. He showed he cared for those around hm and went about things the right way. He had a strong sense of ethics and used this as a standard for his players to follow.

Too add on from my class!

Aryn Peterson's curator insight, August 11, 2014 3:09 PM

A man who was a teacher before a coach and continued with his mission to help people learn while showing them what they accomplish along the way is more important than the win/lose ratio or final grade.
