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.

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.

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. 

Tyler Price's curator insight, October 28, 2013 9:56 AM

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.
