Kelly Joey Seay's curator insight, September 14, 2014 7:42 PM

This is a major reason I feel that ethics has went down hill due to the importance of making more money. 

Richardson, A. 's curator insight, November 16, 2014 9:06 PM

Money and epic salary and endorsement deals certainly has not enhanced and increased ethics in sports.  With millions of dollars to be earned or lost due to wins, contracts and endorsement money, athletes are playing for much more than the love of the game.  In the words of Jerry Maguire, "show me the money."

Mike Falvo's curator insight, January 19, 2015 4:29 AM

I don't think it has COMPLETELY ruined ethics in sports, but it is definitely a driving force in the decisions made on and off the "field" of sport.

Brandon berger's curator insight, October 28, 2013 11:24 AM

With this podcast it covers, goal setting and overcoming weakness. Bring forth a person/ organizations strengths rather than focusing on their weaknesses. As we have recently talked about in our Sport management class the effects of focusing on ones strengths and helping them out more.

Tyler Price's curator insight, October 28, 2013 7:27 PM

Dr. Miller stresses that positive psychology can help in the workplace. A positive culture in an organization will obviously result in positive outcomes. This ties into class with creating a culture within an organization. Culture includes behavior, values and beliefs, and assumptions.
