Kevin Garnett is Nets' leader of the pack | Sports Management: Ritter, Z | Scoop.it
Kevin Garnett can motivate. You learn this quickly about the 37-year-old from South Carolina, whether it’s from watching him, hearing stories from teammates, or talking with him for five minutes.
Zachary Ritter's insight:

In this article, it is mentioned how Kevin Garnett has became one of the most respected leaders in the NBA, not by just his play, but also because of his vocalness by getting people where they need to go. It also goes to talk about how past leader Deron Williams is happy that Garnett is there to take part of leadership responsibility of of himself. This relates to class in the sense that referent leadership is being shown with how he is liked by the team and accepts the leadership role even though it's his first season on the Nets.

The George Steinbrenner Leadership Model

The George Steinbrenner Leadership Model | Sports Management: Ritter, Z | Scoop.it
I have always been fascinated by George Steinbrenner, owner of the most successful franchise in baseball history. He was a man from which women (and male) leaders can learn a lot about leadership.
Zachary Ritter's insight:

In this article, there's a background on how George Steinbrenner changed the business of baseball by buying out good players and being able to keep them, followed by 5 guidleines that women leaders can learn from Steinbrenner. I feel like this is a good example of symbolic leadership. Steinbrenner was a very rich man and the Yankees are known as a winning franchise because of their money.

Krzyzewski to Receive Leadership in Coaching Award

Krzyzewski to Receive Leadership in Coaching Award | Sports Management: Ritter, Z | Scoop.it
Award Honors Nell & John Wooden Legacy
Zachary Ritter's insight:

This artilce talked about how Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski is going to receive an award in leadership for his ability to inspire and lead not only Duke to win, but Team USA basketball as well. I see Krzyzewski as a symbolic leader as well as a transformational leader that we talked about in class. Every time you see Coach Krzyzewski you think of the Duke high class they have and Team USA basketball. As a transormational leader he came in to Duke when they weren't that good, and transformed them in to one of the best team's in the nation.

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.  

Michael Loy's curator insight, October 30, 2013 12:49 PM

This article talk about how solid leadership can have a great impact on peoples performance. This really relates to what we discussed in class on coercive power which the kind of power that the coaches in the article have. This really relates to my topic on talking about the vital importance of good leadership to being succesful as a team or the individual(s) you are in charge of.

Zachary Ritter's insight:

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.

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.

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.

Zachary Ritter's insight:

This article talks about how teamwork helps female athletes become better leaders on and off the court and the impact that Title IX has on collegiate athletics. At the begining it stated that males thought females couldn't be leaders because they couldn't play football, when it doesn't matter the sport. This ties in to class with a lot of other categories rather than just leadership, including discrimination, and equity.

Zachary Ritter's insight:

I really liked this article that compared Tim Tebow's leadership when he played with the Denver Broncos compared to the University of Maryland head football coach and Washington Capitals head coach and talked about being a leader isn't through force and yelling, but rather persuading. Even though Tebow wasn't the best QB in the league, his team still followed his leadership. In class we talked about the impact leaders have on their peers, and this was a great example of a positive impact.

Leigh Fisher's curator insight, October 21, 2013 2:44 PM

I really liked this article because it shows that becoming a leader and having people respect you does not come easy. In this article they compared Tim Tebow to the University of Maryland football coach. In class we learned the different types of leaders and how to gain respect from your employees and players. Just because you are the head football coach of a team or the CEO of a company, does not mean that you are a strong leader.

Leigh Fisher's curator insight, October 23, 2013 12:05 PM

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. In class we discussed steps on how to be a leader and these steps are very similar with a little twist. 

Michael Loy's curator insight, October 30, 2013 12:40 PM

This relates to when we were talking about what makes  good leader, as well as when we talked about great examples of leaders who are or were involved in sports.
