Coach K’s leadership ABCs | Sports management: Jenne A | Scoop.it
In the same week that saw one of college sports’ greatest legends get ousted from his job, we saw another of its icons reach a remarkable milestone.
Adam Jenne's insight:

Coach K describes that he favors strength based leadership and is also shown to be a symbolic leader now for Duke University. This article relates to class because it describes strength based leadership and symbolic leadership as well as a great coaches keys to being a good leader. This article also relates to coaching because it is the best coach in college basketball providing a framework for leadership. If a coach were to read this article I think they would be a fool not to follow it to a "t" when it is coming from such a great coach.

Jim Valvano speaking in 1987 at the annual meeting of the Million Dollar Round Table. He would go on to incorporate much of this speech into his famous speec...
Adam Jenne's insight:

This video is all about leadership straight from a coaches mouth and he is speaking to famous businessmen. Throughout the speach Valvano teaches how to lead, inspire, and become successful in your business and as well as life. This video relates to class because I think it is the ideal depiction of a leader but more specifically an inspirational and charismatic leader. This relates to coaching and leadership because in my opinion it shows a great example of charisma and how to coach and lead the right way.

It related to class in many ways: managing employees, creating organizational culture, and leadership qualities. This article also relates to coaching because it shows some key comparisons that leading organizations and leading teams are very similar and shows that leaders have similar qualities across the board

Three Keys to Mindful Leadership Coaching

Three Keys to Mindful Leadership Coaching | Sports management: Jenne A | Scoop.it
By Douglas Riddle There are countless executive coaches I would never hire for myself, no matter how wise, insightful, dynamic or experienced. Admittedly, I’m a hard guy to please, so what I require might not be a good guide for others.
Adam Jenne's insight:

This article touched a new and different way of being a coach: the term mindful. Being mindful is having an empty mind, being non-reactive, and being permissive attentive. This relates to class because a lot of the article is focused on how you communicate with people, particularly those you coach. I think that it relates to my profession because it shows several key points to coaching and to help communicating grow 10 fold with understanding of communication of the brain.

March Madness Is Over. Sports Leadership Dysfunction Goes On and On

March Madness Is Over. Sports Leadership Dysfunction Goes On and On | Sports management: Jenne A | Scoop.it

This article is by Rodger Dean Duncan, a leadership consultant and executive coach and author of Change-Friendly Leadership: How to Transform Good Intentions into Great Performance.

Adam Jenne's insight:

This article goes into detail about the failure of leadership, especially in coaching, in today's NCAA. College coaches recieving too much money and not provided with an incentive to emphasize STUDENT athlete vs ATHLETE student. We spoke in class a little about ethics and this article is all about ethics. Is it right for coaches to make more than a state governor? Is it right for coaches earn incentives for on field performance that are 11 times higher than in class incentives? It relates to my profession of coaching because coaches should focus on developing people rather than athletes.

What Makes for Good Leadership? | Sports management: Jenne A | Scoop.it
Good leaders do not need to be good at everything. They need to increase self-awareness, know their strengths, invest in them, and support others who have complimentary gifts and talents.
Adam Jenne's insight:

This article was a complete breakdown of stregth based leadership. It talked about what it actually is and why its best for leaders to use. This article relates to class because it talks about leadership, specifically strength based leadership. It also touches unintentionally on fiedlers contigency model and the emphasis of fit. This is a great article for coaching because it shows another good way to be a leader as all coaches should strive to be.

Coaching Diversity an Issue in US Sports

Coaching Diversity an Issue in US Sports | Sports management: Jenne A | Scoop.it
Diversity, or the lack thereof, within the NFL coaching ranks remains a hot topic. In 2013, not one minority coach was hired despite eight teams looking for new head coaches to lead their franchises...
Adam Jenne's insight:

This article discussed the rooney rule and if it helped and also what we could do to fix the lack of diversity. In the end the article notes that maybe the fix will be simply some time. This article relates to class because of the hiring process discussed when talking about HRM. This article relates to leadership and coaching because it deals with the hiring of coaches and how it may change in the future as well as what kind of leadership it will take to make these changes. The article also touched on skin color maybe playing too much of a factor vs how great the coach can lead.

10 Communication Secrets of Great Leaders

10 Communication Secrets of Great Leaders | Sports management: Jenne A | Scoop.it
It is simply impossible to become a great leader without being a great communicator. I hope you noticed the previous sentence didn't refer to being a great talker - big difference.
Adam Jenne's insight:

This article again focused on communication. The biggest thing that stood out to me was the key to communication that was mentioned most is being able to listen first and then create conversation rather than lecture. This relates to class in the communication aspect of leadership. The best leaders listen, communicate, and are open minded. This relates to coaching because coaches have to be good leaders and absolutely have to be able to communicate.

Adam Jenne's insight:

This article was all about leadership in todays world and creating "leadership teams". It explained why we need them and 10 steps to that will make them the most beneficial for your team. This relates to class when we talked about leadership and the different styles of leadership, particularly the Laiszez Faire leadership style. I think that this article would be great for coaches because, in my eyes, it shows you how maybe you could empower your team captains as a "leadership group" and make them a tool to you as a coach rather than just a figure head of the team.
