Contemporary Leadership in Sport Organizations 2nd Edition With HKPropel Access
BookIn a quickly growing and evolving society, organizations at all levels face ongoing challenges and complexities that require specific leadership skills. Contemporary Leadership in Sport Organizations, Second Edition With HKPropel Access, brings together research on leadership—both within and outside of sport settings—to provide comprehensive knowledge of skills and practices relevant to the sport industry. With sport-specific examples, students will learn an effective approach to leadership thought, strategy, and action to apply in recreational, interscholastic, intercollegiate, and professional sport organizations as well as the rapidly growing esports industry.
Students will first learn the historical and foundational concepts of leadership, defining what effective leadership is and the primary outcomes of good leadership. Contemporary thought and leadership approaches for present-day challenges are then presented, bringing concepts to life within the unique contexts of sport organizations of all levels and types. Modern leadership concepts that are explored include emotional intelligence and its role in developing authentic leadership, data-informed decision making and problem solving, behaviors and actions that are most effective in crisis situations, and the leadership-as-practice movement.
Updates in this edition include the following:
- Expanded content on leadership for achieving diversity, equity, and inclusion in sport organizations, including new content on LGBTQ+ research in sport
- Content on global leadership in sport, including the emergence of esports and sport as a tool for social change
- Discussion of ethical decision making and the challenges and responsibilities for leaders in the development of the values and culture of an organization
