Leadership in Organizational Culture: Transformation in Professional Sport
WHAT IS LEADERSHIP
  • Establishing a clear vision
  • Sharing that vision with others so that they will follow willingly
  • Providing the information, knowledge and methods to realize that vision
  • Coordinating and balancing the conflicting interests of all members and stakeholders
LEADERSHIP NEEDS STRUCTURE: 5 TYPES
Which type of leader are you? - Information provided by Rose Johnson on Chron

LEADERSHIP CREATES CULTURE

Prime Example:
General manager Sean Marks (left) and coach Kenny Atkinson are trying to change the culture around the Nets.

BROADER LEADERSHIP STYLES

  • Focus is the provision of a supportive, trusting and respectful work environment
  • Not closely supervising performance
  • Actively listens and solicits opinions, recognizes feelings
  • Focus is the task, not the person performing the task
  • May ignore the feelings and feedback of others
  • Close supervision and rigid communication

A PRIME EXAMPLE OF THE STYLES

Relationship-oriented Communication (1:13-1:33)

Task-oriented Communication (1:12-1:33)

So what does all of this mean?

No matter the model or style of leadership, an organization whose leadership is ineffective and weak falls apart. Leadership is a key part of the internal structure of your organization that needs to be prioritized in order to ensure long-term success and morality.
