Transformational Leader in Sport: The Art and Science of Coaching
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F
Highlights the expectations and ethical problems facing developmental sport programs and youth athletic coaches today. Explores the continuum of coaching from Buttermaker (Bad News Bears) to Belichick (New England Patriots). We first examine the issues of sports, physical inactivity and obesity from a physiological, psychological, social, political, and economic perspective. Next, we will focus on how transformational leadership behaviors, knowledge, and communication influence changes in intrapersonal, interpersonal, and environmental aspects. Finally, we will employ a practical, manageable method for coaches to develop their athletes and programs.
