Effective leadership is essential in any sports organisation, both in the boardroom and on the training pitch.

It includes a dedicated section to underpinning core leadership theories, and employs a number of case studies throughout to show how best practice is applied in real world settings. Drawing on expertise from some of the leading academics and practitioners throughout the world, and from both disciplines, the book covers various leadership issues including:facilitative leadershipstrategic leadershipleading effective changediversity in leadershipcommunication and empathymotivation and performance. Key conceptual questions-the nature of leadership, its role in sport, styles of leadership, what constitutes ineffective leadership-and other contemporary issues are also explored to give students and practitioners the most complete and clear picture of contemporary leadership in sport.

With useful features in every chapter, such as key terms and review questions, this is an essential text for sport management or coaching degree courses.
