Diversity and Inclusion in Sport Organizations provides readers with a comprehensive understanding of the ways in which people differ--including race, sex, age, mental and physical ability, appearance, religion, sexual orientation, and social class--and how these differences can influence sport organizations. It offers specific strategies for managing diversity in work and sport environments, provides an overview of diversity training that can be implemented in the workplace, and discusses the legal issues related to the various diversity dimensions. Grounded in research and theory, this user-friendly book emphasizes the practical applications of research findings and provides relevant sport-related examples. Its clear discussions and logical connections among ideas helps readers understand the managerial implications of fostering and sustaining a diverse workforce. The third edition has a new title, which reflects an expansion of the book's content and focus to cover inclusion in addition to diversity and diversity management. It also includes a new chapter on using sport to promote inclusion and social change as well as discussions of legal aspects of diversity and inclusion in relevant chapters.
Despite the mythology of sport bringing people together and encouraging everyone to work collectively to success, modern sport remains a site of exclusionary practices that operate on a number of levels. Although sports participation is, in some cases at least, becoming more open and meritocratic, at the management level it remains very homogenous; dominated by western, white, middle-aged, able-bodied men. This has implications both for how sport develops and how it is experienced by different participant groups, across all levels. Critical studies of sport have revealed that, rather than being a passive mechanism and merely reflecting inequality, sport, via social agents’ interactions with sporting spaces, is actively involved in producing, reproducing, sustaining and indeed, resisting, various manifestations of inequality. The experiences of marginalised groups can act as a resource for explaining contemporary political struggles over what sport means, how it should be played (and by whom), and its place within wider society. Central to this collection is the argument that the dynamics of cultural identities are contextually contingent; influenced heavily by time and place and the extent to which they are embedded in the culture of their geographic location. They also come to function differently within certain sites and institutions; be it in one’s everyday routine or leisure pursuits, such as sport. Among the themes and issues explored by the contributors to this volume are: social inclusion and exclusion in relation to class, ‘race’ and ethnicity, gender and sexuality; social identities and authenticity; social policy, deviance and fandom. This book was published as a special issue of Sport in Society.
Contemporary Leadership in Sport Organizations blends research on leadership with practical application of the skills and knowledge that students will need on the job. This text provides sport management students with a comprehensive understanding of the complex topic of leadership in sport through a presentation of foundational and contemporary research, numerous practical examples and analytical exercises, and thought-provoking self-assessments and quotes. More than leadership tips from a sport personality, Contemporary Leadership in Sport Organizations translates classic and contemporary research in leadership into leadership skills and behaviors that are useful in present-day sport settings. Synopses of research findings are presented in table format for an accessible approach to understanding the three Rs of leadership: relationships, results, and responsibility. In addition, a variety of learning features reinforce content: • Practical examples provide opportunities to critically consider the concepts under discussion. • Chapter-opening objectives, as well as pre- and postchapter self-assessments, help students measure their understanding of chapter content. • Specific examples and case studies applicable to a broad range of sport leadership roles put research into practice. • On the Sidelines stories, Your Thoughts boxes, and questions at the end of chapters are incorporated throughout the book to provide examples and stimulate discussions applicable to a broad range of sport leadership roles across youth, amateur, intercollegiate, professional, and commercial sport organizations. Part I of the text offers a leadership primer, introducing the elements of business and educational environments in which sport organizations operate. Students will learn how leaders in sport organizations typically assume both managerial and leadership roles and how these roles integrate and diverge, and they will review the historical foundation and evolution of leadership theories from the academic literature. Part II covers applied leadership thought and action and how leaders can become more effective in addressing critical challenges of the present and future. Key topics such as decision making, organizational change, emotional intelligence, vision, strategic planning, and crisis management are discussed. Professional growth and development are the focus of part III, considering multiple approaches and tools for improving self-understanding, personal development, and leadership mentoring. Contemporary Leadership in Sport Organizations provides a foundational and contextualized body of information regarding thought and practice in leadership to inform and inspire students of sport management. Whether preparing for leadership roles in sport organizations or preparing for teaching, research, and academic study in the field of sport leadership, students will gain a solid understanding of the theoretical foundations of leadership in sport and how it is applied to sport-related organizations of all types and sizes.
"Lencioni ist ein Meister in der Schaffung realistischer und konkreter Unternehmensausrichtungen. Wir nutzen diese Prinzipien, um unsere Mitarbeiter um den Aufbau einer globalen Marke zu sammeln. Riesenapplaus von unserer ganzen Organisation." Brian Scudamore, Gründer und CEO, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Eine Woche! Mehr Zeit hatte Jude nicht, bis zu seinem nächsten Workshop im Kinderkrankenhaus. Und so versuchte er fast besessen, das "Silo-Ding" zu begreifen, indem er alles las, was ihm zu Politik am Arbeitsplatz in die Hände fiel. Aber Jude würde die Antwort nicht in irgendeinem Buch finden. Ganz im Gegenteil: Sie würde ihn finden, und zwar so überraschend, wie er es sich niemals hätte träumen lassen. In seinem aktuellen Buch beschäftigt sich Patrick Lencioni mit dem Einfluss von Grabenkämpfen und politischen Machtkämpfen auf die organisatorische Effektivität. "Silos" sind vertikale Organisationsstrukturen und gleichzeitig ein Synonym für Barrieren zwischen Kollegen. Silos verwüsten Organisationen, töten jede Produktivität, drängen gute Mitarbeiter aus der Firma und setzen das Erreichen der Unternehmensziele aufs Spiel. Sie verursachen Stress, Frust und Enttäuschung, indem sie Mitarbeiter dazu bringen aussichtslose Kämpfe mit Menschen auszutragen, die eigentlich ihre Teamkollegen sein sollten. Das Buch ist eine Fabel, eine realistische aber fiktionale Geschichte, und wird durch einen Theorieteil am Ende abgerundet. Die Geschichte handelt von Jude Cousins, einem jungen und eifrigen Unternehmensberater, der versucht einem Klienten bei der Lösung seiner internen Streitigkeiten und Grabenkämpfe zu helfen. Für alle, die jemals die Absurdität von Abteilungsdenken und Machtkämpfen erlebt haben, ist "Silos, Politik & Grabenkämpfe" von unschätzbarem Wert. "Lencionis Theorie ist einfach und schlagkräftig. Sie kann auf jeden Typ von Organisation angewandt werden." Gary C. Kelly, Vice Chairman und CEO, Southwest Airlines Co. "Ein prägnanter und einfühlsamer Blick darauf, wie Unternehmen interne Machtkämpfe erkennen und beheben können. Patrick Lencionis Schreibstil ist warm und lesenswert und der gegebene Ratschlag fundiert." Michael A. George, Chief Marketing Officer, Dell Inc.
