Skills of a sports leader

Extracts from this document...


Skills of a sports leader There are many different people who are sports leaders some are famous and well known and others are not. Sports leaders have to have certain qualities and skills to make them prosperous sport leaders and for them to succeed in their job. Different sports leaders have to have different qualities and skills but mostly all sports leaders need the same skills. I have listed all the skills and qualities that as ports leaders needs and explained each one for each skill or quality I have compared two sports leaders. Time management Time management is deciding what activities need the most time and prioritising. You have to focus on what is most important and what activities your group will most benefit from. Sports leaders need time management skills so that he can focus on the things that need most time and know what they are doing. A netball coach will have to arrive at the session half an hour before it is to begin whereas Jose Mourinho the Inter Milan manager will have to arrive 2-3 hours before so he can set everything up. Evaluation Evaluation is evaluating your sessions and deciding if your session worked well or not. ...read more.


Fabio Capello the England manger will have to decide which players will play in the match and also decide who will play in case of an injury. A fitness instructor will make decisions for their client about what they have to do to become fit and decide on a routine the client has to follow. Knowledge A sports leader needs knowledge so that they can teach the session and teach the participants new skills. They also need knowledge in many areas so that they can do different things and not just one. Alex Ferguson has lots of knowledge about football and is very good. A PE teacher will have knowledge in lots of areas but will not be as good as Alex Ferguson because he only focuses on one sport. Communication A good sports leader will need to be able to communicate. This is sharing, listening, and understanding information. Communication is split into verbal and non verbal. Verbal communication is when you talk to the group and non verbal is using demonstrations and your body. Martin Johnson and Kevin Pieterson both have to be able to communicate with their team and listen to others views and opinions. ...read more.


Ambition If a sports leader is ambitious they are more likely to succeed and want to be successful and achieve things. Jose Mourinho is very ambitious he wants his team to be the best and for people to say that he is a good manger for Inter Milan. A PE teacher will be ambitious but not as ambitious as Jose Mourinho she will want her class to improve but will not expect them to become amazing at PE. After comparing the sports leaders all sports leaders have to work hard and have to have various skills and qualities but certain factors do affect how good you are and if you posses that skill or quality. All sports leaders are better at certain things than others because they either have more experience or because they work with different people. Sports leaders are all different because not all if them work in the same sport and also some leaders work with professionals and some with amateurs and the people the teach are all different ages so the sports leader has to adapt to who they are teaching. For example if a sports leader works with children they have to adapt to them and teach things at a slower pace because children do not grasp things as easily as people who are older. ?? ?? ?? ??
