Sports Leadership: Winning With Your Mind


    Sports leadership on the field conjures up all sorts of expectations - with the main one being 'success'. When a sporting team loses a game, you may hear coaches say: 'we didn't have the mental ability to win', 'there was no team unity and nobody stood up to lead', or 'there just seemed to be a lack of leadership accountability'. When the coach is then asked to explain their comments about leadership, the answer tend to address only the technical aspects of the sport. Sports leadership intelligence is still in its infancy, and while leadership behaviour is well advanced in business in the private and public arenas, more work is required to develop the correlation between leadership behaviour on and off the field and improved sporting performance. Sports Leadership: Winning with your Mind combines the practical knowledge of leadership, sports leadership and personal development that author Ern Prentice possesses with the understanding of human behaviour that leadership psychologist Ryk Bliszczyk has attained to create a unique work that progresses the understanding of the emerging discipline of sports leadership. Themes covered include: peer leadership, behavioural change in sport, muscle memory, functions of the brain, cognitive therapy, emotional engagement, leadership behaviour codes, and leadership affirmation programs.
