Effective leadership is essential in any sports organisation, both in the boardroom and on the training pitch. Leadership in Sport is the first textbook to examine sports leadership in the round, across both management and coaching environments. 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 leadership
  • strategic leadership
  • leading effective change
  • diversity in leadership
  • communication and empathy
  • motivation 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.

Duncan Murray is also with the School of Management in the UniSA Business School, Australia.

Within the applied sports setting, Paul is a qualified sport psychologist who has worked with Olympic level athletes and top coaches seeking to increase their leadership and overall coaching performance

Review:

"The consistency in flow, as well as the additional elements (e.g., case studies), is suitable for instructors teaching an introduction to sport leadership, human-resource management, and/or coaching at the undergraduate level, although likely as a complimentary or reference text," Michael L. Naraine, International Journal of Sport Communication

"Leadership in Sport is an excellent resource for undergraduate students studying leadership, as well as professors and academicians looking for a textbook to use in teaching leadership to undergraduate majors in areas such as sport management, sport marketing, and sport communication," James T. Morton, International Journal of Sport Communication
