ADGR 7716 Leading and Managing Transitions in Sports (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

Transitions are a fact of life in all fields – and clearly in sports. College athletes become professional athletes, coaches. Professional athletes retire. Athletes become executives in sports management and executives in other fields that benefit from their goal orientation and ability with teams. Even if roles remain constant, technology is always evolving, changing leadership responsibilities and skills. Understanding change and effective strategies to master is essential to sports leadership. Course examines transition theories; motivations and values that drive our transitions; rituals and strategies for building anchors during uncertain times; identifying and managing conflict during times of change; theories of grief and hope that affect them; habits that hinder and foster transitions; and proven qualities that help us master transitions-- resilience, grit, faith, emotional intelligence, support and courage.
