This subject examines the competencies necessary to effectively lead others in elite sporting environments. Core components include self-awareness around communication and leadership style, managing relationships with others and cultural considerations in high performance sport. Students also explore organisational leadership models and how they apply in athlete preparation, staff development and sports performance. Developing leadership skills in others (athletes and staff) are also discussed, with particular reference to the co-development of personal wellbeing and excellence. Students engage in a self-reflection process, to better understand their own traits, and explore how these individual traits might influence their personal leadership within a range of different high performance sport environments.
