-Larry Gelwix References Leadership Interactional Approach Coaching Style Definition: leaders can be relationship-oriented or task oriented (how the coach acted depended on the situation)
Relationship oriented (democratic): focus on developing and maintaining good interpersonal relationships Task oriented (autocratic): focus on achieving goals and the task at hand Relationship Oriented Behaviors "Forever Strong OFFICIAL Trailer." YouTube. YouTube, 07 Aug. 2008. Web. 29 Apr. 2013. Seek out Rick in detention center
Sits with each athlete at practice
"I don't build championship teams, I build championship boys."
Perception of coaching behavior Task Oriented Behaviors Drills
Goals on the field and for outside lives
Team scores not individual player- team mentality
Change Rick’s position-betterment of the team

High athlete motivation - want to please coach and brothers Rick Trailer Coach Gelwix Clip Overview of Psychological Concepts External Rewards Pleasant stimulus is removed after undesired behavior Both Rick and Quentin have to sit out a game after violating a team rule Consistency (Quentin still sits out at the National Championship Game) Punishes behavior, not the person. Punishment is agreed upon by all players Ricks Father also uses this technique in a different manner aversive stimulus is presented following an unwanted behavior Marcus at the prison punishes Rick's behavior with bathroom cleaning (consistent, punishes behavior and not the person, is informal) 13:30 Rick is sent to juvenile detention center after second DUI 16:29 Positive Feedback 23:26 Highland

The degree to which members of a group work together to achieve common goals, related to the sport.

If a team member drops a pass, the entire team does push ups --> individual player's output is evaluated

"Practice doesn't make perfect, practice makes permanent."
After losing game, the team is required to run stadium stairs due to their lack of cohesion on the field

The team runs in the morning together while throwing the rugby around at the same time Task Cohesion: Social Cohesion Degree to which members of a team like each other outside of the sport Each team member receives a letter from a former player who wore the team member's same jersey number--> instills a "brotherhood" distinctiveness
Team rules:
The boys volunteer at the hospital as a team working with the children’s cancer ward and doing landscaping
--> proximity

Team meals after the game at all you can eat buffet
--> proximity

The team gathers in the hospital together after an accident involving one of the teammates and they grieve together --> social support 1.) Builds the team's trust
2.) Up to them to tell the coach if they break the rules
3.) Completes their bridge of trust Social Cohesion Social Cohesion Leadership can be task or relationship oriented- interpersonal relationships and drills in practice

Cohesion on and off the field- team goals, team chant, team dinners, team runs and rules

Positive and Negative punishment- helps stop a undesired behavior and or encourages a behavior (bathroom/sitting out fame)

Motivation to get of of juvenile detention and to succeed on
