Group 7:
Jennifer Novak, Tewabech Negasi, Carolina Rovell, David Childs, Rafael Cisneros

About the Movie
In 1999 Coach Ken Carter (Samuel Jackson) accepts a coaching position in a high school located in the poorest area of Richmond California.
He is hired to bring cohesiveness to a very dysfunctional team full of disrespectful players
Throughout his employment (the course of the film) Coach Carter, along with some of his players, and the Richmond community as a whole, display many leadership styles and characteristics.

Application to Health Care
Coach Ken Carter
Played by: Jamuel Jackson
Timo Cruz
Played by: Rick Gonzalez
Rebellious student and player that is the
first to act out against Coach Carter.
Strengths and Failures
Richmond Community
Transformational Leadership Style
Lack of Committment
The lack of clarity or buy-in prevents team members from making decisions they will stick to (Lincioni)
Since the moment Coach Carter came to Richmond and announced everyone who wants to be apart of the team has to sign a contract to play, Timo Cruz had a problem with that so he walked off the team
After rejoining the team Timo Cruz quits again after the coach addresses everyone about their grades
Ethics v. Morality
Ethics :applying moral Principles in conducting right and wrong behavior based on good and fair Judgement
(Ledlow &Copppola,2011)
Morality: What is viewed as right and wrong based on set guidelines or standards (Purtilo & Doherty,2011)
The Ethics of the contract
Healthcare face ethic issues regarding treatment of patient
Garbage Can Model
Organized chaos when making decisions where the information is not understood(Ledlow & Coppola, 2011)
Coach Carter was placed in a chaotic situation
Flight decision: moving from one area of concern to another
Health providers face uncertainty everday and have to focus on more than one task.
Coach Ken Carter
Enforces strategies that allow those around him to reach their highest potential (as students and athletes)
Creates a strong team of respectful athletes
Physical force may have worked for some students, but will not work in all other situations
Timo Cruz
Is able to unite his team through his struggles
Has an inability to commit to anything for a long period of time
The Parents
Coach Carter held a parent meeting to discuss his contract, rules and expectation for the upcoming season
Parents were angry, unable to see the big picture, but wee solely concerned with their personal child's playing time and scholarship opportunities
School Administration
Based on Jim Harvey's speech structures
Richmond Community
Ability to form decisions as a group
Operate with low standards and expectations
End results are not to full potential
Lincioni's 5 Dysfunctions of a Team: Inattention to Results:
Members tend to care about something other than the collective goals of the group
Focus put on personal success instead of the successes as a team
Principle was upset with the back lash she received from the media and community
A few teachers were also upset with Coach Carters request for progress reports on each player
Missions and Values
Coach Carter valued respect
He wanted a team that could work together towards one goal
He promoted selfawareness and teamwork
We wanted to better not only the athletic capabilities of his players, but enhance their lives all together.
Narcissist Theory
Machiavelli is the type of leader who is known to be feared

Still suggests qualities of a good leader
Coach Carter instills fear within in his players by showing them that being part of a team does not only consist of only playing basketball, but to show commitment for the team you play for. Coach Carter set guidelines with Timo and he must make up for all his missed conditioning if he wants to continue to be a part of the team.
Is the situation-influenced theory that suggest that a certain situation influences the leader to adapt a style that is most fitting to circumstances at hand.
These leaders are known to be charismatic, intellectual, and inspirational/motivational
In this video we see the drastic transformation in Timo.
He went from a rebellious and non compliant player to understanding the real meaning behind Coach Carters rules and behaviors.
From this point in the movie, onward, Coach Carter will use different leadership tactics in order to adjust to the new attitude of his players.
