An Analysis of Sex, Leader Behavior, Leadership Style and Coach Player Interaction.
Keane, Francis J.; Cheffers, John T. F.
The purpose of this study was to describe the relationship of sex, coach behavior, leadership style, and coach-player interaction in a university setting. A statistical experiment was designed using a population of 10 coaches (five male and five female) and six randomly selected players from each coach's team. The Leader Behavior Description Questionnaire-XII (LBDQ-XII) was used to record the player's perception of the coach's leader behavior, and the Least Preferred Co-Worker Scale was administered to each coach to obtain a measure of the coach's leadership style. The Cheffers Adaptation of Flanders Interaction Analysis System (CAFIAS) was used to describe player-coach interaction in terms of selected parameters. Results indicated that sex of the coach was not a factor in leadership style or behavior and that significant differences exist within rather than between the sexes. (Author/DS)
