- “Remember the Titans” is on reserve at Neilson (VHS). Again, a reminder that it is your responsibility to obtain a copy of the film to be analyzed at your own expense (Netflix recommended).
- Read the Paper#2 description carefully to make sure you understand the assignment completely. I have included links to Situational Leadership resources – you are of course free to find others on your own.
- Kristen Gilroy and Lizzie BelBruno will be presenting “Remember the Titans next Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2010. They will have 30-45 minutes to present their topic: Situational Leadership and Remember the Titans – in which they will attempt to cover all the points in the assignment using video examples/clips from the film. You will have an opportunity to query and challenge them as they present. They will hand out a viewing guide (or e-mail it to you shortly before the start of the class). All presenters are free to contact me for assistance (24 hours notice please).
- Here is the very rough viewing guide we whipped up quickly in class today that you can use in your viewing of the film prior to Tuesday’s class (recommended method): Titans Viewing Guide
- Here is a copy of the Situational Leadership Model (SLM) case studies we looked at in class today: Situational Leadership Scenarios Updated 2007 Here are my answers (obviously open to interpretation): Situational Leadership Scenarios Answers. If you have a different viewpoint you can post your comments in the box below for your classmates.
- I will post the remaining schedule of films and presenters by Sunday evening.
Key Points From Today’s Class
- Sport psych (SP) history: trait (50’s-60’s), behavioral (60’s-70’s), and finally interactional approach (80’s to present) to research/models.
- Bert Carron and colleagues
- SLM is drawn from the area of Organizational Behavior or Organizational/Industrial Psychology.
- Managerial Grid was precursor to SLM.
