Abstract

"In recent years there has been an increased focus on the importance of the environment&#xD;for the development of elite athletes. In order to understand the factors that contribute&#xD;to or limit an athlete’s sporting development, it is not enough to study only the individual but&#xD;the whole environment in which the athlete develops. The purpose of this chapter is to investigate&#xD;what characterizes a successful elite sport environment in Danish badminton. An elite&#xD;sports environment that continuously manages to create senior results at the highest international&#xD;level and win medals at the European championships, the World championships and&#xD;the Olympics. The study was organized as a case study of the national elite sports center in&#xD;Badminton Denmark (BD). Data was based on interviews with players, coaches and managers,&#xD;observations on training and in competitions, meetings and analysis of documents. The&#xD;environment was centered on self-understanding based on “us against the rest of the world” and a fundamental value in the environment was to create intelligent players while focusing&#xD;on individual development through high training quality. The organizational culture was&#xD;characterized by being: 1) a well documented, quality oriented and dialogue-based learning&#xD;environment, 2) an environment with hard competition and 3) an environment with proximal&#xD;role models."&#xD;

Abstract

"Research on coaching in sports has long been concerned with how coaches interact&#xD;with their players. In recent years, more research in sports psychology has been conducted on&#xD;the coach’s role. However, research on coaches’ co-operation with leaders and staff in the clubs&#xD;has received little attention. There is reason to argue that the way coaches handle this part of&#xD;their profession can have a huge impact on how well they are able to do their job. This study&#xD;explores how three experienced Norwegian elite football coaches (average 25 years of elite&#xD;experience) interact with others in their clubs creating room for themselves and achieving their goals through micro-political activity and orchestration, i.e. coaches’ actions to increase&#xD;their own influence and power within the organization. We collected data through semi-structured&#xD;interviews. Then we used content analysis based on a theoretical framework consisting&#xD;of the orchestration metaphor and studies on micropolitics and the three aspects of micropolitical&#xD;proficiency. The results and discussion describe how the coaches handle the negotiation&#xD;process before joining a club, how they handle managers and employees, and how they have&#xD;developed their micropolitical skills through their careers. Their knowledge about and attention&#xD;to these processes were integral parts of their coaching and leadership challenges. Knowledge&#xD;of orchestration and micropolitics seemed to be important for the coaches in the current&#xD;study. We therefore provide some suggestions as to how coaches can improve their ability to&#xD;handle these elements in coach education and suggest possible future research and applied&#xD;implications for coaches."&#xD;
