This unit explores leadership as a socially constructed collaborative relational experience focusing on the interactions and constructions of personnel in the sport management context. This multi-level systems approach aims to facilitate an integrated understanding of leadership and governance. Leadership in various contexts such as sport for development, in national sport organisations and professional sport clubs, and leadership in non-Western contexts will be examined with a focus on shared leadership, authentic leadership, servant leadership, gendered leadership and collective leadership. Collective board leadership will be specifically considered in the context of identifying the key functions of directors and boards when discharging their strategic, compliance, performance oversight, and fiduciary responsibilities in the governance process.
