Note: If this class is cancelled (Tim/medical), the term paper will be adjusted so that Chelladurai’s Model (the subject of today’s class) will be omitted from the analysis used to write your term paper. For the leadership aspects of your paper, only the Managerial Grid and Situational Leadership Models will be used. You will still be responsible for this material on the final quiz. You are also still responsible for completing the Homework listed at the bottom of this post.
The purpose of today’s class is to examine a model of leadership for sport that was developed by sport researchers. The two previous models we looked at were models developed in business settings, and adapted for use in a sport setting. Chelladurai’s Multidimensional Model of Leadership (MML) was developed to help analyze the effect of leader (coach) behavior on athlete satisfaction and performance, helping answer such questions as “What sort of leadership behaviors do female athletes prefer?”
Chelladurai (Cheladurai & Saleh, 1980) also developed a questionnaire (the Leadership for Sport Scale; LSS) to assess leader behavior and also athlete and self- perceptions of leader behavior. questionnaire. The LSS has five subscales that measure leadership behavior (autocratic, instructional, etc.)

1. Read (or re-read) Ch. 9 on Leadership (not the Cognitive Mediational Model) in the text focusing on the MML.
2. Read one of the above articles for a fuller understanding of Chelladurai’s Model and Questionnaire.
3. Bring a draft of your PST program report to next class (1-2 pages double-spaced plus detailed PST procedures/instructions).
4. Bring an outline of your term paper to next class (1-2 pages – point form).
5. Note that I have added three examples of previous students’ PST reports, so that you can get a concrete picture of what your final project should look like (remember they are examples and you are to refer to assignment instructions).
