These surveys clearly illustrate the composition of the crowd, their overt behaviour, and their scalable attitudes towards pre-determined items. Although some investigations do show elements of combining qualitative and quantitative methods, few, if any, existing studies of the sports fan adopt the mixed methods approach as an explicit research strategy.
Rather, being a fan "represents an association from which the individual derives considerable emotional and value significance" Madrigal,pp. All important decisions are made by the leader and announced to the followers that means communication is predominantly one-way.
More recently, Daniel Goleman identified six leadership styles: The pacesetting leader sets very high performance standards for themselves and their group and the leader exemplifies the behaviours that are sought from other members of the group. This paper argues that such an approach is a worthwhile means for gaining a fuller understanding of the sports fan.
Thus, the nature of sports fandom will have implications for the choice of suitable methodology.
Quantitative methodologies allow comparison and replication. Those two dimensions were then used to develop the following four development levels of those being led: The Democratic Leadership Style gives members of the work group a vote or a say in nearly every decision the team makes.
A participating leader passes along the day-to-day decisions such as dividing up the workload to the followers. Situational model of leadership A widely recognised situational model is the model developed by Hersey and Blanchard and the revised model by Blanchard et al.
This survey- based study produced broad data across a large fan population at Premier League clubs, allowing the behavioural patterns of the English football fan to be ascertained.
The telling leader defines the roles and tasks for each follower, and supervises them very closely. Although the Premier League surveys do not utilise any form of statistical analysis beyond the parametric measures of frequency counts and means, Jayaratne introduces a further advantage of a quantitative research design, noting that as well as producing what may be considered more objective data, it may also allow more objective analysis.
Quantitative investigations look for "distinguishing characteristics, elemental properties and empirical boundaries" p. These leaders are good at "selling" their ideas. Thus, it can be seen that quantitative methodologies do have strengths for sports fan research.
Quantitative Research and the Sports Fan Quantitative research designs are characterised by the assumption that human behaviour can be explained by what may be termed "social facts", which can be investigated by methodologies that utilise "the deductive logic of the natural sciences" Horna,p.
This situational leadership style works best when the employee already understands their weakness and is receptive to ideas on how to improve.
For the purposes of analysis of his leadership style with respect to a Situational model, three areas of his career will be looked at separately; his rise to presidency from Vice-President, during the Iran-Iraq War and post invasion of Kuwait.Sources for your educational philosophy are your life experiences, your values, the environment in which you live, interactions with others and awareness of philosophical approaches.
