The Parallel Between Sports and Leadership

TASA ID: 1056

There are a lot of similarities between sports and the business world. We use a lot of sports language in our daily business interactions. We “pitch clients”, “drop the ball” when we make a mistake or miss a deadline, we “put together a game plan” for a project. In addition to sharing the same language, we can learn a great deal about leadership from sports coaches.

REPUTATION DAMAGE EMANATES FROM ACTIONS AS WELL AS WORDS

“It takes years to build a reputation but only minutes to have it destroyed.”

TASA ID: 2156

For someone who has served as an expert witness in approximately three dozen defamation cases, there is little question that negative communications disseminated in writing (libel) or verbally (slander) or both can be devastating to the image, reputation and/or good will of an individual, business, institution, public sector entity, or any other type of recipient targeted.  Defamation is normally defined as a false statement, published to a third party, that is damaging and is meant to harm and results from negligence, reckless disregard for the truth or malice. 

What Covid-19 Has Taught Us About Leading Through a Crisis

TASA ID: 1056

Leading always has challenges! However, we have never had to lead through a crisis like Covid-19. The past three months have brought challenges like no other. During a time of crisis, leaders are required to lead and manage effectively. Managing the urgent needs of the present and taking decisive actions. Strong leaders guide people to the best possible eventual outcomes, which demand seeing beyond the present in order to anticipate obstacles ahead.

PART II: The Queen Bee Syndrome

TASA ID: 10544

Queen bee syndrome was first defined by G.L. Staines, T.E. Jayaratne, and C. Tavris in 1973. It describes a woman in a position of authority who views or treats subordinates more critically if they are female. This phenomenon has been documented by several studies. In another study, scientists from the University of Toronto speculated that the queen bee syndrome may be the reason that women find it more stressful to work for women managers; no difference was found in stress levels for male workers. An alternate, though closely related, definition describes a queen bee as one who has succeeded in her career, but refuses to help other women do the same.

PART I: Why Workplace Bullying Is A Serious Problem

By: Lawrence J. Fennelly CPOI, CSSM & Marianna Perry CPP, CPOI

TASA ID: 10544

Workplace bullying is repeated inappropriate behavior, direct or indirect, whether verbal, physical or otherwise, conducted by one or more persons against another or others, at the place of work and/or in the course of employment, which could reasonably be regarded as undermining the individual’s right to dignity at work.

An isolated incident of the behavior described in this definition may be an affront to dignity at work but as a one off incident is not considered to be bullying.
