About this Course

About the Course

This course, by Dr Matthew Slater (Staffordshire University), explores how we perform with others in sport and exercise. In the first module, we think about cohesion and the factors which make up Carron’s model of cohesion. In the second module, we think about social identity, split into social identity theory and self-categorisation theory. In the third module, we think about how our understanding of leadership has developed over time. Next, we work through Smith and colleagues’ 1979 study on coach effectiveness training. In the fifth and final module, we think about two key strategies to improve team performance as team goal setting and the 3R model.
