Sports Management is the combination of planning, organizing, directing, controlling, and leading for sports organizations. Sports-related businesses include professional and collegiate athletics, fitness and racquet clubs, hotels and resorts, and sports-related consumer businesses (athletic apparel, sports drinks and nutrition, etc.).
Lessons from leading sports coaches may be applied in the workplace, where managers motivate employees to perform to their potential. Coaching in organizations may be defined as a management style, or as a subset of behaviors that managers perform, that enable people to learn lessons from their experience.
