Exercise 8.1 to 8.7 8.1) Most people have been on school teams or community-based teams at some point in their lives and some of the students taking his course are still active participants in individual and team sports.

Although it is stern in some ways, it also allows all of the players on the team to be involved in practices. Even though the thoughtful persuader coach will decide the game plan in the end, he or she will explain to the players why his or her strategy works, persuading the team members to follow these plans. 8.3) What would be the benefits versus liabilities of being a player coached by a charismatic team leader?
