Lisa A. Kihl, PhD, associate professor in the School of Kinesiology, and Vicki D. Schull, PhD, lecturer in the School, co-authored “Gendered Leadership Expectations in Sport: Constructing Differences in Coaches” in the Women in Sport & Physical Activity Journal. The article examines the gendered nature of sport leadership by studying female college athletes’ perceptions of leadership associated with athletic coaching. Empathy was found to be a gendered leadership attribute associated with coaching, and contributes to systemic forms of dominant masculinity within sport leadership.
