Organizational Governance in Sport
Many sport organizations have faced significant media and government scrutiny following allegations of doping, bullying, abuse and mismanagement. With the fundamental role of the board to oversee and govern the organization, to ensure that the organization is accountable to key stakeholders, and to set the culture of the organization, it is understandable why there has been so much focus on the ways in which boards lead organizations and many questions asked about their role. In this video Dr Geoff Walters talks about his research into organizational governance, specifically within the non-profit sporting context. This focus has been led by the challenges and developments within the sport sector.

Interview with Jack Buckner, British Swimming
The series 'Great British Bosses' by Anything but Footy (https://www.anythingbutfooty.com) profiles the women and men responsible for sport in this country - many at national governing bodies - who manage teams, staff, budgets, grass-root participation and overseeing those medal moments at Olympic, Paralympic and elite level. They met in Loughborough with British Swimming Chief Executive Jack Buckner. After a disappointing performance in the pool at the home Olympics of 2012, and then allegations of bullying in the Paralympic programme, followed by the swimmers best medal return at the Rio Olympics for 100 years - it's been a tumultuous few years. Jack took over in May 2017 and he is asked what the first thing he changed was. He tells us how disappointing it is that drugs in sport - particularly his first love of athletics where he won World, European and Commonwealth medals in the 5,000m in the mid 80's - is still dominating headlines but how he backed his 'team' for standing up to alleged drug cheats in swimming. And Adam Peaty, Tom Daley and Alice Tai all get a mention too
Responding to a Child's Disclosure of Abuse
This NSPCC Learning animation shows you how to respond when a child tells you about experiencing abuse. Visit NSPCC Learning for more information and resources https://www.nspcc.org.uk/listen
It is crucial that adults who work with children are able to respond supportively in the moment a child chooses to disclose, and to interact and communicate in a way that helps children feel listened to. The NSPCC’s Let Children Know You’re Listening animation outlines the key interpersonal skills that adults should use when a child discloses abuse and/or neglect, which can help make it clear they are listening and taking the child seriously.
These skills are grouped into three simple directions: 1. show you care, help them open up 2. take your time, slow down 3. show you understand, reflect back.
