Sport research has indicated that the coach has an important influence on the long-term process of sport socialization as well as the creation of a current motivational climate for his or her athletes. Among the various approaches employed for studying the dynamic between the athlete and the coach in sport psychology, models of leadership behaviour have played a central role. Two of the most important frameworks that have guided the study of leadership in the athletic domain have been Smith, Smoll, and associates’ Mediational Model of Leadership (Smith, Smoll, & Curtis, 1979) and Chelladurai’s Multidimensional Model of Leadership (Chelladurai, 1993).
