The pacesetting leader expects and models excellence and self-direction. This is the player that scoops exactly as he is instructed. He opens, runs past the threat in his gap, and vertically crashes without hesitation.
The authoritative leader mobilizes the team toward a common vision and focuses on end goals, leaving the means up to each individual. This is dictated by the coaches. The common vision is pretty simple–authoritative leader’s physical techniques look just like Navy’s players on Friday night.
The affiliative leader works to create emotional bonds that bring a feeling of bonding and belonging to the organization. These leaders fix mistakes immediately after they occur and when the Quarterback keeps instead of pitches, he fixes it when he encounters the same situation the next time.
