Interpersonal Conflict in Sports Coaching
The coach-athlete relationship is commonly considered as the most significant relationship within sports. Effective relationships are usually described by working close together, understanding and supporting each other, just as by showing mutual respect and a positive attitude towards the collaboration. However, not every relationship works effectively; misunderstandings, conflicts or arguments are rather likely to happen. That said, the current research project is aiming to develop a comprehensive model of interpersonal conflict considering antecedences, underlying processes as well as consequences within the frame of the coach-athlete relationship.
