I’m glad to announce the special edition of Culture Impact Journal on Culture and sports

There is a story behind this special of the Culture Impact Journal.

A few years ago, the FIFA asked Huib Wursten to help them provide research-based frameworks for understanding how Culture influences the interaction between coaches, players, and club owners in a rapidly internationalizing sport. They needed such a framework for worldwide Capacity building for coaches. So a draft plan was developed….and then Covid happened.

This special on Culture and sports gives a taste of the deepness and the range of what was in the plan

Culture and Nation building. Some legitimized the intervention in Afghanistan as nation-building, reforming this country into a Democracy with a transparent Rule of law. However, after the collapse, the questions are raised if it is possible to export Democracy and the rule of law from one specific type of culture with a totally different mix of fundamental values.

  Culture and Sports coaching. A good piece of advice in coaching diverse teams is: “different strokes to different folks” What to do if the group is diverse in nationality and you know that leadership, communication, and motivation take different shapes. This task seems to be impossible. We will describe the experience of international coaches on what to do and what not to do.
