    National and Organizational Culture in Norwegian Elite Sport: The Account of National Handball Head Coaches

    In this article, Skille, Hansen, Abrahamsen og Chroni show that at the international level results can be achieved even when embracing, and performing, under humanistic and social-democratic values, which deviates significantly from the commonly embraced win-at-all-costs approach.

    Despite a call for rethinking the epistemological understanding of the acculturation and its relation to sport and exercise, European sport and exercise psychology has remained unchallenged territory.

    Fra helt til syndebukk: En studie av hvordan en landslagstrener i fotball kombinerer transformasjonsledelse og machiavellisk ledelse

    I denne artikkelen av Trine Lise Andersen studeres lederstilen til landslagstrener i fotball i lys av toppfotballens rasjonalitet, der seier trumfer alt. Spørsmålet som drøftes er om treneren brukte både sin ofte kommuniserte transformasjonslederstil og en machiavellisk lederstil, og endret eventuelt balansen mellom disse lederstilene seg i forhold til lagets resultater. Antagelsen var at den machiavelliske lederstilen ville bli mer fremtredende når resultatene uteble.

Using a short term sensory ethnography approach, we elaborate on the idea of multisensory emplaced learning and propose an organic metaphor – mycorrhiza – to both methodology and learning.
