Volleyball holds course to revamp management

The Botswana Volleyball Federation (BVF) is hosting the African Volleyball Confederation (CAVB) management course in a bid to reinvigorate the administration of the game. The course, which ends today, attracted participants from the BVF affiliates and commissions.

Dr Tesfay Asgedom from Ethiopia is the course facilitator and told Mmegi Sport that management remains a challenge for most volleyball bodies across the continent.  He said it was important to have people who have the ability to drive volleyball in all aspects.

“We need people who have the ability to lead and managers who can come up with strategic plans for the federation.  Most people who are in executive committees are former players and others are active players.  We do not have people who have been trained in the field,” he said.

Asgedom said those with management skills should be aware of sport governance.  He said Botswana has brilliant players, but the challenge is lack of leaders. He said the country lags behind other African countries. Asgedom said he has administered the course in 15 African countries.

He said the volleyball governing bodies in respective countries have changed their management approaches for the better.  He expects the course to change the manner of management within the BVF. Asgedom is however concerned with the few women in volleyball management positions. 

“There are a few number of women in volleyball leadership on the continent. The

executive director of CAVB is a woman from Egypt. We must give women more opportunities. It is discrimination. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) says 20% of the executive committee must be women,” added Asgedome.

He said it does not mean that women should just be given opportunities because they are women, but that they should be trained.  He said women have the ability to run organisations just like men. BVF president, Daniel Molaodi said it has been a long time since the BVF held a management course.

“We have leaders and administrators that we expect to run our clubs, commissions and activities in the most effective manner. They have done so partly because they are managers where they work. Management is management be it in sport or a beer club. The principles are the same. It only differs on how you customise them in your area,” Molaodi said.

He said the course was meant to empower the participants, who will in turn empower their colleagues. Molaodi said organisations grow because they have good leaders.

Some of the topics covered during the course included sport governance, decisionmaking, stress management and effective time management.
