This research focused on global leadership and change and competitive athletics. Servant leadership, including the five servant leadership variables; altruistic calling, emotional healing, wisdom, persuasive mapping, and organizational stewardship, as well coach athlete relationships, including the three coach-athlete relationship variables; closeness, commitment, and complementarity, were used to analyze athlete perceptions. This study then found correlations of the associated factors to outcome, at team and individual levels. Findings from this study include recognizing the commitment of the head coach as a factor in team wins; individual athlete perception of closeness as related to games started; the emotional healing aspects from the head coach to overall team wins; wisdom of the head coach to how many games the individual athlete played; and the differences between each team as related to individual or team outcome. Conclusions focused on how a head coach values the individual as well as the athlete; how a head coach can impact individual athlete success and be relied upon in times of need; and how high functioning teams strive for perfection across genders and various sports. This study also highlights several recommendations focused on policy and practice within competitive athletics and global transfer.
