I love you / hate so much

Image

Is equally important for a team to have a strategy in sports image like in corporate finance.

Sports moves people, make them feel emotions that are consistent with the identity of teams and if it is credible with what they are communicating, they will be following them.

Historically, in any sport there are loved and hated teams. They build their reputation on what they say and do and say and do again, although good results can impact in their good reputation.

In soccer, the best example of teams loved by many people and hated by others are Barcelona and Real Madrid. Two teams with different personalities that causes infatuation, joy, love, anger and hatred of thousands of fans worldwide.

In Mexico the same case happens between America and Guadalajara. They are loved and hated. Antagonistic to each other from the beginning. The image that they communicate to their fans has helped and positioned their marketing campaigns and they have made the most of its “fame”.

In basketball, Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls are two loved and hated teams, although Miami Heat has also won the tag of a team loved by some and hated by others.

In the NFL, the San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys are loved and hated teams. They have found successful messages to communicate and been consistent to them.

In baseball, Los Angeles Dodgers and the NY Yankees are loved and hated teams, also the Boston Red Sox. History, championships and recent successes have helped them but from my point of view something is missing to them to take advantage of this.

And finally, Formula 1 teams Ferrari and McLaren are two loved and hated teams. Their drivers have done much to create this image, although Red Bull has the tag of a team loved by some and hated by others too.

Create, getting or keeping the image of a team that does not cause anything to fans is like trying to go diving without an oxygen tank. Forcing an identity just to get attention is like to get a mask and project something that is not true, and is clearly evident.

The fans of these loved and hated teams not only grew in number. Teams came out of the ordinary, innovated and found arguments to project with their sports image, beyond its history, players and coaches.

Yelena Isinbayeva, the beautiful image of the heights

isinbayeva

Few sport images project congruence as Yelena Isinbayeva. Besides being a beautiful woman she projects an image of women focused in work.

Yelena communicates through her personality security, showing what she wants and where to go in her life and balancing her personal and professional life.

Beyond the cold image that many russians communicate, Isinbayeva changes that perception and when she is interviewed, she evidences, through her eyes, happiness and positive emotions. Sometimes her eyes flows between positive emotions and the desire that she wants to go when she is looking to the floor.

After a successful jump, she is passionate and intense in her celebration but, when she fails, she tightens her facial expressions and contains her emotions of annoyance and frustration with herself.

Her style of dress is modern and elegant with elements like rings that she uses when she is competing. Her hairstyle varies in the length using it with a braid or a short ponytail. Also it is practical and simple, this express that she is not complicated to choose her hairstyle.

She’s Yelena Isinbayeva. A muse of heights, a woman who flirts with the air. She will be surely missed as a professional.

Mexico in the Confederations cup: A protocol guide to the mexican team to communicate a positive image in Brazil

Imagen

Visiting an exotic country like Brazil is seductive. Walking on the streets, go to the most important tourist places and the football stadiums that in a year will be hosting the World Cup.

It would be good to question players and managers of the mexican team how much and what they know about Brazil, beyond just knowing just about their sports heroes and stadiums. What do they know about their culture and traditions, What is well accepted by them and what is not? 

To the country that you go, do what you see.

Here is a brief guide to the mexican team:

1. Conversation

Communicating with brazilians is warm, complex, informal and highly personal.

The way that the brazilians greet men and women is similar than we do in Mexico. Men shake hands and greet women with a kiss on the cheek.

A good way to “break the ice” with brazilians is talking about soccer, obviously, but there are also another good topics of conversation as weather, traffic (if you are in Sao Paulo), all about the Confederations Cup and the next World Cup, music and their economy. Avoid conversations that create controversy, for example, asking who is better between Pele or Maradona or rivalries between brazilian and argentinian teams.

Talking about poverty, security, deforestation, religion, racism, corruption, social inequality should be avoided.

Brazilians are proud of their ability to laugh at themselves. They like spontaneity. Even, are considered noisy because everybody wants to talk at the same time and with a high volume voice.

Do not be surprised if you are constantly interrupted by them. Do not think they are rude or have no interest in what you’re saying.

They like to touch people in a conversation. Their intention is to be as close as possible to communicate confidence and establish a long-term relationship with you.

They are not used to give orders but advices so they can feel easily offended with unfriendly conversations.

Two. Breakfast, lunch and dinner

The main meals are breakfast, between 7 and 9 am, lunch, between noon and 2 pm, and dinner starting from 7 pm.

Brazilians usually arrive 15 minutes late but in social events they used to arrive between one hour and two hours later.

They like to observe the manners of people at the table and like when a person knows how to eat and drink with education. They always wash their hands before eating and never touch food with their hands, except fruits and chicken. They use a knife and a fork and use a napkin after eating and drinking.

Never use chopsticks and do not burp while you’re at the table.

In a toast, raise your glass and say “Saúde”. Drink it slowly immediately after saying it.

Three. Public Behavior

Spontaneity is so valuable for brazilians but that does not mean you can do what you want.

When you meet someone you say your name and give a handshake. Women are greeted with a kiss on the cheek.

When greeting someone you can say, “Oi, tudo bem? (Hey, you all right?), Or “Olá, como vai” (Hello, how are you?). Eye contact is important for brazilians. An informal way to say goodbye in Brazil is “Tchau” (Goodbye) and give a handshake.

Talking about salaries, marital status and age should be avoided, as well as sexist conversations.

Avoid joining the thumb with the index and form a circle, this is an insult.

What does Gigi Buffon´s image say?

Imagen

He is a goalkeeper who takes life seriously. More than ten years being the goalkeeper of italian national soccer team. He has made ​​history and has printed the best of his image to the “azzurris”.

Gianluigui Buffon has a defiant way of looking and a mischievous smile. His seductive and sexy personality seek to catch the attention, and sends a powerful message of provocation. Safety from his head to his feet.

His look is an element that readily distinguishes him. A 3 day beard, pins in his hair, also the color and designs of his sweaters gives him a modern look to his image and breaks the stereotype of a traditional goalkeeper.

His hoarse voice is intimidating. He doesn´t leave words when he speaks showing that his image is full of self-confidence without concealing his most serious side.

This serious personality that he projects in interviews and press conferences, breaks the image that we see of him on the field, when he makes jokes with coaches and teammates.

Gianluigui Buffon is a sports image that has become a true and total legend in the italian goal.

Calm, Tri, calm

Imagen

All soccer fans have a coach in their heads that gives instructions, moves pieces like a chessman, removes players who show no character as well as those who do not have the right attitude to win the game.

 

The coach’s role today is no longer limited to that. Now, he should be able to understand better their players, manage their egos, lead and motivate them to achieve personal and group goals.

 

The image of a coach should be aware that if he is anxious and desperate the player will the same as him. His example, calm and how he andel his emotions are fundamental to communicate his personality to his players. Dont´ confuse this with the absence of passion, enthusiasm and courage.

 

The personality of a coach is projected in his team and how his players drive their successes and failures. A coach must not limit his efforts on tactics, rhetoric, turning their players in a club of optimists or people who can easily be “brainwashed” and manipulate. He should transmit a positive energy and project the image required at a specific time.

 

In the last games, Chepo de la Torre looked anxious and desperate. The pressure to win games it is absorbing him and he looks confused, discouraged and alone.

 

Mexico´s soccer team needs reassurance. It is easy to say with words but Chepo should be aware that he should manage well his energies to project more calm to his players.

 

Confederations Cup is a great opportunity to change the negative image left by the “Tri” in World Cup qualifying, but things will not change, bringing another coach. He has to choose the right attitude.

 

The wardrobe of Chepo should be more relaxed. It evidences authority but this message is not close enough to his players. This is the time when they need support, empathy and a “dictator” without an iron image.
