6.6 Leadership

Assessment

All ICC Foundation Modules are competency based. They describe the behaviours that you need to demonstrate in order to be accredited. The evidence of successfully demonstrating theses behaviour may be:

  • Observational: as observed, and noted, by a National Umpire Manager appointed coach
  • Video-based: video evidence of your behaviours demonstrated in a match
  • A combination of observation and video-based evidence

6.6 Leadership

You must successfully demonstrate:
Leadership, both on and off the field.

ICC expects its umpires to be able to show world class leadership – both on and off the field. Leadership can mean different things and include different styles. ICC requires its officials to lead by example and be world class role models in and around the cricket match. The required behaviours have been adequately covered within the PCT Code and behaviours document earlier in this course (see Module 3 Attitude and Teamwork).

If an umpire seeks to be an International or Elite level match official, we expect his personal and work behaviour to reflect that standard – to lead by example and to constantly demonstrate best practice.

ICC expects its umpires to lead by example or ‘walk the talk’ in the following areas:

    • Hard work
    • Innovation
    • Improving the controllables
    • Integrity
    • Enthusiasm / passion
    • Approach to learning
    • Emotional intelligence / people skills (building relationships)
