This chapter aims to overview the glass cliff perspective, including the primary tenets, possible antecedents, and potential outcomes. It summarises the findings from a meta-analysis of glass cliff studies, including those in sport. The chapter also aims to apply the meta-analytic findings to the sport context and offers theoretical and practical implications. Professional and career choices that women and men make could also explain the glass cliff. Indeed, a number of researchers have examined potential gender differences in advancement aspirations and the factors that prepare people for advancement, such as human capital and social capital investments. These studies suggest that women, relative to men, are more likely to have played collegiate sports, earned accolades for the quality of their play, and longer occupational tenures. If women are more likely than men to obtain precarious leadership roles, it follows that the organisations they lead are also likely to perform poorly.
