The Power of Business Golf
Valuable Relationships Happen on the Golf Course
Business is about building trusted relationships. The most successful executives are those who have strong interpersonal skills and can leverage sports to build trust, camaraderie and respect. The good news, the average business golfer shoots around 100. It is not about the number you shoot on the golf course, it's about the business golf number you receive after the game.
Just look at what the leaders in business are saying about Business Golf.
"Many of the best entrepreneurs I know are not only great golfers; they are avidly skilled at the art of advancing a business relationship or even closing a deal during golf." Forbes Magazine 1/24/2013
"It may be a canard that more deals are struck on the golf course than in any other venue." Businessweek 4/5/2012
"Golf teaches you about a person's reactions in adversity, how they deal competitively with situations because with golf there is such an easy mechanism to take advantage of the rules," Rynecki writes. "I'm not worried about their skills as a player, but rather how they conduct themselves, as golf, like business and life, will test you in a multitude of ways." Inc., 6/6/2011
"Intriguingly, a recent study found that bosses who don't play golf are paid 17% less on average than those who do. Could this be because the qualities that make a good golfer a mixture of hyper-competitiveness with strategic thinking and coolness under fire .. also make for a good chief executive?"
The Economist, 11/21/11
"Golf isn't merely a leisure sport. It's the martini lunch of the modern workforce, the buoyant venue where business gets done." Golf.com 7/2/2008
