What has been the primary casualty in our hyper-connected society? RELATIONSHIPS. Technology makes it easier to connect with people, but our ever increasing reliance on technology has cost us most of the in-person interaction which truly build relationships.
Golf is a four hour (or more) adventure through fairways, greens, water and sand, and remains one of the best ways to build and maintain solid business relationships.
The hidden benefit of golf is that it can be used as a portal to view how people think. As you play, you get to observe people in situations that reveal honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, judgment and character. How someone conducts themselves on a golf course mirrors how they conduct themselves in business, and in life. Add the game that has been called the “international language of business” to your professional tool box.
This course is for business professionals with little to no previous golf experience who are interested in learning how to use golf in business.
