Regardless of what industry sector you work in, there’s a good chance there will be many high profile execs in your company who play golf..
So if you want a secret weapon to help you move up the ranks, golf can really help. If the CEO asks you to play golf and you are a good player, you will probably get invited out more often. This is because people always want to bring a “ringer” to the golf tournament to better their chances of winning. There is no better way to get management’s attention than spending 4-5 hours together on a golf course.
If you work in sales there is a good chance that you will be asked to attend or support a charity golf tournament. As a salesperson, your ability to build relationships and connect personally with the client is imperative to your success and growth of sales. When you play, talk golf, and network with your clients about their golf game versus just the new product you are trying to sell, the better your chances of closing a deal.
I am sure those who golf can relate to what I am saying. If you are not a golfer, it’s never too late to learn. Get involved at a local golf course with your local golf professional.
Once you start playing, I am sure you will be surprised by how many networking opportunities you will find through golf.
