Get Better at Your Golf: Get Better at Your Business
She Kan! Golf is a program or a resource developed for clients who are golfers. Truly, my intention is to ambassador and advocate for business combined with golf, especially for women. She Kan! Golf exists because of my desire to give back to golf, a sport and a culture that has given and provided me an immeasurable amount of “good stuff” over my lifetime.
Recently, in a conversation with Scott Robbins, (PGA Member Professional and Instructor at The Old American Golf Club) about this very topic, he suggested the question, “What does your golf game say about you and your business?”
This is a great question, (Thank you, Scott) which gave me the motivation to come back to this post and re-do a Page I created a few days ago.
My answers to his question are as follows:
1. My golf game says I’m committed to keeping my skills and knowledge of the game current – through practice, play, and keeping up with what the professionals and popular amateurs (women and men) are doing (via multi-media channels and locally).
2. My golf games says I’m committed to giving back to golf, and committed to keeping golf and business connected by providing and finding opportunities to golf with clients, potential clients, synergetic business partners, and people in the golf business (pros or industry career people).
3. My golf game says I’m comfortable around golf in any setting (private, semi-private, resort, public – match-play, stroke play, scrambles, etc.), I know the rules and etiquette and honor them, and if you invite me to golf with you you’ll be pleased you did!
Fred Shoemaker, (Extraordinary Golf) said, “ I believe that the real purpose of games is to develop skills that will be useful in life, and golf is a perfect example.” Personally, I believe that as I know and I love golf; and as I feel many of my business colleagues, friends and family members love golf, as well; Golf needs lots of advocates and innovators in order to survive and remain meaningful in today’s culture and economic climate.
Add to this from Leonard Finkel, “Golf is life and life is golf. The lessons learned are interchangeable.” She Kan! Golf exists to acknowledge and carry forward these ideas and much more, not only for individual golfers, but for groups of golfers who either work or serve together in various capacities within their lives.
Therefore by starting with the question, “What does your golf game say about YOU and YOUR BUSINESS?” I begin the process of bringing golf and life together in my Business and Personal Coaching Services.
Each golfer I meet is different; meaning she or he shows up for Golf-Life Coaching with their own unique answers to “What does your golf game say about YOU and YOUR Business?” We all have different goals for golf, life and business, different golf, life and business histories, different skills or abilities – meaning new, intermediate or advanced; so all my Coaching is catered to each person individually.
What we share in common is Golf – and a desire to use what we know and appreciate about the whole body of golf to improve the directions we are going in all areas of our lives – our golf games, personal and business lives. And, just as exciting, we’re committed to keeping golf in the conversation where life and business is concerned and, this is terrific!
