A few days ago I was talking to a group of business people at a business networking group and was asked..
What does Business Golf do that just doing regular business networking does not?
One of the most powerful aspects of playing a round of business golf with someone is developed around the relationship built during the time playing golf. That trust developed during the business golf turns into being much more long lasting than exchanging business cards at a business networking function.
There is one thing all golfers have in common..they play golf. Golfers tend to gravitate together at business networking and their commitments to securing a date to play golf with a potential business associate are taken more seriously. My studies have showed business connections last longer after a round of golf than after a follow-up ‘Coffee Chat’.
The most valuable derivative of the time, energy and funds spent to play business golf is the award each person is given each other of being someone they place high on their calling tree. 90% of the time a person will pick up the phone, read the email first or even respond to a text message first from someone they played golf with before they would bother with connecting with someone they only know from their name on a business card.
In business golf is very impacting to a business’ development for the long haul . Try it and let me know how I can help
