Golf and the game of leadership

See also

The book, Golf and the Game of Leadership shows how qualities like focus, consistency, confidence, and ""playing by the rules"" all apply to the way you perform in the professional realm.

Author Don McHugh, whose management experience is matched only by his passion for golf, leads you through 18 ""holes,"" including:

Hole #1. You’ve Gotta Love the Game: be passionate about your leadership role.

Hole #5. Visioning: from dreaming to achieving, lay out a future for yourself in the game of leadership.

Hole #6. Posture, Grip, Alignment (PGA): the backbone of a solid game, excellence in fundamental skills is the key to sustaining success.

Hole #11. Feedback: a golfer can tell a slice from a clean shot. Honest, timely feedback is the equivalent in business.

Hole #13. Responsibility: play your own ball and require that others do the same.

Hole #18. It’s Up to You: leadership is an individual game. Don’t just talk a good game -- play a good game.

At the ""19th hole,"" you’ll complete your ""basic round chart"" based on the key concept from each of the 18 holes, and score yourself for each. (And don’t forget to celebrate!).

McHugh is an enthusiastic golfer, a management consultant, a retired U.S. Navy Captain, and a former senior executive at General Motors and Owens-Illinois.
