Management Golf: What's Your Handicap? - Do you believe in action-oriented planning, the speedy execution of ideas and realistic goal-setting in business management? So do the authors of this book--and that's why they've developed this fun, innovative evaluation tool that any business can use to assess its own operations and identify weak spots and trouble areas. Management Golf has been arranged to resemble a round of golf: 18 of the most important business factors were selected to match the 18 holes in a golf game. Topics such as technology, strategy, resources, finance and customer service each get a score, and a graphic layout of each hole is shown at the end of each chapter. When you're done playing the game, it's time to figure out your handicap--the factors you need to work on to get your company playing "above par." Once you know your score and your handicap, you can address the real challenge of this book--using what you've discovered about the inner workings of your company to boost innovation and creativity among your management team and make the business run better than it ever has before. As a game, Management Golf is great fun. As a self-assessment tool for your business, it's invaluable!
Shrink Your Handicap : By Phillip Lee and Jeff Warne - A behavioral psychiatrist and top 100 golf instructor offer a unique perspective on how to understand and overcome a golfer's greatest obstacle: the brain. Anyone who thinks golf isn't a mental game has never played a round with his boss, has never missed a shot he's hit a hundred times on the driving range, and has never swung wildly on a crowded first tee. Golf is a mental game, and the best way to improve your game is to understand the psychological processes that make the sport both frustrating and satisfying. In Shrink Your Handicap, a behavioral psychiatrist and a top 100 golf pro have formed a unique collaboration that shows readers how to overcome the mental obstacles that keep them from playing their best. Focusing on anxiety reduction, technical skills, and the importance of establishing a pre-shot routine, it offers step-by-step instructions on how to relax, focus, and perfect the swings that are vital to any golfer's game. More effective than high-tech golf clubs, and less expensive than private lessons, this remarkable book can help any golfer reduce their handicap by increasing their understanding of the mind-body connection.
