A guidebook for developing your leadership and networking skills through golf.

Access to the game of golf opens doors to business opportunities for professional development and builds leadership skills. Unfortunately, this access has often been limited to those with club memberships or experience with the game—those privy to the rules, both spoken and unspoken.

FairWays to Leadership teaches both advanced and novice golfers how to navigate a round of golf using six key leadership traits—curiosity, adaptability, empowerment, integrity, mindfulness, and strategy—at various leadership moments on the golf course. Listeners learn how to play the game and how to develop leadership skills and expand business networks through the interaction that golf provides.

Listeners will be better equipped to advance their professional careers by practicing the strategies and techniques revealed in FairWays to Leadership. The book can also be used as a resource in corporate leadership training and in diversity, equity, and inclusion programs.
