Think you know someone you’re looking at going into business with? Invite them for a round of golf –before documents are signed – the results may surprise you.

A vast array of natures, limitations and qualities are exposed over 18 holes.

  •  The arrogant winner, unable to contain delight at others short comings;
  •  When a player is hitting in the rough, frustrations surface and valuable opinions can be made as to how those frustrations are managed;
  •  An exhibition of patience, professionalism and general good golf manners won’t hold longer than 9 holes if out of character for a player;
  •  The Big One… The Cheat! It’s likely a cheat on the course will be comfortable enough to cheat in business and life.

59% of executives believe that the way a person plays golf is the way he or she behaves in
business.

67% of respondents say that a person who cheats would probably cheat in business.
