Getting Ahead

One of the things that most of the guys used to have to learn to do if they wanted to get promoted to Division manager or higher with my company is to get a set of golf clubs and learn how to play golf. I always thought it was kind of silly. Not playing golf because that actually sounds like fun to me, but just the fact that if you weren’t part of that buddy buddy clique it was really hard to join the upper ranks.

Thankfully that has changed over the last few years and the focus has gone off of the people that just survived and hung out together to people that can actually execute a good plan and make money for us. That’s one of the reasons I finally decided to start trying to move back up. Now that it is seniority and performance based, I am more than happy to participate.
