Hitting "pause" and trying to get off the golf course by making pars is the wrong mindset. If you do that you are sure to make bogeys so I knew I had to push myself. So I kept pushing and pushing into that "Zone of Discomfort", didn't bail on myself throughout the round and gave myself a chance to shoot 59 with a putt on 18. I'm really proud of that round as it was a magically exhilarating experience."

I'm not saying that we built deWiz all by ourselves. We are team players. I know some things and I don't know a lot of other things". I know golf and I've learned a lot about tech.

There is a family behind them, friends, a manager and multiple coaches that make up the team. So to suceed, you have to be able to handle your team regarding the physical, mental, financial and logistical challenges that arise. Golf is a brutal game and it's a game about managing mistakes. Looking at a professional golf career, you have more failures than successes and that gives you a thick skin that builds up your resilience. Golf gives you a North Star to define what success means to you and to appreciate the journey. You have to truly love the game, whether it's the game of entrepreneurship or the game of golf. And when you do that, I believe you will end up in good places." Special Guest: Markus Westerberg, Co-Founder of deWiz.

Are you looking to hire team members on your golf staff?  GBN's Recruiting Services make hiring easier with our best in class network of Golf Professionals that helps you reach deep into the market to locate your next staff member.Go to www.golfbusinessnetwork.com/recruiting to get started and get ahead of the competition.If you've been listening for a while, you've come to understand how important I believe leadership is to being a successful PGA Professional.  In these times of low retention levels and poor employee engagement, your ability to lead your team and your facility has never been more critical.  It's the reason we're launching a much anticipated leadership program from GBNU here this fall, 2022.  We're going to give PGA Professionals the chance to develop their leadership skills so they can become somebody that people want to follow, somebody that people want to work for, and somebody that can produce results for their facility.  All through the lens of what you, the PGA Professional does every day.  I can't wait to tell you more about it.  And right on queue, we have an episode that can be a masterclass on leadership.  I was so honored to have the chance to speak with our featured guest, David Novak.  David is one of the premier leadership minds out there.  He's the former CEO and co-founder of Yum Brands, which operates KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, and The Habit Burger.  He's been named Chief Executive of the Year, and oversaw explosive growth as the company doubled its number of restaurants under his leadership and grew to a market cap of almost $32 billion.  His marketing background includes such big wins as developing and launching Cool Ranch Doritos, and Pizza Hut's meat lover's pizza…along with one notable marketing mishap, which we'll discuss.  You'll want to hear that.Now after retiring in 2016, David launched “David Novak Leadership” where he coaches leaders using his time tested methods and practices, including Purposeful Recognition.  He's the host of the very popular “How Leaders Lead” podcast where talks with world class leaders every week.  In addition he's a New York Times bestselling author.David is busy to say the least, but not too busy to find time for one of his biggest passions…golf.  He's the definition of a “golf nut” and not to mention,quite a player as you'll hear early in our conversation about a huge accomplishment he achieved this summer.  So David knows golf and he know golf pros.  That's why this conversation is so powerful.  Whether you're in a leadership position, or aspire to get to one, David's lessons here are priceless and ones you can implement the very next time you walk in the door at work.  This was such a pleasure to have this conversation and I'm excited to share it with you.

That would be a dream come true if I could start a golf related business!". That's where the seed of the idea came.

"When demand is greater than supply, there is a business opportunity. I found one in The Golf Sanctuary". "So the idea has been floating around my head for six or seven years. What got me with the simulators when I played Hilton Head or one of those courses it's like, "oh this is cool". But what they did was they threw me into this imaginary world. I went, "oh my God, you've got to be kidding me. We're playing like Machu Picchu, and all sorts of crazy stuff is happening". That I got my juices flowing because I don't know how to hit this shot over a dragon. I've never practiced that shot!

Are you looking to hire team members on your golf staff?  GBN's Recruiting Services make hiring easier with our best in class network of Golf Professionals that helps you reach deep into the market to locate your next staff member.Go to www.golfbusinessnetwork.com/recruiting to get started and get ahead of the competition.Seth Waugh came to the PGA of America after a highly successful career on Wall Street and most recently as the CEO of Deutsche Bank Americas.  His love for golf and respect for the Professionals that power the game were the driving forces behind his move to the PGA.  He's often been quoted as saying his goal in this position is to better the lives of PGA Professionals so they can impact more lives.  It's a noble cause that was never going to be easy, and that has turned even more difficult than we could have imagined.  Seth's tenure has already endured more tough decisions and crises than most would ever handle in this position.  For a while it seemed like the biggest challenge he would face would be the PGA's move to Frisco, TX,  which is now nearing completion.  However, a once in a lifetime global pandemic threw golf into a new stratosphere of demand which quickly erased the constant conversations of how we were going to grow the game and stop the bleeding of a reduction in golfers year after year.  Seth's previous leadership experience in crisis helped him and the rest of the PGA leadership team guide the game through the pandemic as well as provide support to PGA Professionals.  Tough questions have come one after the next.  There was the decision to move the 2022 PGA Championship site after January 6th, should they hold the PGA Championship or the Ryder Cup in 2020?  Now there's the question about how to handle the LIV Tour players as it pertains to the PGA Championship and the Ryder Cup. All while PGA Professionals battle a never before seen labor shortage at a time when demand for play remains near all-time highs.  And that's where we start the conversation in part one of my interview with Seth Waugh.  You will hear how he sees the labor situation and how the PGA is working to combat this challenge.  How does he feel about the work-life balance question?  Is it possible in our industry?  You'll want to hear his answers.

Getting good at golf is hard. Figuring out how to make it fun and engaging for kids is even harder. As Matt Reagan and his Operation 36 Co-Founder Ryan Dailey looked to solve this problem over 12 years ago, they saw how other sports - especially martial arts like Taekwondo and Karate - would progress through levels of mastery by testing students once they had acquired the necessary skills. The result was creating a 10 Division, variable distance gameplay format where students need to shoot 36 over nine holes in order to graduate up to the next level. Listen in as Matt shares the startup journey of Operation 36 Golf. https://files.fireside.fm/file/fireside-uploads/images/1/1ea879c1-a4a2-4e10-bea4-e5d8368a3c7a/1CuV5NFx.jpg "We got three kids to sign up and join the program and that was how the concept started. And then we'd say "oh crap, what do we do with them every week? How do we show they're improving, what do we teach? How should we be testing them and show parents they're getting better? How do we make it fun every step of the way?" "The first five years of our existence we worked on building the program and trying to figure that out. We'd sit down before class, plan for an hour and a half and then kids would show up. We'd run it and say "well that sucked, let's try it again!" and then we would experiment with different ideas. So we had this pretty cool environment where we were just testing group programming with kids and trying to figure out what works to make it fun, but also make sure they are getting better and turning into golfers. And then showing parents, who are the ones signing the kids up for the program, that this is working." https://files.fireside.fm/file/fireside-uploads/images/1/1ea879c1-a4a2-4e10-bea4-e5d8368a3c7a/ZzUDBL0z.jpg Want to learn more about Matt and Operation 36 Golf?

Operation 36 takes the traditional model and flips it on its head. All new players begin on the course. Instead of starting at the tee box, they play from 25 yards away from the hole. Once the player shoots par (36) from 25 yards, they back up to 50 yards, and so on, until they are shooting even par (36) from the full tee box. It's timely, it's fun, and it provides step by step improvement. https://files.fireside.fm/file/fireside-uploads/images/1/1ea879c1-a4a2-4e10-bea4-e5d8368a3c7a/csUzbZFR.jpg (https://operation36.golf/) Connect your business to a new audience with Zencastr's Podcast Marketplace!

This episode is brought to you by GBN University.  GBNU is where today's PGA Professionals come to grow their skills, advance their careers, and increase their bottom lines.  Go to www.golfbusinessnetwork.com/gbnu for more info.Welcome to Season Eight of the Getting Better Now podcast!We kick things off with an important conversation about a topic you're all too familiar with.  There probably isn't anyone listening that didn't either read or hear about the Golf Digest article “The Club Pro Crisis”, published earlier this spring.  Author Shane Ryan dove deep into the personal stories of a number of PGA Professionals, who opened up to him about their struggles in our industry.  For those of us in the business, it was both familiar and a little bit (if not a lot) depressing.  We all read the article saying to ourselves, “Yep, I've done that.”, “That's right, that happened to me too.”, or even “You think that's bad, how about this one?”.  Since the article put a spotlight on why our industry is struggling and what the job of a PGA Professional is really like, the good news is that a lot of people saw it and were awakened to our reality.  Personally, I had former members of mine reach out and ask if all this was true and what I thought we needed to do. Solving this problem has to start with an awareness from decision makers that there is indeed a problem, and thanks to Shane Ryan, the ball is rolling a little faster now.  That's why I wanted to bring him on the podcast and talk more about the article, the people that he spoke to, and his thoughts on what the problems are and how we can solve them.  My goal is to put as much attention on this issue as I can, and hopefully this episode helps.  If this gives you one more opportunity to send something to the leaders at your club to help prove that you need change at your facility, then please use this as a way to help.  You know all of the stories that you'll hear about, because you've lived them.  But don't assume the members at your club or the owner of your course knows them too.  As Shane tells us, Golf Professionals have leverage like never before and an opportunity to force change for the better.  We just need to make it happen.

This prevents company leadership from making necessary changes, and prevents people from feeling fulfilled, recognized, and included at work.

This allows company leadership real transparency into what's happening in their companies—and the motivation to address issues quickly. Our goal is to help create safer, more inclusive companies.

"There is a standard side game that many people play called the Nassau bet. There's a wager on the front nine, a separate wager on the back nine and then you add them both together in match play and whoever wins the most holes wins the overall. So it's three separate bets. Craig and I used to play a dollar-dollar-dollar game. That's what we would call it on the first hole. He'd walk up, look at me and say "dollar-dollar-dollar?" and I'd respond "Absolutely!" "I had software clients out golfing at the same time that (my now Co-Founder) Craig had financial clients out and we serendipitously wound up at the same restaurant. He saw me, walked up and said, "hey, we should have been able to play our dollar-dollar-dollar game on two different courses" and I snap answered him and said, "Man, I can build that, that's a mobile app. No problem!" ...Tom Naramore, CEO at D3Golf.com https://files.fireside.fm/file/fireside-uploads/images/1/1ea879c1-a4a2-4e10-bea4-e5d8368a3c7a/_7TKXh6t.jpg "I met a gentleman by the name of Peter Meng and he spent half an hour showing me his tech. Afterwards all I said to him was, "What do you think about a virtual wallet in a mobile app, two guys playing golf either on the same or different courses? They play, the app does all the math and then the app sends the money to the winner." And that's all I said to him. 24 hours later he called me back. He wrote a business plan, a technical road map for me, a basic marketing plan and voila, the company was started."

What they had to endure makes what I'm doing just not that hard. It's time consuming true, but I have to take the next steps and recognize the great people. People that came before me - both black and white - that stood up, took a position, maintained it and created change."

"At the green grass level we recognize that we have to make a conscious effort to make others feel welcome. That was one of the things that I believe we missed in the 90s. We made a lot of hard golf courses, a lot of challenging facilities, but we didn't really create a safe place for people that were new to the game to come in feel welcome who didn't understanding etiquette or even where to begin. A lot of those things that cause people embarrassment we are able to address early on and doing that to create safe ways for them to learn the game, making them feel like they belong as they make their way from the putting green to the range and ultimately for just one hole or two holes at a time until they get comfortable. Give them ways to have success and feel welcome at the facility from the very beginning."

And if you love to do that, you'll go the extra mile to provide that programming and on-boarding. All of these technology solutions have all been developed to help people better understand and fall in love with the game the way that I have. So that is what I think is most important.

Show Notes and Chris Quotes "We believe that it's never been more important for golf professionals to have tools that save them time and help them deliver great experiences to golfers. That's where we come in to the picture. So that's really the growth part of it. Of the pandemic the question then becomes retention. How do you keep these folks engaged? That really comes down to what type of experience is the golf course delivering. You get folks out there for a league or for nine holes or a practice session. What brings the back, what's going to turn them into golfers for life? What's going to turn them into folks that are going to play say 10, 15, 20 or more rounds of golf a year because that's really the name of the game."

"I work as an entrepreneur with my own business, focusing on thought leaders in the prosthetic industry, specifically small startups who are bringing new technologies to the forefront to help people like myself with limb difference. I am one of two million people in the United States who lives with limb difference - in my case it's a below the knee amputation that I had six years ago. For me, using a prosthesis has empowered my life and I want to bring that same opportunity to others like myself."...

We've been hearing so much about jobs, hiring, and the issues in the workforce today.  But the focus in this episode is on the candidates.  What can you do to try to stand out?  How about some tips on what the best resumes look like?  And what I believe is an underutilized resource, LinkedIn.  How can you optimize your profile and use the platform to help you land your next great job.  Believe me, LinkedIn can help.  We discuss all this with Jeremy Nichols.  Jeremy is a recruiter for Gecko Hospitality focusing in Florida and specifically the Tampa area.  With Jeremy we get a little different perspective than the golf industry focused conversations we typically have.  Jeremy understands the hospitality industry and has been recruiting for a wide variety of positions for over 20 years.  He talks to tons of employers and candidates every day, and he knows what works and what doesn't.  Speaking of LinkedIn, follow Jeremy for daily tips and insights into the hiring world and subscribe to his YouTube channel where he's creating regular videos that can help you with anything from interviewing, negotiating, getting hired and more.
