While the golf course has long been a second board room for many executives, I’d be willing to say that it’s the best way for entrepreneur to size up potential business partners as well. Whether someone is a good or a bad golfer is irrelevant, how they carry themselves on the course can tell you a lot about someone.
How do they handle adversity? Are they patient? Do they have anger problems? What is their ability to focus? The list goes on, by watching how someone acts on a course, you can get a much better sense of how they will perform in a business setting. It isn’t easy to hide your true emotions while playing golf.
