(Sarasota, FL) The EWGA (Executive Women’s Golf Association) has blown the lid off a well-kept secret. It’s a secret that gives women a leg up with their bosses and clients, puts them on the fast track at work and brings them closer to their families. It’s a simple secret, really; the power of golf.
In the new book, Teeing Up for Success, the EWGA has compiled stories of insight and inspiration from extraordinary women on how they have used the game of golf to achieve their goals. For Sarasota long time resident and FCCI Executive, Lisa Krouse, golf has become an important part of her life since taking up the sport at the age of 50.
In her chapter, “Bad Shots and Good Breaks; Playing to Your Strengths in the Universal Games of Golf and Life,” Lisa recalls her first attempts at learning the game. Despite the frustrations early on, Lisa’s passion for golf grew deeper as she began to apply the same leadership principles talked about at corporate roundtables. As a sought after speaker, Lisa has shared the similarities between golf and leadership in her speeches and presentations on HR and employment law topics. She has become a face for Sarasota’s Economic Development Corporation (EDC) and is highlighted in their video ad campaign “Choose Paradise” and is also featured in their print campaign, “Going Granular.”
“Golf has brought me wonderful friends and has made solid business connections for me. It has also given me the opportunity to be in position to do something special for Sarasota,” says Lisa.
The book offers over 30 compelling stories of how golf can make a difference in one’s life. From EWGA’s CEO Pam Swensen’s “The Power of the Dimpled Ball” to Debbie Waitkus’ “Turning Golf into Gold,” these stories share their most intimate recollections of how the game has contributed positively to their lives and careers.
For many of these women, golf has been a door opener and has presented them with countless opportunities. It has given them equality, credibility, and has opened the lines of communication, allowing for easy conversation and providing a great setting for relaxation and fun.
Delve into these chapters and enjoy these women’s stories of wisdom, courage, faith, and success. Prepare to be inspired by this beautiful compilation woven together by a love for golf.
