Develop the Right Business Attitude to be Successful in the Workplace
by Lorii Myers
When business professional Lorii Myers decided to write a motivational book that used “golf as a metaphor for life,” it was because she saw the game of golf as a perfect reflection of what a person needs to do to be successful in their career. Myers: “I love golf because, as in any game, you are always trying to improve. You are always working on your abilities and skills, but you also want to improve your score. In the working world, you want to get better at what you do, but you also want to improve your skill sets and knowledge base so you become a better employee.” Myers named her book 3 Off the Tee: Targeting Success to represent the kind of choices we all want to make in our daily work life. Not only do you have to read the course, you have to know how to deal with the hazards. You even have to deal with your own abilities, knowing that a slice could cost you a stroke or two. “When you make a bad play,” Myers says, “in golf or in business, it’s not the end of the world. It is just time to regroup, work a little harder, and get back on track.” It’s clear that Myers’s purpose is to help others make the most of themselves no matter if they are new on the job or high up on the corporate ladder. Utilizing the framework of a round of golf, she takes readers through the career game from the first hole to the eighteenth, focusing our attention on what makes a businessperson successful every step along the way. The “Front Nine” is about self-perception and self-direction. It unveils and discusses the finer points of self-improvement, the development of confidence, the value of ethics, and how to become a positive influence at work, which involves learning how to communicate fairly. The “Back Nine” delves into effective success strategies for employees and employers alike and is a call to action to engage in proper leadership, empowerment, teamwork building, and learning how to become proactive effecting positive change.
