Engaging Teams Through Uncertainty
Organizations are struggling to support their teams during this period of uncertainty. Many of the activities we love and cherish are now “out of bounds”. I was asked by the Professional Golfers Association of Canada to provide some tips for their members. They are a membership based association of 3,600 golf professionals from across Canada and around the world. They are the third largest PGA and second oldest in the world. The PGA of Canada develops, promotes and supports its members in living a better life and earning a better living while growing participation, excellence and passion for the sport of golf.
The challenges they face are similar to many other industries – closure of businesses (golf courses, restaurants and retail), keeping equipment and grounds maintained, and ensuring that their teams remain engaged and committed while they are on this indeterminate layoff. A “cap’s off” to them for being proactive for their members.
