A company CEO, Tim, took his sales
managers away for a combined sales meeting and golf
weekend. He had long been irritated by one of the managers,
Ned, and had come to disregard him in general. His disapproval
was generally known. Another well-intentioned manager
was in charge of the foursomes for the mini golf tournament
and decided that the best way to build a better relationship
between the two was to put them in the same foursome
to work as a "team."
Ned was a "new" golfer and
inexperienced in such events, and showed up with borrowed
clubs and little else. By the 8th hole, Ned had lost
a dozen ProV1 golf balls, given to him along with many
other nice gifts by the CEO. Ned had not thought to
bring any golf balls with him so he asked Tim if he
had any more he could have. No answer.
Ned spent the rest of the round losing
the balls kindly donated by the other two in the foursome,
joking about his inability to play, and everything else
he could think of as the CEO fumed and proceeded to
deteriorate with each shot.
Not only was the CEO furious about
Ned's seemingly ungrateful attitude, he perceived a
lack of substance and maturity, woeful planning and
consideration of others and more importantly, was horrified
about Ned being with clients or his new sales associates.
The other managers felt responsible for Ned's further
fall from grace, and also disappointed in their own
experience that they had so anticipated.
It was a downer of a day in spite
of the beautiful setting, the generosity of the CEO,
and the camaraderie of the team in general.
