… a few months ago I was speaking with Scott McNealy who not only has profound insights on leadership like “dunk ‘em under the water’, but also knows a thing or two about golf and life. In college he was captain of the Harvard Golf Team and his son Maverick has been the #1 amateur golfer in America. What Scott told me was, “You can learn more in a round of golf with someone than you can learn anywhere else, except maybe living with them for a week.” So if people ask why CEOs golf, actually it is the best way to understand someone’s true character and how they respond to all situations.

Scott continued, “there’s another saying I like about golf: Those who don’t cheat at golf might cheat in life but those who do cheat at golf will cheat in life.” Think about that ….
