Perhaps you’ve discovered that the head-down, nose-to-the-grindstone work ethic is simply not enough to climb the corporate ladder. The informal networks that many men have built over the years have proven, time and again, to propel their career aspirations. Many of these networks are developed and fostered on the golf course. If you’re not out there, you’re definitely missing out on a critical component of your professional development toolkit.
