It’s been said that you can’t grow personally or professionally without developing self awareness. Knowing how you’re perceived by others, what your strengths and weaknesses are, how you handle stress, and how you impact those around you, are just some of the elements of self awareness, that can go a long way in helping all of us reach enjoy success at work, and also at home.
For Cameron Doan, the Head Professional at Preston Trail in Dallas, this pursuit of developing self awareness for himself and his staff members, has paid huge dividends. For Cameron, he’s been able to lead each team member with a higher level of effectiveness, since he knows their individual needs and how they will respond in certain situations. As he tells us, this has also allowed him to raise his level of self awareness and understand how his staff members perceive his actions.
As the 2018 National Bill Strausbaugh award winner and a recent inductee into the Texas Golf Hall of Fame, Cameron has spent his career devoted to getting the most out of staff and helping them achieve their personal goals, no matter what those goals may be. He's mentored countless PGA Professionals onto successful positions throughout the industry. You’ll hear him describe the methods he uses to achieve this and plenty more valuable insight.
You'll also hear Cameron's thoughts on the most critical skills for PGA Professionals, you'll learn the six types of motivation, and the four areas he focuses on, which he learned from a Hall of Fame basketball coach.
This episode is a little longer than normal, but I thought it was too good to split up into two episodes. This conversation is a wealth of knowledge from an expert in development and mentorship, and contains a lot of great lessons for all of us.
