COOK Company Philosophy— Steve FergusonCook Company philosophy emphasizes the beliefs and attitudes which encourage individual contribution toward the success of the group. To be successful, we must always …Produce quality products in a timely mannerMaintain a close relationship with customers to better serve themGrow through innovation while being aware of what we make and whom we serveRemunerate by sharing the profits of success in a manner that respects the individual in relation to the groupUse profit as a standard for measuring excellenceTake pride in the company and its achievements
COOK Group— Steve FergusonWhat are values? Values are rules.Morals are values for judging others.Ethics are value standards for behavior. Values are learned and are a part of our lives. Is it notit interesting that we often ask:What are your values?Do you have a sense of value?Is it a question of values?Is the information of value?What is the value?Values for LivingCreate, compete, and achieve.Be proud of who you are and what you do.Have a love for life.Take care of yourself and your family.
Cook Leadership Philosophy — Steve FergusonLeaders must…Prepares for any event, reacts when the event takes place and analyzes what happened. Ready, fire, aim! The leader reacts, but not always to plan and sometimes before all facts are known, and when time permits, analyzes the event, what happened and what was done. History becomes the future plan.Admits mistakes, corrects them, benefits from the experience, and forgets themA leader …Has the responsibility for the work of others and the accomplishment of projects.Leads people and manages things. The leader’s actions determine the attitudes and beliefs of associates. The leader is a guide who demonstrates how to achieve but does not dominate the course of achievement.
Leaders must… — Steve FergusonReflect the values of the CEO and companyLead, instruct, and coordinateAlways check the progress of subordinatesMake decisions quickly and decisivelyPromptly communicate verbally (An e-mail or fax is never as good as a verbal communication)Create and move ideas promptly into action Never be vindictiveUnderstand value expectations and behave ethically at all times (Ethical standards are the most important charge to every executiveUnderstand that COOK is not a democracy
Everyone has a starting point for almost anything they do,and this illustrates my building process, and begins with… Dreaming – This has been my personal key starting point for almost everything I do – much like visualizing a golf shot…BEFORE – DURING and AFTER the shot. For me…almost every dream I’ve HAD… has come TRUE… or even better. NEXT WE MOVE TO -Casting your Vision to your staff and anyone responsible for carrying out your vision! No matter how this communication gets done! It’s about putting everyone on the same page. NEXT –Story Telling – should describe the features, benefits, experiences, or the value that will be receive… also it’s about TELLING who you are and what you stand for. MOVING TO – The ever important Action Steps - make sure this is clear to everyone involved. THEN REMEMBER TO – Have some FUN in the process… For GOD’S sake we are in the entertainment business.
Leaders vs. Managers — Steve FergusonLeaders master the context of their mission. Managers surrender to it. FROM ► TOAdminister, imitate, maintain ► Innovate, originate, and developFocus on structure ► Focus on peopleRely on control ► Inspire trustHave short range view ► Have long-range perspectiveAccept the status quo► Challenge the status quoAre classic good soldiers► Ask what and whyThe Changing Management MindsetFROM ► TOPeople as an expense ► People as an assetManaging others ► Leading othersControl ► CommitmentCompeting ► CollaboratingRelying on rules ► Focusing on outcomesUsing hierarchy ► Using networkConsistency/ sameness ► Diversity/ flexibilitySecrecy ► Sharing informationPassivity ► Risk-takingIsolation ► Involvement
There are (2) VERY POWERFUL components with regard to leadership are - 1st The Power of Attraction 2nd Being…Genuine & Authentic We have all been in a room where problems/ solutions are being discussed, and when it comes to making THE KEY DECISION, everyone looks to just one person for approval, many times that is not the appointed leader for that group. In this scenario the TRUE leader is the one with the most influence! Leadership is about INFLUENCE… nothing more or nothing less!
Vision. Outstanding leaders articulate a vision congruent with the deeply-held values of followers, a vision that describes a better future to which the followers have an alleged moral right. Passion and self-sacrifice. Leaders display a passion for, and have a strong conviction of, what they regard as the moral correctness of their vision. They engage in outstanding or extraordinary behaviors and make self-sacrifices in the interest of their vision and mission. Confidence, determination, and persistence. Outstanding leaders display a high degree of faith in themselves and in the attainment of the vision they articulate. Theoretically, such leaders need to have a very high degree of self-confidence and moral conviction because their mission usually challenges the status quo.Image-building. Outstanding leaders are self-conscious about their own image. They recognize the desirability of followers perceiving them as competent, credible, and trustworthy.
Role-modeling. Followers identify with the values of role models whom they perceived in positive terms. Outstanding leaders act as spokespersons for their respective organizations and symbolically represent those organizations to external constituencies.Outstanding leaders communicate expectations of high performance from their followers and strong confidence in their followers’ ability to meet such expectations. Selective motive-choices. Outstanding leaders selectively stimulate those motives of followers that the outstanding leaders see as of special relevance to the successful accomplishment of the vision and mission. Inspirationalcommunication. Outstanding leaders often, but not always, communicate their message in an inspirational manner using vivid stories, slogans, symbols, and ceremonies.
What Makes a Good Manager? — Jack Welch I prefer the term business leader. Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion. Above all else, though, good leaders are open. They go up, down and around their organization to reach people. They don’t stick to the established channels. They’re informal. They’re straight with people. They make a religion out of being accessible. They never get bored telling their story.— Jack WelchChairman & CEOGeneral ElectricHuman Behavior is determined by — Bill CookCulturally based values that are taught through family association (Values are not homogenous throughout cultures)Identifying leaders - Potential leaders can be identified by the following traits:Lead by example – they work along side fellow workersMay possess charismatic personalities that stimulate a desire to followAre sensitive to other’s reactions – take nothing for grantedHave ability to communicate and tosell ideas and themselves
Look for multiple ways for people to apply for a job… Google Forms, Facebook, Your Web Page, etc. Also examine the check boxes at the bottom of the page. Look for diversity in skill setsLeadership skills— Bill CookMANAGEMENT skills can be taught but LEADERSHIP skills such as vision probably are inherent. Management skills are based upon predictability while leadership skills are based upon unpredictability.LEADERS COMMUNICATE with SENSITIVITY and are aware of each individual’s reactions; they often react intuitively in their relationship with others. Communication of wishes and desires is a unique tool of effective leaders.LEADERS SELL themselves to others; they desire to be liked, respected or both. DEVELOPMENT OF A LEADER REQUIRES both mentoring and education — Bill CookLEADERSHIP CYCLE INCLUDES:1ST stage–Over manage 2nd stage–Under lead 3rd stage–Off and RunningA COMPLETE LEADER must also be a good MANAGERLeadership skills — Bill CookThree-sided foundation for complete leaders are —INTEGRITYEXPERTISEAMBITION
Right NOW… How many of you consider YOURSELF a “BRAND”If you think you have more than (4)….Please name a few… Especially if they are unique!As we begin to drill down into this topic we should begin with a definition………..and what better source than Wikipedia.
Here’s what I have LEARNED a “BRAND” is NOT:– A brand is not a logo– A brand is not an identity– A brand is not a product A Brand is a customer’s gut feeling about a product, service, or organization. It’s a customer’sgut feeling, because brands are defined by individuals, not bycompanies, or organizations. It’s a GUT FEELING because people are emotional, intuitive beings. IT’S NOT WHAT YOU SAY THE BRAND IS… IT’S WHAT THEY SAY IT IS. So…WHY IS BRANDING SUCH HOT TOPIC? People have too many choices and too little timeMost offerings have similar quality and featuresTrust comes frommeetingand exceeding customer expectations. SO,I believe our goal in the branding process is to CREATE A TRIBE OF FOLLOWERS for which our tribe (members/ customers) believes there is NO substitute.
In trying to define who WEwere and wanted to be. I knew I was never going to be able to claim that we were the BEST in Almost any category, but got luck and fell into and untapped Unique Selling Position of just who were becoming. Personal Paradigm Change— Steve FergusonMove From ► Move To – The New RealityPeople as an expense ►People as an assetManaging others ►Leading othersControl ►CommitmentCompeting ►CollaboratingRelying on rules ►Focusing on outcomesUsing hierarchy ►Using networkConsistency/ sameness ►Diversity/flexibilitySecrecy►Sharing informationPassivity►Risk-takingIsolation►Involvement
These are some examples of success stories that revolve around attention getting, theme building & story telling as part of almost everything we did! Also it’s about segmentation of your customer data base. Remember - what I have LEARNED a “BRAND” is NOT:– A brand is not a logo– A brand is not an identity– A brand is not a product

What are the (3) main reasons you would want somebody to go to your web site/ or Facebook page or blog?
The goal this process of celebrating just about everything under the sun, is to create the illusion of lots of activity, excitement, fellowship, diversity in the messages, etc.Remember, the success of each and every message-campaign, promotion, pales in comparison to the precipitation of your course actively levels. Trying to full the soft spots in your tee sheet!
Theme is a part of BRANDING and should be consistent throughout any/ ALL projects – ALWAYS have a call to action, and multiple collateral pieces like posters, other signage, punch cards, gift bags, etc.

Work toward PULL!Permission Marketing !!!Marketers feel that this is a more efficient use of their resources because advertisements are only sent to people that are actually interested in the product. This is one technique used by marketers that have a personal marketing orientation. They feel that marketing should be done on a one-to-one basis rather than using broad aggregated concepts like market segment or target market.In the United Kingdom, opt-in is required for email marketing, under The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003. This came into force on the 11 December 2003.Permission based marketing is believed to have been developed by Seth Godin, a well-established international marketing guru at the turn of the century. A key element of "permission" based marketing is that you are in essence, purchasing someone's time and getting their "attention" which has become increasingly valuable in what may be termed the 90-Second Economy

There are few bigger traditionalists than me, but I realize we need to start thinking out of the box.

Summary: Google+ just passed 40 million users and Facebook last month passed 800 million users. The problem is that one number is total sign-ups and the other is active accounts. Can you guess which is which?People are using all types of social networks to self-publish, share, connect, reconnect and establish an array of communities. This is happening in both professionally and personally. Facebook is not 20 times the size of Google+; it’s even bigger.

COMPLIMENTARY rounds without giving up the farm – We ALL have debit or obligation to the game of GOLF, for ME the more I gave, the more I received!In every junior golf program in the world there is a STRONG disconnect between the lesson tee and the golf course, so we developed and idea on how to get kids on the golf course. There was always a point after the evening leagues that no one played, so… Only 4 Rules:Rule No. 1 Parents would have to walk and caddieRule No. 2 Parents could not play until the student/ child could play 9 holes (from their tees) in 2 hoursRule No. 3 When they reach the 2 hour mark the entire family could walk and play for FREE! Rule No. 4 Carts where not allowed, we wanted to kids to fall in love with golf, not the cart. However once the 2 hour mark had been meet, they were permitted to rent them.More importantly, we started to change the culture at Smock; we started seeing more and more families.
This is about Giving Credit, but more importantly it is about sharing!I believe you should share 80% of everything you know, but you should NOT share the other 20% of what you think about, working on, or in variety states of development with other folks in our industry.
Women control 80% of an average household income. So when I hear a golf industry person make the statement, the women here don’t buy anything, it says more about the person making the statement than the women.
