CHATTANOOGA 1 PREVAILS AS THE TENNESSEE PGA JR. LEAGUE STATE CHAMPIONS
It was a great day at Windstone Golf Club for the Tennessee State Championship. The teams of Memphis, Murfreesboro, Chattanooga 1 and Knoxville 3 all met at Windstone Golf Club on August 19th to determine who was going to advance to the Regionals in New Orleans. The first rounds of the day went to Memphis who beat Murfreesboro 8 – 4, and Chattanooga who edged out Knoxville after a 3 hole playoff to advance. 


In the Consolation match, Murfreesboro edged past Knoxville 6.5 – 5.5.  Chattanooga continued their momentum from their playoff to take down Memphis in the Championship Match 8 – 4  and reign as state champions and are headed to New Orleans for the regional competition on September 2 & 3. 

Thanks to all the coaches who held a team this year to make this season another successful one. Good luck to Chattanooga in the regional competition!

 

 

OFF THE WALLS with KEVIN WALLS
3 Conversations to Share this Season
For managers and staff alike, conversation is a critical component for success. That's a no brainer, right? Yet regular sit-down conversations just don’t happen as often as may be necessary. There is always an excuse by managers such as "I have too much on my plate" or "I just never get around to it" or the sentiment by staff that they don’t feel comfortable in initiating conversation. All are unfortunate, as dialogue is at the heart of high engagement and sustainable performance.

While chatting about the PGA Championship or a football game is a good thing, managers also need to focus conversations on that of the employee's job. Annually, there should be three types of manager-employee conversations: engagement, performance review and career planning. Each plays a specific role in driving employee engagement and business performance. When and how is less important than actually conversing.
