Have you heard people say:
“I am on top of my game?”
At The Game Within we believe that leaders and organizations are engaged in all kinds of games. By games we mean competitions – or challenges – that carry all of the requisite hopes, dreams, fear, joy and pain, including:
• The thrill of competing individually or on a team
• The discipline of strategy and execution
• The glory of winning, leading and becoming profitable
• The satisfaction of performing well and continuously growing
• The legacy of inspiring and motivating teams and generations
What many of our clients fail to recognize is that beyond the games that comprise their external work lives, there is also an inner game – and a journey to be walked – that trumps all of the others. That is what we call The Game Within.
To excel at this Game Within – and to become a total leader – means you identify and master five critical domains of being and doing we outline in our Total Leadership Process (TLP).
These domains develop a deeper level of personal integration and, importantly, pursuing mastery of all five domains is absolutely crucial to becoming a total leader. The Game Within uses these domains, blending them with golf, to create an incredibly effective tool for developing total leaders.
Total Leadership Performance Coaching
Using golf — both on and off the course – as the medium, our coaching engagements will transform you, your senior executives, your “hi-pos,” your middle managers, your company or your cause into consummate total leaders who reach and inspire peak performance. Through the individualized, custom senior executive career tracks and performance objectives you outline, the TLP will be introduced, developed and reinforced in one-to-one executive coaching sessions that create the self-awareness, alignment, integration and accountability it takes to master The Game Within and develop Total Leaders.
The Game Within Experience
The Game Within Experience is a full or half-day golf outing designed to introduce and reinforce the principles of Total Leadership Performance. Through the Experience, participants are taken on an 18- or nine-hole journey that applies the unique blend of fundamentals used by elite golfers to personal and organizational performance. When encountered on the golf course, these universal concepts of Total Leadership Performance create moments of self-discovery and learning that fuel new levels of self-awareness, personal ownership, productivity, creativity and leadership in individuals and teams. Because of its flexibility, The Game Within Experience can readily adapt to client needs and objectives, including:
- For Leadership and Board Development
- As a Sales and Donor Cultivation Tool
- To Create Unique Corporate-Wide or Cause-Related Golf Outings
- As a Golf Course or Club Value-Added Offering
kampioen: The South African Journey of Champions
In the South African language known as Afrikaans, kampioen (kahm-pee-oon) means champion.

This immersion experience enables senior executives and their spouses or partners an opportunity to join The Game Within’s Christo Schutte on a tour of his homeland and a guided retreat through South Africa.
