IMPACT THE MOST AMOUNT OF PEOPLE, AS DEEPLY AS POSSIBLE, IN THE MOST POSITIVE WAY
For many years, I've had the pleasure of working with many talented professionals. I've also experienced first hand the power of mentorship, patience, and respect in a workplace and have strived to exemplify that in my leadership positions. I've had the pleasure of being part of teams that strongly believe in investing into their staff, understanding that they are the greatest asset to the business. Now I’d like to share that with you.
I strongly believe that the restaurant and cooking industry is on it's way to finding new and better ways to treat staff better and build a more healthy working environment. In the midst of how COVID-19 has affected our way of life in a drastic way, it's a chance for us to take a step back and see how we can develop more sustainable business models that promote a true care for the people who work tirelessly to create great experiences for our guests, while also being profitable.
Here are brief descriptions of the consulting services that I offer:
Leadership and Management Soft Skills Training
Managers are relied on to provide the resources to help our staff be successful in their jobs, while being sensitive to the individual needs of each of our team members. Using different techniques including team building activities, one on one coaching, and direct and concise feedback, I would like to help you to achieve the goals that you have for the personal development of those who lead your business..
Menu Development and Cost Analysis
Think your menu needs a new perspective? Not sure if your menu can be altered to help you achieve your financial goals? With experience owning and operating a restaurant as well as developing menus for many other kitchens, we can work together to construct a menu that will fit the overall concept of your restaurant while keeping your bottom line in mind.
Front and Back of House Relationship Dynamics Training
A common issue in many restaurants is strained relationships between our service staff and the chefs who work in our kitchen. Some of these tensions can be deep rooted in our restaurant culture, and untangling the mess can be a heart-wrenching experience. Let me provide you with an outside perspective on how we can help solve some of the problems by identifying the tension points on your team, then finding actionable solutions that can make a difference in your overall team dynamic.
Developing a Clear Vision for your Business
Though this is a necessary step in any new business, it's also useful to revisit your mission statement and vision along the way. Having worked alongside business owners to write employee handbooks and a clear purpose, I would be excited to work alongside you to develop yours. A concise set of expectations for your staff will help them to understand how they can be a strong asset to the direction you want your business to go.
Please remember that these are just a few ways that I believe I can help, but can customize to what you need.
