DO YOU OWN A RESTAURANT? THEN YOU NEED A COACH.

To some degree the restaurant experience is like a sports team, there is a hierarchy, players must possess the right skills and there is a need for strong leadership in a dynamic and fast paced environment. 

Choosing the right people is crucial. Training the people you have is IMPERATIVE! 

As a restaurant owner, long time lacrosse coach, former player and now a consultant, I focus on people, making training fun, improving communication and creating systems that last. 

The key staff you employ or players on your team are essential in setting the tone, therefore, they need to have very definitive skills, a strong foundation of what they do and why they do it. Once they have that knowledge and ability, we focus on relationships with others, where people know how and who to communicate with to get results.  Finally we take a look at performance at the top level because when your people know themselves and others, what we do, how and why we do it, then they become leaders who get results through innovation and being fully engaged.    

The best teams I have been apart have clear roles and expectations for all members as well as sharing a culture that is unmatched.
