Teamwork is the Key to Success
One of the most valuable skills of a hotel executive is the ability to keep all the staff focused on the prize. Internally cultivating a higher level of teamwork, leadership, responsibility and service goes a long way in furthering the success of the hotel, and in retaining the best employees.
The finest hotel executives are skilled in motivating the staff, fostering teamwork, and can keep the various teams focused on providing quality service in their area. If there are ongoing problems and you see personal battles continuously brewing within your staff, it could be an issue that can be traced back to your management.
The ability to handle a wide range of different personalities, keep those individuals focused on the team goal, and diverted off internal conflicts is a skill that the best managers exhibit. People naturally run into conflicts now and again, but how these issues are addressed is an important part of running a hotel successfully.
Over my 36 years of service in the hotel industry, I have seen it all, and I enjoy watching those hotel executives we have placed in various positions take on these challenges effectively.
