Over my 35 years serving the hospitality industry I’ve come to recognize how important it is to take careful note of the ideas brought to you by the top achievers on your management team. They’re constantly engaged in their area and can often have insights and fresh ideas to increase reservations and profits.
Your hotel executives and managers are your most valuable resource. Listening to their input and being genuinely interested in their ideas can be a surprisingly effective way to keep the entire staff motivated and retain great talent.
My team of skilled hotel recruiters seeks out hotel executives that are skilled communicators who know how to take creative steps in motivating staff and are focused on the client’s goals and objectives for the property.
Having served in the hospitality industry myself as an executive, I know the importance of developing a spirit of mutual cooperation in the hotel, and how an executive can keep the company’s goals and vision alive for every employee. Taking the time to meet with your hotel managers and asking them to bring their ideas to the table for discussion can go a long way to keeping your hotel successful.
Any high-quality hotel executive should have not only exceptional management skills, but also know how to work with a wide range of management personalities. And I believe they should be concerned with finding innovative strategies to establish a motivated and winning team.
