While out, talk to guests and to staff to ensure all is going as it should, actively listening for where you can help / improve the experience. You should know your team and they should know you.
Be a Finance Guru — set the standards, policies and procedures and then keep a pulse on operational and financial performance. Actively manage the budget process. Be proactive vs. simply reactive to ensure you areas are accurately forecasting for optimal staff and supply levels and at the same time maximizing profit, all while delivering an exceptional guest experience.
Be a Visionary and an Innovator –let your passion for the industry and your vision inspire your staff to build a great team of individuals driven to do their best, executing successful and innovative strategies which drive profit to the bottom line.
