Cars receive tune-up all the time, but are you doing the same with your restaurant?
Is your restaurant and your team being adjusted from time to time? Or do you or them keep going until the wheels fall off, lol!!!
Even if most people don’t like to be compared to cars, this metaphor illustrates very well what a lot of restaurant owners and their teams avoid, which is – readjusting themselves.
Many habits are difficult to break. Such as:
- Downplaying others’ positions and roles within the restaurant.
- Blaming the kitchen for everything that’s going wrong.
- Assuming good tips going to be given no matter what.
- Constantly yelling at others thinking it’s going to make them work faster.
- Assuming your team are always understanding what you’re telling them
As the leader of your restaurant, not adjusting yourself or re-questioning your (and your team’s) actions and reactions can cause you and your team to:
- Become hypersensitive
- Deliberately hurt yourself and others
- Make the current and future vision of the restaurant small
- See everything negative
However, when you give yourself and your team tune-ups, everyone in your restaurant start:
* looking at the restaurant differently
* believing that things just don’t happen. There is a ripple effect of many things before.
* performing at a higher level
* understanding that some of those habits got to go
Tuning up is not as complex as it may seem.
But if you don’t check yourself or your restaurant, you’ll end up burning the engine.
Don’t let that happen!
