A lesson you learn in our business is how to get tired. This condition is inevitable if you’re in the game long enough and as you climb the management ladder. If you don’t learn how to do it, bad things happen, usually to guests and colleagues. Work 10, 20 or even 30 days straight and see what happens. And, as you get older, it gets worse. I know this isn’t news for many of you. But, to those that are either new, or about to get in, be careful…and mindful.
As leaders, getting tired is expected. But, so is great service. Unfortunately, they don’t coexist very well. If you want to take care of your staff, be sure they get enough time off to recharge their smiles, bodies and creative minds.
Have a great week!
