One Manager Exercise

Do you run your place, your hotel, your store, your company with one manager? If not, could you? If you don't think so, list all the reasons why and start chipping away at those obstacles...immediately. Some that come to mind...

  • Reporting
  • Legal
  • Financial- salaried people reduce hourly rate of pay (they work tons of hours)
  • Skills
  • Oversight- Measuring the performance of others
  • Scheduling
  • Management
  • Guest Satisfaction

You may never get to the one manager state, but you will improve your organization if you scrutinize your status quo...guaranteed.

Of course, the other way to look at your place with only managers (or, those with the skills to fit into that category as you currently have it defined). Who could be promoted today, tomorrow, in a week or month?
