Polishing the Stagecoach: Don't Let Trainers Fall Behind YourTrainees

Posted on August 7, 2011 at 7:56am 1 Comment

Copyright 2011 by Jim Sullivan

I recently had lunch with Tim Kirkland, the best-selling author of The Renegade Server (2009, Indian Creek Press, $19.95). If you haven’t read the book—a 21st Century treatise on how to motivate, inspire and direct iPod Generation waitstaff to better serve and sell—I highly recommend it.

Our conversation centered not on servers, but on the current state of—and frustrating lack of progress in—foodservice training. We…

Jim, welcome to the site. I have always been a huge fan of your stuff and have used it over and over again in teaching and coaching my team. We just completed a total review of your MUM book complete with each MUM taking a chapter and presenting to our group what they learned from their section. Now we dig into the details.

It is awesome to finally see some training for these unsung heroes of the industry!

Thanks again!
Andy

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
