Do I Have the Talent to be a Restaurant Manager?

Each of us is multifaceted. Our desires are molded by beliefs. Unfortunately, many of our beliefs are ‘second hand.’ We were told that success requires a certain income, level of recognition, lifestyle so we strive to reach for that definition of success without asking if this will make us happy.


It is impossible to understand what we need until we identify the beliefs that are truly ours, and what we believe because parents, society, media, or peers have imposed on us.  The…

What Does a Successful Restaurant Manager Look Like?

Managing a restaurant or general manger career is a process. It is a self driven quest. Each individual is in control of where they want to go, how they will get there, and how long it will take, whether they take responsibility for their careers – or not. There is a saying in career development, “You can prepare to be a restaurant management and may never become one. But it is certain that if you don’t prepare, you never will be one.”

All job seekers hope to land a position where the…

Many of today’s top performers are continually running their own Reputation Management Campaigns using easy to access tools, such as social networking and web profiles.

Job Interview Questions Designed to Cause You to Lose the Job

Not all job interview questions are designed to reveal who you are to the HR professional. Many job seekers ramble off answers, trying to sell themselves, and totally miss the interview questions that are designed to trip up and reveal whether you are prepared to run a restaurant, successfully.


Some of these questions are very benign. They may be as simple as ‘why did you leave your last job,’ or ‘what do you want to get out of your next job.’ The answers may appear straight…

Using Interview Questions to Land a Restaurant Management Job

There are two ways to look at interview questions. The first is to feel threatened. Interview questions are intrusive, and can be confrontational. It is easy to feel defensive when asked for questions that are designed to make you falter and feel stressed.


Many people who work with career coaches learn to turn the tables and view the interview questions as an opportunity.  Many performance coaches teach their clients to walk into an interview as the dominant person. Remember…

Communication – A Manager’s Most Effective Tool

As a career coach I am often asked how a person can pass the interview section. I’ve talked to several professionals who seem trapped in the middle management career stage. No matter what they do, they cannot break through the ceiling. This rarely has anything to do with their charisma, talent, education, or management skills. It has everything to do with their communication style.

One of the most important management skills is communication. A manager who is skilled in the six styles…

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.
