More than 50% of your managers are unsatisfied and looking for a better opportunity.
The overall US economy may be lagging, but your industry has been hiring new staff at a time when the average manager is unsatisfied and looking for a change. The paradigm shift to a “candidate’s market” is most certainly underway. If you want to win the war for…Continue

I remember the first POS terminal that I ever saw and used was way back in 1977. It was a monster and weighed a ton! I have no idea what this thing cost or who made it. It was all metal and brown. It didn't have a screen but it did have a keypad for entering data It was not exactly an elegant design, so I know Steve Jobs wasn't consulted. I learned about PLU (Price Look Up) codes, and remember the thing churning like it was thinking, or trying to.…Continue
A few months back I had the privilege of becoming online friends with Dave Reynolds and RickieTyler, two of the radio DJ’s at 997 FM in Campbell River, British Columbia. We are all part of the #usguys Twitter chat gang and nearly every morning Dave is kind enough to play me a request for some abstract song I torture…Continue

What is “HELP”? Well, besides it being the blood curdling yell to summon someone who just happens to have a great big “S” under their dress shirt, it’s one of the words all leaders should have in their top 10 terminology list.
In this case it has two meanings: the classic definition of aiding someone who…Continue
I believe that everyone should work as a waiter at one point in their life.
Not because the money is pretty darn good or because you get one shift drink that can turn into two or three if you are good chums with the bartender. Rather, they should become a waiter to learn the true value of great customer service and its rewards.
It worked for me and I can say, with no…Continue
So October 22nd was the last time that I blogged here at FohBoh and I know the millions of you that have read this have been dieing with anticipation as to what I have been doing. Actually my wife Kelly is really the only one that reads anything I write but it made me feel good to write that sentence. Those of you that know me know that I am a little bit of a talker (ok a lot of a bit) and not so much a writer. I can write but it takes a long time because I write the way I talk and that is…Continue

I’m a big fan of Saul Good. I love my friends Rob and Diane Perez who own and run the two locations in Lexington. I’d be a liar if I told you I wasn’t a bit biased. However you are just going to have to believe me when I tell you if Saul Good was a lousy restaurant I wouldn’t be a fan regardless of my relationship with Rob and Diane.
The food and service are both “out of this world” at Saul Good. I can guarantee you will enjoy your experience at either one of their locations.…Continue

It’s true… The day of the casual consumer has come and gone. The 21st century consumer is anything but casual. In other words today’s consumer is much more sophisticated than in the past. The word discriminating comes mind. Allow me to explain……Continue

I’m 19 days into my personal challenge. (Check out #TR30days on Twitter) For those of you who don’t know this was peer pressure prompted by my significant other Susan and our best friend and Talent Revolution CEO, Amanda Hite. It’s pretty simple – you create a bucket list for 30 days of your life and you…Continue

So much has been written about the value of being present. (Read The Power of Now – Eckhart Tolle) That seems like such a simple concept. Just focus on the moment and life will get better. I don’t know about you but for me this could be one of my toughest challenges. For me it’s certainly a work in process.
I think it starts with slowing down. For some of us that’s a little counter-intuitive. Few would argue that the world is speeding up. Business is changing at warp speed.…
