Foundation of Critical Leadership

Critical leadership is the next stage of leadership skills in the restaurant manager's career development strategy.  The fundamentals of a good restaurant manager are personal. They have a narrow focus and are 'downward' focused. This means that they control things, situations, and people that are directly under your job focus.

The next level of career development relates to developing leadership skills which go down, and move up the management chain. These skills have a cause/effect…

Are You a Natural Leader?

Leadership is a learned skill. The myth of the natural leader halts too many restaurant manager careers and discourages many restaurant professionals from aggressively seeking better jobs in the hospitality industry.

The plugged in leader understands the ‘life force’ behind a strategy and can anticipate what may go wrong, problems they…

Restaurant Management Skills: The Law of Execution

One of the obstacles to career development is the ability to turn plans into executable strategies. Colleges and universities spend years teaching managers 'what' they need to know to run a restaurant. They have a poor track record at giving budding restaurant managers the skills needed to turn those ideas into 'real' plans that can be executed in the real world.

Coming up through the ranks gives a restaurant manager a solid understanding of the obstacles and problems which arise when…

TED TALKS VIDEO

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?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
