One of the most frustrating aspects of working in any corporation is being stepped over for a promotion. Another example would be the manager who solves problems, reduces turn over, increases revenue, brings the restaurant out of the dark ages, and then is fired despite their efforts.

1. A Poor Behavior…

How The Interviewer Tests Your Behavior and Personality

This post was originally written by FohBoh member Robert Krzak. You can visit his profile here.

Many Job Seekers are surprised to find that a job interview is similar to being profiled. The interviewer may be less interested in your experience, and more interested in your behavior, and what your personality type is. They may overlook areas where your education and experience are lacking.

Skills and Abilities Questions Interviewers ask Restaurant Managers

This post was originally written by FohBoh member Robert Krzak. You can visit his profile here.

There is more to these questions than just wanting to know if a Candidate is skilled enough to hold a job at a particular restaurant. Think of a job interview as if it were a game of chess. Each move determines the next set of questions. The outcome depends on whether the interviewer puts the Candidate in check, or…

Interviewing Secrets: Strong vs. Weak Management Candidates

This post was originally written by FohBoh member Robert Krzak. You can visit his profile here.

Weak candidates may have difficulty articulating their experiences and what they learned. Weaker candidates are satisfied with their ability to make it through the day without inciting chaos.

The Smack Of Firm Leadership (or not)

OK.  I’ll ask you to bear with me a bit on this one, as I’m starting well out in left field.  (Or, to really milk the analogy, somewhere behind the first violins.)

Who Was Your Yoda?

Recently I sat in my therapist’s office all ready to bark at the moon and lay blame for all my issues on my mother, the kid that aimed at me in dodge ball and possibly Nixon. But the session turned into a warm and fuzzy remembrance of the man who turned my life around.

 

In high school we had a…

Not-so-Random Thoughts From The 2012 RLC ...

Each spring, just as spring training is wrapping up, Scottsdale is the scene of the Restaurant Leadership Conference.  It’s neither the largest, nor by most measures the most frenetic of the key restaurant conferences; the first title must go to Chicago’s NRA extravaganza, and arguably the second goes to the well-run, but adrenaline-filled, RFDC in Las Vegas (the adrenaline perhaps unavoidably due to the locale as well…

Success Is In the Facts, Not the Feelings

This year, listen for how often you hear the word “feeling.”  Listen for how often you hear yourself or your colleagues say “I have a feeling…”

A feeling this manager is the right fit.  A feeling the opening will be a big hit.  A feeling this banquet will run without a hitch.  A feeling we’re on the wrong track.  A feeling (insert the most important objectives of your business here)…

The best leaders work in the truth, and the facts are infinitely closer to the truth than…

HELP! Leadership, Mentoring & The Beatles

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…
