YOU WANT A MOTIVATED, INSPIRED AND ENGAGED TEAM OF INDIVIDUALS COMMITTED TO DELIVERING
EXCELLENT GUEST EXPERIENCES 100% OF THE TIME.

The greatest investment is in the design look and feel of your property. The weakest link is often the people you employ to deliver the entire guest experience. The role of leaders at all levels of a business is to create the right working environment to challenge all of your staff to be the best at whatever they do in service of the vision you have for your business.

I help you, the leader, manager or owner to motivate, inspire and engage all of your staff in delivering exceptional guest experiences 100% of the time. I ensure that all of your team leaders know how to achieve this in their area of responsibility.

The Epidemic ! It’s not going away

Have you ever had that feeling that no matter what you do nothing STAYS DONE?

Do you ever wish you could fix those recurring problems once and for all?

My first proper job was a systems support specialist for Burroughs Computers aged 23. All I did, every day, was support people by telephone, solving their IT problems on our really cool workstations. No matter how many problems I solved, the next day there were just as many.

It was like groundhog day. Every day. “I think I’ve fixed this problem before.”

It’s one thing to do some lowest-job-on-the-totem-pole job when you’re 23.

It’s another thing entirely when you’re 46, the leader of the business or a team.

People in the hospitality business often talk about “bright shiny objects”, the latest technology that will solve everything. We are susceptible to them. And that’s because we are on the look out for quick fixes!

And people still fall for them, but they rarely work

If you feel like no matter how hard you try, you’re unable to stop circling right back around to where you were last year…. if lasting relief is elusive no matter what you do… if you’re angry because you can’t seize a permanent solution; if you feel stymied because you’re treading water…

I have a solution.

There are essential elements in every business that, if not present, put your business at risk. However all of us tend to put off asking ourselves the difficult questions that we need to ask. Instead we focus on trying to solve the same problems over and over again. It’s frustrating.

So click here and download the 6 Essential Profit Boosters. For each Booster ask yourself three questions.

• What is working in this area? – Do more of this
• What is not working in this area? – Stop, or change how you are doing this
• What’s missing in this area? – Find out out to start doing this?

Download 6 Essential Profit Boosters and start asking the difficult questions of yourself today!

If you want a different result than the one you keep getting then you have to be prepared to do something that you have not done before.

If Proof Were Needed!

Do you ever worry that your staff could destroy your reputation? Do you believe that your staff can make the difference between the success or failure of your business?

Well this might help you decide what action you can take to ensure that all of your staff are focussed on the success of your business.

In the space of two and a half hours I experienced the extremes of service

Three hotels, three individuals and three completely different outcomes. I very rarely mention hotels or restaurants unless they have delivered outstanding service, and today I am going to break that rule so if you are interested you can check out the properties mentioned yourself. TripAdvisor will probably suffice.

The story starts at the end of a busy day of meetings in the north. We had booked at the Oakwood Hall Hotel. It seemed reasonably priced and had some fair trip advisor feedback and also some less complimentary ones.

As many people I take a view and think that somewhere between the worst and the best will lie the truth! Not always so!!!!

This is a very pretty property from outside, and although the car park only had three cars in it, I was hopeful.

Entering reception hope quickly faded to dread. No receptionist at 7pm, just a bell on the desk. After ringing the bell, seven minutes later, a man in a dirty stained white shirt, looking somewhat harassed arrived to ask “can I help?”

Alarm bells ringing in my head I told him we had a reservation and he confirmed this and started opening an envelope that had our key inside. I asked to see the room. He handed me the key. I gingerly opened room 19 and after a few seconds had decided not to stay.

Handing the key back all I received was a grunt as he was on the phone to someone whilst studying something on the wall.

Experience terrible. Desire to return, non existent. Will I tell people about my experience? Yes! Will it improve the reputation of the hotel, I doubt it, unless as one trip advisor put it “ if you want to stay in a hotel which treats you as a total inconvenience, this is the hotel for you”

So we left and tried the Premier Inn at Bingley. It was getting late and we wanted a clean bedroom! Unfortunately the lodge was full. But that did not disrupt the excellent welcome you get from many Premier Inns. Lee, the duty reception manager, was an absolute star! Now remember we are not staying there. We were just passing through!

He offered to call the hotels we identified to help us find a room for the night. The one we found was the Wheatley Arms in Ilkley. Would I recommend the Premier Inn at Bingley, Yes, if I get that level of service, welcome and courtesy and I was not a guest, what would it be like to be a guest? Lee could not accommodate us and he found us the perfect solution!

So finally we arrive at the Wheatley Arms. Welcomed with a smile, given our key, we go to our room and WOW. It is the Bridal suite. Now my fiancé and I are not getting married until December so a bit early, but oh so nice. It was their last room so we got it for a steal, and we had a fantastic dinner too. We left definitely wanting to return, and who knows, maybe after the wedding.

Three hotels, three individuals, three different outcomes.  I doubt the salaries of the staff involved were all that different. And yet their attitude, to the guest, to their work and to their business was so different.

If you were worried about your staff destroying your reputation, then there is a simple answer. Either motivate, inspire and engage your staff to deliver the service levels you desire, or hire someone who can help you achieve that.

If you know that your staff can make the difference between the success or failure of your business, then invest in them, to inspire motivate and engage them, to deliver service standards consistent with your brand.

The best investment you can make is in your staff. It delivers the fastest return on investment. It is also the best way to build a competitive advantage that cannot be copied or stolen.

If you are struggling to get the best return from your staff then the simplest and most cost effective step you can take is to meet with me online. In 45 minutes I will help you identify at least three steps you can take to improve your profitability through improving the performance of your staff.

My life is, at times, beautifully simple. Actually, most of the time.

When it is not simple, when I am faced with difficult challenges, I have to learn new lessons. It is those lessons that I have had to learn that enable me to be an effective coach, consultant and mentor.

This is not only true of coaches, consultants and mentors. It is true for everyone.

And we teach best when we have had to really work to learn something… and it was probably uncomfortable whilst we learnt it!

Probably the hardest lesson I most needed to learn has been to trust myself, to trust my instincts, to trust my gut.

It was a hard lesson primarily because I was not aware that I wasn’t trusting my gut!

Let me explain as I know time is short – As my great friend and colleague Helena Holrick always says, “Clarity and Certainty bring Opportunity and Choice”. But when you are uncertain, when you are unsure then it is hard to trust yourself.

As a business owner or leader at any level in business, uncertainty and being unsure eat away at your confidence, and you may not be aware that you are not being confident. Or you may not want to let on that you are not confident!

However, those around you, the people who rely on your “Certainty and Clarity” to be able to contribute to you and your business, do notice, and it impacts their performance.

The greatest contribution I can make to a business owner or manager is to help them regain their purpose, their vision and their values so that they can be the “Certainty and Clarity” their staff need to perform at their best.

If your gut is telling you that you are facing some tough challenges, listen to it. Trust your gut. Learning the lessons to address these challenges is likely to be the best action you can take!

Click here and complete the form and I will jump on a call with you this month of August. Let’s see if we can put some clarity and certainty back into your world by helping you address those challenges head on.

I hope you are having a Fabulous August

Adrian
