“Thank God It’s Monday” is to help companies thrive!
This week’s focus: leadership
I caught an interesting television episode of “Kitchen Nightmares” this week featuring Chef Ramsey, the Simon Cowell of the restaurant business. He was brought in to save a failing restaurant.
The owner made the mistake of thinking that the restaurant she had purchased 5 years earlier was a turn-key business that would require no additional thought, innovation, training, systems, quality control, etc. She demonstrated no passion for “making the business work”—she merely expected it to work as it had for the seventeen years prior to her acquiring it.
Merely showing up and going through the motions won’t make any business thrive.
Thought for the week:
