Have you ever given thought to the question of whether you get what you need from your working life?
When the coachee I worked with this week brought it up, it struck me that in Hospitality we hardly ever consider this.
More often than not, we tend to be givers by nature. Therefore, we rarely think about our own needs.
More often than not, we are conditioned to believe that if we do not agree with the way things are, then the fault lies with us.
In other words, we can never need our work to give us anything beyond helping us survive.
Across the board, we accept things as they are.
Because even the operators running businesses in this industry have to get comfortable with that perpetual survival mode.
Probably no one is really thriving in Hospitality.
Does that have to be the norm for all of us?
Not if we choose differently.
I do not mean that you will always be able to live your life or run your restaurant by design.
But with every choice or decision you make, at least you can speak up honestly about what you need.
Thus expanding the possibility of those needs being met.
Only this November, I am offering one-off coaching sessions to all of you who might be at a similar crossroads in your working life: whether you lead a team or run a food business.
You will be surprised by the depth you can explore in a single hour of coaching.
There is no better time to do it than now, as we bring this year to a close.
I invite you to take that first step and book your coaching session.
