Essential Leadership Skills — Remake Your Company’s Culture and Gain a Reputation for Excellence

With Jim Laube

Why are some restaurants highly successful year after year while so many others, in the same market and serving essentially the same type of food, constantly struggle and even fail? We believe it boils down to leadership. In this highly relevant and practical workshop, restaurant industry veteran Jim Laube will show you how several restaurant organizations have dramatically improved results by creating and sustaining a culture of accountability, hospitality and excellence. He’ll examine some of the common foundational leadership principles and practices followed by these operators and provide practical ways for you to implement and model them in your restaurant and organization.
