RFMA 2016 Session Preview: Strengthening Your Passion for Restaurant Facility Management

It is common for successful personnel in Restaurant Facility Management to have been in their positions for 5-15+ years.It’s natural for any seasoned leader to discover they’ve been leading on “auto-pilot” and “going through the motions” based on past experience. This career longevity, combined with the everyday challenges Restaurant Facility Management faces, has led to a decrease in emotional energy.A common phrase amongst management today is “I’m just tired.” Participants will leave this 1-3 hour program with increased energy, restored passion for Restaurant Facility Management and confidence to address the challenges they face with ease. Join Richard Flint at his session on Monday, March 14th at 3:30pm.
