(Connect) Create a Comfortable and Pleasant Environment

The atmosphere in the restaurant and lounge should be enjoyable for all involved. You need to be approachable and have clear communication with everyone on the TEN team. When your team is open, friendly, and happy, it will show through their interactions with guests and job performance.

(Empathize) Stay Calm

Mistakes and accidents are bound to happen in every workplace, especially in a restaurant. Things are dropped, orders are incorrect, and both employees and guests are upset. Remain calm and collected. Empathize with your team members when they make mistakes or are frustrated with a situation. You need to think quickly, accept criticism, and maintain a calm demeanor. It can be frustrating to deal with disgruntled guests. If we empathize with their frustrations, it helps us respond well and maintain the reputation and order of our restaurant.

(Respect) Be Professional and Appropriate

Set the expectation for your employees to be respectful of each other, equipment, and leadership. Maintain a professional demeanor and always use appropriate language. While you do want to be friendly with both guests and employees, there are certain lines that should not be crossed. Manager -subordinate relationships should be friendly but focused primarily on work and job performance.
