June 2015
Director of Operations:
Plan on having email on your phone. You will need to know everything that goes on and how to respond when it does not go as planned. You may not want to move into this position if you have small children as you will be busy on nights and weekends. Excel by mastering communication skills and developing checklists which will allow you to manage the staff you are responsible for on a non-emotional level. Yes or no? Done or not?

"Hospitality Management - Diverse and Exciting."
Director of Operations:
Being a Director of Operations in the hospitality industry means that everyday will bring a different set of tasks and challenges. This will be both a benefit, in that the job is challenging and exciting on an on-going basis, and a drawback, as it is difficult to plan and predict what each day will bring. This type of environment will be stressful at times, and will require a calm and collected approach, someone who can look a the big picture and encourage creative thinking from their team. You will have the opportunity to mentor and work with a diverse team over a variety of disciplines, and this is very rewarding.
