Service Excellence: Through the Eyes of a Server

Bryan K. Williams | November 4, 2019

By Dr. Bryan K. Williams Back to my roots. There’s something deeply moving and rejuvenating to go back to where it all started. My professional career began almost 30 years ago in a fine-dining French restaurant called “The Palm Terrace”. I started as a busboy, then worked my way up to various roles. However, the job that transformed me; the one that made me feel like I was flying...the one that fully consumed me, was as a restaurant server. Oh, I loved that job. In fact, I still view myself as a server today! Many of the articles, books, keynotes and workshops that I’ve created were inspired by my time as a server. I studied...

Leadership Lessons: Pull the Weeds

Bryan K. Williams | October 29, 2019

By Dr. Bryan K. Williams Do you know what annoys a gardener more than anything else? A weed. They hate weeds. As soon as a weed rears its head the gardener pulls it out! In my analogy, the "gardener" is the leader and the "weed" is not the problem employee... it is the undesirable behavior (blaming other depts, bad attitude, etc). If your goal is to have a thriving garden (team), here are some keys to note regarding weeds: *You never have to try to make weeds grow. *Weeds don't start big. They always start small. *It's always easier to pull weeds when they are small. *Weeds are a sign of neglect. Whenever you see weeds, it mean...

30-Second Video By Dr. Bryan K. Williams One of the most frequently asked questions I get is "How do I handle difficult conversations with my staff?"

The #1 Rule in Service Excellence: Keep the Customer

BW Leadership Academy | August 3, 2017

By Bryan Williams United Airlines is now a case study for how not to treat customers. Especially paying customers…who are about to receive the service they paid for…and are obviously unhappy about how they are being treated. There is so much to learn from this scenario. Horst Schulze, who is the former President and COO of the Ritz-Carlton (and one of my biggest influences) always said that rule #1 is to keep the customer. For any organization to be successful, they must become proficient at keeping customers (and not lose them). Keep them happy. Keep them engaged. Keep them so well that they eagerly look forward to return...

Recognizing Excellence on Your Team

Bryan K. Williams | April 12, 2017

Plaques. Pizza Parties. Parking Spaces. The list can go on and on. After all, who doesn't like to to be recognized and get prizes, right? There are even popular books that give hundreds of ways to recognize your employees. In the quest to provide employee recognition, companies often assume that more incentives will lead to higher employee morale. Take it, like it & be happy about it. In many companies, if you win "employee of the month", the award is a plaque. This plaque may even be coated in gold with your name etched in elegant writing and bedazzled with jewels! Well, what if you don't like plaques? You get th...
