Middle management in this biz is only good during the busy times, When you slow down They are generally not needed. When there are layoffs they are the first to go.[ Not that I condone this, But that is what typically happens.]:chef:
"Live life like there's no tomorrow"
this motto brings it all home.
The mid to upper houses:
The trend here is to push the spocks hard. Then get rid of the high salary chefs and F&Bs and move the spocks into their positions at half the price.
The chefs and sous don't see it coming, so it really sets the spock up for mediocrety. I currently have three properties like this. The ex spocks are running around out of controll. These moves totally undermine spocks authority. The end result is' the customer suffers'
I truly hope this is just a local trend due to the economy.
I just pray somebody beams me up to retirement land in a couple of years
Funny. My Exec Chef keeps reminding me that he hired me to be his replacement when he leaves (he's planning a transfer to the US).
Trouble is, I don't buy it for a second. It's just his way of sitting on his laurels, and getting me to do everything and take the blame for all that goes wrong ("This is good for you" bla bla bla)
My company has a philosophy: If you want to move ahead, always train your replacement. I've read that training a replacement instead of doing everything (vs. delegation) out of fear of being replaced is on the whole a more successful strategy. I'm still looking for evidence of this....

Whats the difference between a chef and a cook?

"If a chef is not producing profit at the end of the year, it is time to start looking for a new job."
At some point, some upper Management, CEO and/or Owner will see that no profit is coming out of the kitchen and they will start asking if this is the right chef for that position!
Four food groups?
Garlic, chocolate,caffeine and "other"
