Have you ever thought whether you are you an Organized Hotel Worker, Supervisor or Manager? (carry on reading or watch the video)
But, what are some of the skills of a truly organized person? What might make you Professionally Organized within your Hotel?
Some people are born lucky and just appear to be organized, in every shift, in everything they do around the Hotel. Others less so.
Organized Hotel Workers, Supervisors and Managers normally just follow these simple ideas:
Firstly, Goal Setting – THINK before you act. Think about what you are going to do, how you will accomplish it and when you are going to do it.
By Frequently Making a List – You should have lists that help you keep track of everything that you plan on doing for every shift or job you are going to complete (mapping out how you will do it?).
By Keeping an up to date Diary – whether this is hand-written or digital – keep it up to date and use colour. I use a week to view so that I can see what is happening every hour for the next 7 days.
Often Keeping a Wall Planner or Calendar – In a prominent place in your home or office so you don’t forget important appointments and meetings. Without your plans, a goal is only a wish.
Always Picking Priority Jobs – What-ever job you hold and which-ever department you work in the most important jobs get tackled first – this helps to relieve the stress.
By Getting Physically Organized … not just a tidy desk, but also the layout of rooms, floors, and whole buildings. And it goes well beyond maintaining a neat appearance. A poorly Organized space leads to physical discomfort and wasted time. The space people work in has a lot to do with how well they work.
By Getting Rid of the Rubbish – This can be junk lying around the hotel or office, too many things listed on your schedule or too many things to remember – it will all fill up your brain.
By Regularly Taking your Breaks – Organized people take time off and enjoy themselves. I turn my computer off at the same point in the middle of the afternoon every-day and put my mobile phone away at the same time late afternoon every-day.
Make life Simple – Get rid of all of the excess things that control your life and go back to the simple part of life. Too many meetings; get rid of some. Too much work; look for faster and easier ways of getting the job done.
Create a Routine that becomes a Habit – Most of us could have daily routines. If you are organized, a routine is nothing more than a guide and can be changed when need be.
Employees with Good Organizational Skills are able to keep themselves calm and prepared with systematic planning and scheduling.
Finally, think about this now; if you could only accomplish five things a day, what would they be? Now you are Organized. Simple!
