Hotel team leaders and Hotel Managers are responsible for Hotel Team Leadership and should simply not be recruited if they do not have the skills to achieve the results that are required from their groups of people … their Hotel Teams (carry on reading or watch the video).
Managing and getting the best results from Hotel Teams is important and can be achieved if Hotel Team Leaders or Hotel Managers take their responsibility to motivate them seriously.
Ideas to Deliver Better Hotel Team Performance
Once any Hotel team is formed, gather them for a meeting and explain to them the need for forming the Team. Ensure that the individual members feel that they are important. In order to Manage your Team and bring out the best results, it is important that you understand the strengths of each employee.
Explain to the Team the main objectives of the Hotel and their Department and the importance of realising these goals. The Team Leaders should make sure that the Team members have clarity and complete understanding in whatever they do.
A Team which works together and are more focused will surely be more likely to succeed rather than ones which are doing their own things. Such a Team alignment can easily be achieved. The way the Hotel Team Leader does everything is important.
The Team members who do not perform at a high level should always be encouraged more. Boost their motivation by highlighting the special characteristics they possess for you having selected them for the team.
The Leader of the Team should use the Team’s diverse thinking and creativeness. It is important for the Team Leader to assign goals and targets for the Team members, even if in very small quantities. Once they have accomplished their assigned goals, more tasks can be assigned to them.
A critically important aspect of Managing your Hotel Team and delivering outstanding results is constant and transparent communication. Some Teams will work better with face to face communications, others might prefer to primarily communicate electronically.
Help your Hotel Team pass through all of their difficult times and help them achieve their personal and Team objectives. It is important for Team Leaders not to be lazy as this quality will impact upon the whole Team. More-over the morale of the Team will be significantly impacted when their Team Leaders are not working hard themselves.
Acknowledge the input of every Team member. It would be good for the Team Leader to dedicate some time each week to acknowledge hard work.
Have meeting sessions when necessary; but never waste people’s time and effort.
Each Team member must be determined and focused towards achieving their targets.
Thank Employees to reward them if they deserve it. Performance and development plans should be created for everybody.
Treat Team members as individuals and in the right manner, this simple behaviour can boost their performance. All of your Hotel Team members should be eager to learn. Do not allow Team Leaders’ behaviour to bring fear into the work-place.
It is never easy to achieve the best out of a Hotel Team with so many different personalities and whilst often under significant work-shift pressures. However, Team Leaders or Hotel Managers are responsible for this and should simply not be recruited if they do not have the skills to achieve this result for their Hotel Team.
