CORE COURSE – The course provides the essential tools for managing working groups and personal development. Businesses increasingly need developing a collective, widespread leadership, able to combine the need of taking decisions with the need to listen; the need of letting individuals' potential emerge with the need of mediating among different requirements. The modern world increasingly needs people who are more able to express themselves and more able to be together. Specifically, the aim of this course is to provide the basic tools to achieve these objectives.
This course examines successful people management policies, from hiring the right managers to retaining best employees. The choice among major organization alternatives will be followed by insight of experienced restaurant managers in order to learn ways to define the compensation scale, communicate performance expectations and measure employee performance.
