A Bakerís Dozen of Reality Checks in Hospitality- Myth or Fact?
I have created a series of columns on various topics over the past ten years that include 13, or a Baker's Dozen, points on a range of topics. During the past 25 years in workshops, seminars and presentations, I have been collecting an assortment of "myths" that many of us have held as self-evident truths. I have shared one or two of these in earlier blogs or columns, but this list is much more comprehensive.
The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie -- deliberate, contrived and dishonest-
Judge for yourself the depth of these following items, and decide for yourself if you agree with my assessment whether they are "myths or facts":
Our myths and belief in them shape our understanding of our personal and business lives. They describe for us "the way things are."
What happens when our myths lose credibility, or become unreliable? Our response is likely to be frustration and a sense of futility as we try to adjust to what really is, not what we thought it might have been. Solutions in business and in our personal lives depend on our follow up actions. If we take hold of the situation and plan on actions to correct and improve the current trend, we can overcome almost any human roadblock.
Add your own myths to the list...........
