As a hotel general manager, you serve as its top executive, responsible for strategy, structure, budgets, people and financial outcomes. One minute you may be acting as concierge, the next, presenting your quarterly budget to top management and the next, helping a guest find a lost wallet. You’re constantly juggling the needs of various groups:
- Key functional managers and staff – overseeing hiring and development programs, as well as listening, collaborating, motivating and giving personnel the tools they need to get the job done
- Executive managers – implementing strategies to grow the business, pursuing targeted goals, and making key investments in equipment, infrastructure and talent
- Guests – dealing with daily emergencies and customer requests, insuring the overall quality of the hotel’s offerings and tracking key customer activities
Finding a balance among these competing activities, people and priorities can put a strain on you and your resources.
