11 Strategies for Stronger Restaurant Team Communication

A successful restaurant is based on the strength of your entire team. Using effective communication strategies will help everyone get on the same page and deliver value to your customers.

In an article from Nation’s Restaurant News, author Jim Sullivan writes, “since a good deal of a restaurant leader’s time is spent in meetings with team members (and vendors), perhaps the best place way to improve communication and accountability is by learning how to plan and execute more effective employee meetings”.

  • Less monologue, more dialogue

Sullivan continues, “Meetings are like elevators. They can lift you up or bring you down.

What strategies can you use from Sullivan’s list in your next meeting?
