In an age abundant of social media love, side hustle glorification, and demanding 9-5’s where do you find your piece of happiness? When can you flip your switch for a mindful reset?
Let’s get one thing straight, stress does not control you. We all have let it affect us one way or another and often times there is a struggle to find that work/life balance. Once stress has the upper hand, every day can be an uphill battle. We lose sleep, we can’t focus or find time for interests outside of the workplace, our relationships slip, and even our immune systems can start to weaken.
I get it! Our lives are hectic and it’s hard to find that balance. Having a plan to deal with stress ahead of time helps manage how I react to stressors. I do my best to model the behaviors that I expect my team to exhibit. My go-to formula when managing stress is simple:
Imagine starting at a job where you quickly realize that there is no clear on-boarding or training plan and you must "figure it out" on your own. Or, you want to further develop and grow your career; however, there's no clear career path nor opportunity for growth. Sound familiar?
For those in the Hospitality Industry, and especially human resources, this is a reality they handle on a daily basis. The hospitality industry must appeal to top talent through training, leadership, and modern tools in order to grapple with a staggering 73.8% employee turnover rate. There exists a gap between what organizations and recruiters are seeking, and what prospects seek and expect from employers that contribute to high turnover. Human Resources professionals must achieve a careful balance of finding and attracting the right candidate with structure and leadership in order to mitigate turnover costs.
So many times, we allow our day to get away from us. We start our day fresh and energized and at the end of the day wonder what we accomplished.
There are ways to keep yourself on track. These productivity tips will help keep you in control of your day and accomplish what you want and need to do.
As sales managers, it is financially beneficial to maximize our daytime productivity to achieve our greatest bonus potential, and that means avoiding interruptions.
As important as it is to build rapport with your coworkers, we must also protect our peak sales time. Ask those who stop by if the conversation can resume after peak selling times. Very often, we can deflect the interruption with a cordial,
“You know, I’m really busy right now. I have so many high-priority items on my plate that will affect my numbers today. Can we get together at 5:30?”
When one of your sales peers or someone from another department says, “Hey, can you help me with this,” our inclination is to say yes. Although being a team player is an important value, we want to ensure we are not missing out on potential revenue. So ask your coworker if you can assist them after you close your business for the day. It may take a few times, but your coworkers will start to understand that you are focused on bringing in revenue which will ultimately benefit the entire company.
Remaining focused on maximizing your peak sales time will result in higher sales and revenue for you and your coworkers. If you need to find a quiet spot, see if you can utilize an out of order guest room to make your sales calls. This will allow you to remain on task without getting distracted by competing demands.
Managing your peak sales time is a skill that will result in peak revenue.
