White On Rice Couple

Good luck on your personal transition. From your awareness and demeanor that comes through in your writing, you will undoubtedly fill the GM void wonderfully, especially now that you can step back out of the kitchen a bit. After several years of figuring out my own restaurant managing ways, doing as you have, learning from my predecessors and creating my own, I felt I had a good system, but didn't understand why it worked so well. After reading "First, Break All the Rules: What the World's Greatest Managers Do Differently" I understand more. Plus it's helped me develop even more as a GM to understand ways to get the best out of the staff and use people's strengths. Good luck. I'm going to have to check out the books you've been reading, as well.


That's great. I think that managing to peel yourself out of the "labor" part of any business is probably the goal of everyone with a business.

@White on Rice: I listened to the ebook of "break all the rules" and it made me feel a lot better about several things I had already been doing that seemed to be against conventional "wisdom."

Good luck to you all..
