The New Restaurant Manager: How to get ahead, avoid rookie mistakes, and still have a life
John T. Self, PhD (see front cover details)
John Self has 16 years restaurant management experience in several chains ranging from manager trainee to vice president of operations. After his restaurant career, he earned a PhD and has been teaching hospitality management at the university level. He was a Fulbright Scholar at Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki, Finland teaching hospitality management.
Why not learn from the mistakes of others? This book guides rookie restaurant managers through situations and traps that they will experience that can hurt their promotion from manager trainee to general manager. It will help prevent bad career decisions, guides the new manager through situations and traps that could slow down or hurt their career, and helps them work smarter, not harder. It's written in a casual, down to earth voice that is like having coffee with their mentor.
Potential restaurant managers, assistant restaurant managers, manager trainees, and college seniors about to graduate in hospitality management. Probably between ages 18 - 35.
