Scott Greenberg on inspiring hourly workers

How do you motivate an employee that doesn’t want to work for you? For so many of our line level employees, a restaurant job is a pitstop on the way to their true destination and, as a result, most owners struggle with motivating and leading them. But it doesn’t have to be that way according to Scott Greenberg. Scott is a motivational speaker that turns phrases like culture and values into actionable information. We sit down today to discuss the tactics, tools, and strategies he’s perfected to turn underperformers into superstars.

Justin Kingsley Hall on chef life after restaurants

I met Justin Kingsley Hall in Whitefish, Montana of all places. We were both consulting on a gorgeous restaurant project there. He oversaw the culinary program and I was brought in to refine and optimize the front of house. A friendship evolved and I wanted to have him on the show to discuss the lessons he’s learned after decades of building out his own restaurants and fixing the restaurants of others. This is a glimpse into the life of a chef not bound to a restaurant.
