With change comes new experience and with those experiences you will find many lessons. Good, bad or indifferent there is always something to be learned. That is the beauty of life- you never know what the outcome will be but there will always be a hidden message. When you begin to realize that you can transcend emotional reaction to events.
So where did I leave off last time... oh yeah that's right! They had just fired my GM and literally the next day the new GM was there bright eyed and bushy tailed with a fire in his belly. Wearing a nice blue suit and shoes that looked entirely too clean (and expensive) to be worn in a restaurant I have to admit the man looks like he has himself put together. About 15 or so years younger, much faster and, shall I say, sharper than his predecessor I think this man will help turn the place around... eventually.
Many things are easier said than done and with a machine as large as a multi-million dollar restaurant there are certainly a lot of moving parts. Change and progress also takes time- and people. Without cooperation and communication none of this can be achieved. You cannot simply tear everything down and rebuild from scratch however. Effectively the only way to smoothly make progressive changes in this scenario is to do them gradually and methodically over time rather than all at once.
No system is without flaws though. When you introduce new ideas and techniques there will be a learning curve and some growing pains. We are going through that phase right now and it can be a it chaotic at times. When you go in to work each day and have a different curveball thrown at you every time it can be stressful. The dynamic is changing and constantly evolving with each passing week.
This is having the effect of pushing out some people yet drawing others further in as they have found a way to game the system. Almost like some are being rewarded whilst others are being punished. There will always be favoritism in restaurants though- that is without a doubt just like there will always be some sort of drama. That is to be expected so you need to learn how to just make the best of it and roll with the punches.
