October 22, 2012


We had a case-study today, where we were proposed to become one of the senior managers or a general manager of a hotel and in the morning briefing cover all probles that need to be solved. So, having my privious degree in HR management I was preing to get the role of Personel and Training Manager because I know responsibilities and the tipical problems that HR manager may face....So imagine my disapointment when I got the role of the General Manager!!! General Manager? Seriosly? Check my post about team work where I was writing that I am not leader but a good coordinator.

But suprizenly, I got very usefull experience from this case-study. I discovered few key points in the succesful briefing. So there are some conclusions:

  • Leasten. I reallized that by leastening others and finding solutions to their problem I actually automatically tackle my own problems.
  • Involve others. I noticed that one of my team members was not involved in the discustion. But I couldn't spent time on him to motivate and encourage, consiquantly we did not use his ideas during desiagen making. I supose he had lots of ideas but I was not able to recognize it.
  • Prioretize. There were so many points to cover, and I tried to cover all at the same time. I think you can imagine how hardly effective that approach was in the end.
  • Create the agenda. I guess, this is the most important criteria to do sucsessful briefing. If you know the main propose of the briefing that realy helps you to go straight to your goal.
