#99: Rely on Your Team to Identify a Toxic Restaurant Manager

 May 29, 2024 by David Scott Peters

You might have heard the saying, "People don't quit jobs; they quit managers." This is particularly true in our fast-paced, high-stress industry.

A toxic manager can create a negative atmosphere and fail to lead by example, significantly affecting morale and productivity.

In this episode of my restaurant podcast, The Restaurant Prosperity Formula, I am breaking down undeniable impact toxic managers have on your restaurant. I also outline how you can create and maintain a positive work environment, specifically by creating a positive culture in your restaurant. I will also cover how to build up your team’s confidence in that culture so they help you keep toxic managers out of your restaurant.

A great restaurant isn't just about the food—it's about the people.

Ensuring a healthy, positive work environment is key to achieving prosperity and freedom from your business. By identifying toxic managers early, communicating clearly, setting expectations, monitoring progress, and promoting a positive culture, you can create a thriving restaurant environment where everyone prospers.
