Being restaurant owners in these times has put us on the ‘small business frontlines’ of the pandemic and what we know is this: Businesses are navigating brand new waters in a brand new social landscape, and key team members who have the energy and stamina to keep up and stay positive are essential to keep business running. But how do we keep those people, without begging, bribing or bullying them?

By creating an environment that tells them: we want more FOR you than FROM you. We do this with systems of culture that promote: empowerment, character development, communication, safety and trust. This presentation is designed to help you architect your own system around these things for your team, whether you have 500 employees, or you’re a team of one. Bring more productivity, harmony and retention to your team by understanding these key points from this presentation!  

  • Culture impacts not only the top and bottom line of any business, but every line in between (including small teams and solopreneurs!).
  • Designing an environment of culture starts with intentionally learning about the subject and understanding the ways it will benefit your results!
  • How to discover what culture looks like in action and what it really means (hint: it’s WAY more than position perks!)
  • Finding tactics and language tools for getting through to your millennial and Gen-z employees (the majority of the current workforce)
  • See examples of culture in action and the benefits to cultivating emotional, physical and psychological safety in the workplace

About our speakers:

When Kay and Shila were 10 and 17, their parents quit their careers and “bet it all” to buy a tiny breakfast restaurant in a California ski town. These sisters instantly gained a front row seat to the drama of American entrepreneurship, all while bussing tables and working the new family business on the daily.

As they became adults, they joined the ownership and helped grow the business into a national brand featured on Food Network and in the New York Times. With Mom and Dad now retired, Kay and Shila lead the business as it serves millions of guests across multiple states each year. Often noted for their unique marketing strategies and dedication to development Kay and Shila continue to seek new business growth and opportunities.

On an even broader stage, Kay and Shila share their stories and strategies as speakers and podcasts hosts, and as the marketing faculty for leadership expert and bestselling author John Maxwell’s 25,000-member team. They love to deliver delightful experiences coupled with results-oriented focus. Whether they’re running a half marathon, on stage in front of thousands, or driving the kids home from school, they pursue fulfillment and encourage others to do the same. In their precious down time, Kay and Shila enjoy spending time with their husbands and children in their hometown of Reno, Nevada.
