This week's Talking Tuesday we'll be covering Peak: How Great Companies Get Their Mojo from Maslow by Chip Conley. PEAK takes Abraham Maslows Hierarchy of Needs theory and and applies it to the hospitality industry. I couldn't figure out exactly what to share from the book and what not to share, so I decided to cover the 7 Practices of PEAK Leadership which is an article written by Chip Conley in the Huffington Post. These 7 practices of PEAK Leadership are not taken from the book, but they very closely parallele the messages of the book. Apply these 7 concepts and your restaurant dreams will be unstoppable.
