Today we are proud to introduce you to Vivian Campbell. Vivian is a recognized leader with over 20 years of experience in hospitality management, openings, and customer service training. Below are her answers to three questions which shouldn't take more than 2min of your time. #womenleaders #womeninhospitality #nightingalehospitality #sheleads
Do you experience resistance when you are leading men? Absolutely, but not all men. Unfortunately, there are a lot of men who will always believe they know more than women and do not like taking direction from them. I always work on building a relationship with everyone on my team. I use rapport and great reasoning when leading. I ask for input and inspire members to be the best they can be. Team members need to know they are heard and supported.
As a female leader in hospitality, what has been the most significant barrier in your career? Me, myself and I. There are times when I want to give up, often times having to work two and three times harder than others. Or I think everything I have achieved is good enough and I become complacient. Luckily I continue to surround myself with people who are better than me so I continue to aspire to grow and accomplish even more.
6.) Where can we find you at 10am on a Saturday? At home doing chores. This is after having gone to Trader Joe's and Target. Then it's cleaning time so I can knock everything out and relax and enjoy the weekend.
