Kent Burkhart "Tips To KEEP That GM Job"
Bookmark this blog. KB updates it weekly, and it's almost always good info from a longtime insider.
* Always say nice things about your boss…especially to your fellow company GM’s…and particularly to your wife who may talk to the other GM’s wives. * No matter how angry you get at a staff member do not scream, rant, and rave. Instead, smile and work with them to solve the problem/issue. The staff member may be golfing partners with your boss (this is a small world)…and you do not want any negative statements said about you. (And if you play golf with your boss don’t snicker when he/she fades one out of the fairway). * Never ask for a raise…or an adjustment in your bonus package. Earn them by being a great GM. * Know your P and L budget and LINE ITEM expenses by MEMORY. Your boss will certainly ask about them from time to time…when you do not have your P and L in front of you…like at lunch. * Prioritize your annual CAPEX expenses. Your boss will only approve a few in all probability.
