By nature, the hospitality industry has a diverse workforce. By being humble and open-minded, you’re able to learn from those who are different from you. Remaining humble, yet confident is a great way to gain expertise from other people’s experiences and avoid making the same mistakes yourself. Simply staying humble, no matter your job title, will take you farther than you think. 


You’ve probably heard it before: it’s all about who you know! While there may be exceptions, a trusted job referral is a great way to get your foot in the door—and it may even be the reason you get the job. By staying positive and outgoing in professional settings, you’re setting yourself up for success as you never know when you’ll need a recommendation or just encounter a previous colleague or counterpart. 


Having the courage to take risks in the hospitality industry is crucial. There’s no clear career progression in hospitality management—your future is completely up to you! By taking risks, you’re able to test your strengths and weaknesses, learning more about yourself and where exactly you’re able to thrive in the industry. 


Strong communication is the foundation of any successful relationship. On the surface, communication is what you choose to say to someone else. When you dive deeper, this act goes beyond to include how you say something, your body language that accompanies these words, and how you react to the other person’s response. Communication is the best way to make someone feel valued, educated, comfortable, and at ease—important traits in the hospitality industry and in life.
