So you’ve done single property revenue management – you did it well. You made the leap to two properties; handled that well too. Then moved to group level, to get a measure of the depth of analytics involved, the reporting systems, and the commercial application of revenue management across a brand. You ate that for lunch… You got your first cluster management role! Yay! What’s the next career step?
Are revenue managers the future hospitality leaders?
Looking at the headlines, a career in revenue management is inviting. “Revenue managers are the hospitality leaders of tomorrow” – Robert Cook as CEO of De Vere in Hotel and Caterer magazine “Revenue Managers set to become the CEOs of the future” – Calvin Anderson, Director of Revenue, The Lexington New York City and member of HSMAI’s Revenue Management Advisory Board in HSMAI leaders discussion…
Yes that could be you – but how are you going to get there? What plans do you have to build on your management skills?
The commercial skills of the revenue manager contribute a huge proportion of future management talent. Gaining soft skills, an ability to build teams and manage people is a vital capability to demonstrate on your route to the top, and will make you stand out from others on the same journey.
Safeguarding the future of your team
Ever thought about your own team building capabilities? Do you engage and inspire your team? Or will you lose them – are you the only thing standing in the way of them and their next promotion? Knowing that there are limited opportunities for promotion or salary increases, are there times when you struggle to find ways to inspire and enthuse them?
One of the primary functions of a new manager is team management. This means understanding how a team works, how to build a team, and understanding how to identify and grow the skills of the individual through coaching and mentoring techniques.
