What do you think about a series of posts that deal with books I am reading? I am thinking it would be valuable for me, and interesting for a few readers, to cull the most entertaining and impactful points and note them here for discussion.

Some of the texts will be professional development types and others will be topical and based on novels. I will categorize them so you don’t have to scroll through irrelevant posts.

First up will be excerpts from the excellent business tome by NYC restaurateur Danny Meyer. The title, Setting the Table: The Transforming Power of Hospitality in Business, gives hardly a clue about the amazing business lessons couched in the exciting money and anxiety-drenched restaurant scene in America’s gustatory capital, the Big Apple.

These points will include nuggets including Meyers lessons on enlightened hospitality; gentle, constant pressure to achieve optimal team performance; and “trailing” as a way to get all members of his organization to buy in to hiring and staff morale issues. Check back Monday when you have a minute.
