Strengthening vs. Replacing

When dealing with a low-performing manager, owners have three options:

  1. Ignore the problem and hope it goes away
  2. Eliminate the problem and hope to find someone better
  3. Turn the problem into an asset

Ignoring the problem is a common reaction and always the least effective option. On the other hand, firing your manager can cost thousands of dollars and often involves unrest and possible loss of staff and customers. Your management team ends up running short while you search for a replacement manager. Labor costs and comps go up for a month while your new manager acclimates to your restaurant's staff, procedures, and clientele. Then you realize that this manager has his or her own shortcomings that you need to address.
