What Goes Around Truly Comes Around
Everyone has heard the old saying, “What goes around comes around.” And this rings true in the field of Event Planning. Successful Event Planners all over the world will tell you that the people that are sadly looked down upon (waiting staff, bellhops, cleaning crew, banquet captains, and others in servitude positions) are usually the very individuals that will get you out of a sticky situation. That is why I will be talking about the importance of being nice and granting respect to everyone on the event staff regardless of their station or duties.
Understanding and acknowledging the importance of everyone’s role in your event will help keep your mind “team-centered”. Working from a place of gratitude and respect for everyone’s talents will afford you the greatest benefits for pulling off a flawless event. Remember, you can’t do it all by yourself…an event is a machine that requires all of the mechanics working properly to execute a successful event. Whether setting table decor or cleaning up after an event, every role is just as important and vital as the next.
For example, the cleaning lady with the master keys to the venue will be less likely and inclined to help you when just two hours earlier you were demeaning her. The chef or caterer preparing the meals for your event will think nothing of providing extra cuisine for crashers if you have treated them with the dignity they truly deserve. Do you see the contrast here? You would be surprised at how people you treat with appreciation and regard will bend over backwards to assist you when you are in need. Keep the Golden Rule at the forefront of your thoughts and you can expect nothing but accolades, success, and eager new clients raining down on you. The best part is that is just feels good to work in an environment fueled by positive and edifying energies. Employing this philosophy fosters good business relationships and opens the doors to many profitable opportunities in the future.
The Golden Rule of treating others as you would like to be treated should not only apply to your business dealings, but your life as a whole. As always WE would like to wish you the best in all that you do! If you have questions or comments please feel free to post them below or shoot me an email.
