As an accommodation professional, you are confronted on a daily basis at tactical and operational level with the impact of the strategic course of your organization. Armed with this experience, what would you do differently if you could set the strategic course? In this article you will be taken into the strategic thinking world of general management and how you can make a substantial tactical contribution to Profit (good for organization) and also to Prosperity (good for all) with accommodation. The current economic situation makes it necessary for almost all organizations to look critically at cost reductions, but at the same time also at turnover retention / increase.

“Growth (constant improvement of oneself) + Purpose (higher purpose of helping others) =
