What does winning look like for you this year? Today’s guest, Matt Rolfe, invites you to reflect on how you can work on yourself before you work on your team. Through his leadership coaching, Matt helps hospitality leaders and leadership teams achieve the results they want and deserve. His latest book, ‘You Can't Do It Alone: Focusing on People to Scale, Develop, and Lead Your Restaurant’, is a great read with some great insights about navigating the post-pandemic world. 

What stood out to me from this conversation was the power of clarity from asking the right questions. We also discussed who should invest in leadership training, identifying your goals with leadership development, his 4:30am ‘me-time’ routine, and how to stay relevant.
