Social Media: What Most Companies Don’t Know..

Hi every one,

Here is another interesting side that I came across.

We all know that social media a is something that we are all familiar with and use in one way or another, so it was interesting to see that there are still companies out there that don’t know what to do.

Only 58% of the companies are engaged in social media. Hope you enjoy this link.

Social Learning Theory.

As a hospitality instructor it’s a little more difficult modelling or demonstrating the right behaviours. So,that said, I like to use role play when time permitting as well as brainstorming session where I have the student analyze real case scenarios and than provide them with my own personal industry experience when I provide feedback. This really helps them understand why certain behaviour as a manager is so important.
