Unlock the Potential


How can you succeed in making your customers feel at home and make them want to come back? What does effective talent development look like that is motivating and also fun? IFH trainings take their inspiration from 4 basic approaches: the service culture of hospitality, Reverse Thinking, the FISH! Philosophy and the insights of Emergenetics. With respect to service culture, hospitality is seen as the benchmark and as an innovator by many sectors, like retail, aviation, automotives and finance. Sector-independently it applies that where salesmen turn into hosts, customers can become raving fans. As Inspirators For Hospitality, we want to help you become an ideal host!

Together, they decide to re-evaluate their LMS and each team member takes away their marching orders. The following week – after Chris has...

Cultural Diversity - Employee Engagement
How To Embrace Cultural Diversity in the Employee Experience?

Culture is not easy to grasp... An organizational culture is dynamic and shifts constantly in response to external (new clients, trends) and internal (leadership, new employees, etc) changes. So, trying to grasp culture is complicated by the reality that is changing on a daily basis. But is that necessary to define the ideal organizational culture? I don’t think so.
