Life Lessons You'll Learn From Working In Hospitality Ah, hospitality — that wonderful industry of odd hours, cheeky staff banter and blissful servitude. Unfortunately for many of us, this happy world only occupies us during the awkward years between high school and our forever-job, that mythical future where we will experience consistent work hours, regular pay and, dare I say it, weekends. Despite all its flaws, working in hospitality during these formative years provides us with invaluable life lessons; ones that will never really leave us. As they always say, you can take the girl out of the café, but if you take the caffeine out of the girl, she’s probably going to be completely useless. When that one customer takes a shine to you and proceeds to tell you about their new hip replacement, their kids or whatever else you’re not interested in, it can be difficult not to let your irritation show. Hospitality work spans crazy hours and seems to be a prime exemplar of Murphy’s Law. (Lead image: 2 Broke Girls/CBS)

Sligo woman jailed for 28 days over coughing in garda’s face A Sligo woman has been jailed for 28 days for coughing in the face of a garda. Rachel Conway appeared before Judge Kevin Kilrane at a special sitting of Carrick-on-Shannon District Court on Wednesday after she coughed directly into the face of an officer on patrol in Sligo at 3.15pm on Tuesday. Conway, a mother-of-three from Rusheen Ard, Caltragh, Sligo, faced two counts, one of section 2 assault of Community Garda Martha Carter and one relating to her refusal to give her name and address. The court heard how Garda Carter was on bike patrol when a report came in that a group of people were drinking at the new footbridge, Riverside in the town. Garda Carter found three females and one male drinking in the area. She said Conway was “disruptive from the start”, asking the garda what the problem was. When the garda asked for names and addresses, all in the group but Conway provided details. Defending solicitor Laura Spellman said her client had a “significant amount of alcohol on board”.

Command & Control: Let’s talk about power January 2nd, 2012 Command and control isn’t just a mindset and a style of management (though it is both those things). What we don’t often talk about is the power that rests with people in management roles. Traditional managers have power, and that power comes from different sources. Part of what rankles people in traditional organizations is the way managers wield power. I’m not suggesting throwing out all managers or eliminating all controls–controls help ensure a system is functioning within appropriate boundaries. The notion that managers must keep people in line assumes that those people are neither responsible nor intelligent–that left to their own devices, they will make irresponsible and stupid mistakes. One way to dis-aggregate power is to delegate some power to teams. People in management roles can share hiring decisions with the teams who will work with the new person.
