Welcome to Part 2 of our 5 part “Cinema Readiness Series”. If you missed Part 1, you can find it here. We left off last time talking about taking proactive charge of our situation to make ourselves better when we reopen.
But now, what to do with the time that is given to us?
Maximize this time to build the skills and tools managers need to make the organization more cost-efficient and profitable.
The reality is that many theaters will have to hire 50%+ new staff once we reopen. We want our leaders to represent the best of what our theater offers, instill the culture we strive to create, and embody the skills of our best employees. We also want our leaders working effectively, saving costs and contributing to the bottom line. Therefore, the two most important skillsets to develop managers and focus on building and refining right now are: Employee Interviewing and Effective Communication.
