    Hiring Rick — our most important unilateral move

    My wife and I had perfected what we called Zen management and were happy with the culture we had created. But we had little knowledge of the science of restaurant operations that Rick brings to daily policies and procedures.

    He has no ego and conveys his limitless knowledge by disarming you, teaching skills, building confidence, then applying just the right amount of pressure to move you forward again. We consider our decision to hire Rick the single most important unilateral move we have made in our five years of ownership.

    The essential tool for succeeding in the restaurant industry

    A perfect storm of conditions nearly ended the decade-long run of my four-restaurant concept in 2017.

    GoGo Graves Consulting effectively changed that in seven short months.

    Rick’s approach to motivating the current young restaurant workforce is brilliant! I am old school—do your job, bust your ass, take the win—that is lost on today’s workforce. Rick drives results based on adapting your management style to fit your employees’ individual personalities. He identifies non-performers and brings management teams together. GoGo Graves Consulting is the essential tool for anyone wanting to succeed in the restaurant industry.

    His workshop provided many aha moments

    Rick facilitated my first solo workshop and it far exceeded my expectations! He is that rare person who has a balanced right brain/left brain approach.

    A strong critical thinker whose goal is to understand one’s business objectives, Rick made sure that what I wanted to achieve with my workshop happened.

    By using creative and logical tactics, he kept the participants thoroughly engaged. Rick also offered thought-provoking activities that provided many aha moments for participants (and me). He truly is the ultimate facilitator and trainer, garnering respect and showcasing the talents of each person there. Plus his smart wit and sunny personality make him just plain fun to be around.
