Cornelia's perspective originates from her vast experience in transforming and managing International Hotel Chains, and her current role leading her own advisory firm CK Hospitality and CK Collective as of 2005.

In this podcast episode, she stresses two vital points – the importance of a service mindset and viewing employees as more than mere resources.

Cornelia advocates that a service mindset, characterized by an empathetic understanding of employees and guests, is a cornerstone of success in hospitality. Listening, she emphasizes, is the key tool to bridge the gap between management and employees, leading to enhanced company operations and improved service for guests.

Moreover, Cornelia underscores the importance of viewing employees as assets rather than costs. She stresses the necessity to humanize workplaces and nurture an environment of continuous learning, clear communication, and understanding. She suggests that by investing in training, employees can deliver exceptional guest experiences, which translates into increased value for the industry.

Cornelia also discusses the growing demand for leadership development programs aimed at building positive and resilient organizations. She emphasizes breaking down silo mentalities and intelligently leveraging AI will help leaders maximize impact.

This episode offers significant insights for anyone seeking to understand the evolving dynamics of the hospitality industry.
