Looking for hospitality training? 100 people experienced Kind Dining® in January, here are 6 of the top comments:

1. I enjoyed being here….. I learned something I never thought of. Cindy made it interesting in a way that made me listen and learn.
2. Lots of good information for all levels of staff.
3. Cindy was really able to keep the groups attention by having us interact. I really liked that..it was informative and brought clarity on several unclear procedures.
4. I am impressed. Although I did dislike having to leave my office… Once I was here I appreciated the class. “I am a person who can be a little hard to convince” .{“change in dining is comin”}
5. The class was very informative. I walked away with a little more knowledge of dining and services and tools we need to make a better experience for residents and guests of my community.
6. This is a great program and everyone benefits from it.  We take our residents for granted and the only thing they ever want is a smile, hello, and thank you.

I enjoy teaching Kind Dining (hospitality and customer service) workshops and helping  community staff at all levels learn new skills to implement right away which improves their service  at mealtimes.  I will be sharing more about my recent experience in St. Louis, working with Bethesda Health Group Inc. A company which is bringing Higher Standards of service to their residents, through skill development and relationship building of their staff.
