AP Podcast – Episode 90: In the mailbag – a question about passion in the attractions industry

Company Culture, Podcast

A loyal listener sent us this question: “Where is the passion for the Industry? So many managers have pressure from on high to raise the numbers. When the focus is on the team to enjoy their work, that emits to the guests having a better experience. What can managers do to make sure that doesn’t happen?”

She brings up a great point, one that many managers struggle with. As Matt and Josh discuss, passion for the industry can come in many forms, and sometimes the people in middle management can be in the toughest position of all, because they are the ones called upon to inspire the team AND watch the numbers.

If you have a question for the mailbag, we’d love to hear it!
