Painting and Decorating Made Easier!

Hotel management coaches say a team member’s on-the-job success is 90 percent relationship skills, and 10 percent technical skills.


In hotel/facility painting, that is true. Until the property starts to look shabby, old, and poorly maintained.


Then, the painter that gets along with everyone has to get moving. Visiting less, and working more!


Usually, the most skilled and productive staff painter is not among the most friendly staff or team members of a hotel or facility. His or her bottom line is to get the work done. On time and right! Anything less is considered unprofessional and unacceptable.


Yes, every hotel staff painter – like every staff member – would like to be liked. He or she would like to fit in, and be a part of the group. He or she would like to find the time, and have the freedom, to stand around and chat on and off throughout the day.


That is a luxury that very few staff painters will have.


So, they aim for a 50-50 relationship and technical skills arrangement on the job.


1. They say, or wave, “hello” when they see another staff/team member.

2. They stop and visit a few minutes, a few times throughout the work day, with a few staff members.

3. They eat lunch or take their break with a coworker, who’s off at the same time.

4. Etc., etc., etc.


They try to fit in these brief “connections” when they can. They try to fit them in when, to do so, will add to, not interfere with, their job.


They try to fit in teammate visits and joking around when it also supports and strengthens their employer’s and the organization’s objective for having a painter there in the first place.

Encourage one another day after day, as long as it is “TODAY!”
