Embracing Change

Starting afresh at a new company is exciting. But, when faced with several unfamiliar systems, pressures and experiences, it can be a little overwhelming. We want to give you a few tips on how you can use Lobster Ink to adjust to a new role or establishment, and follow your path to success.

Settling in
A new job can be an information overload. It’s normal to feel uneasy about remembering all of your new procedures and responsibilities, but with Lobster Ink you don’t have to be. Not only do Lobster Ink’s courses incorporate expert skills and knowledge, they can also be watched multiple times so you never have to forget anything.

Sharing the journey
It’s important that you ask for help. Everything seems simpler when we are able to learn from other people. You don’t have to get lost or spend hours doing things the wrong way. The Lobster community is diverse and widespread. Whether at your establishment or on social media, you can speak to, and share information with other lobsters who are on your journey with you.

Finding your place
The best way to feel at home in no time is to meet people. This will help you find out what the best practices are at your new establishment. Lobster Ink teaches a range of skills and techniques such as active listening and proper body language, to give you the confidence to interact with Guests and colleagues. So, introduce yourself to your new colleagues. Find out what they do and let them know that you are eager to learn and to be of assistance!
