Challenge Series - The Eagle and the Storm

Challenge Series: The Eagle and the Storm

Day in day out you’re focusing on efficiency, bottom line, etc. But it’s equally important your employees are motivated and inspired. If they feel they can make a difference they will go an extra mile. And in the hospitality business that is the competitive edge. With that in mind here’s this week’s challenge.


Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is approaching long before it breaks?

The eagle will fly to some high spot and wait for the winds to come. When the storm hits, it sets its wings so that the wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is soaring above it.

The eagle does not escape the storm. It simply uses the storm to lift it higher. It rises on the winds that bring the storm.


Knowing that we can use the worst of times to uplift us is a powerful realization we can have. Have your team write down something they are going through that is giving them trouble and how they are going to re-examine this event in a brighter light. This could be financial, emotional, spiritual, etc.


At the end of the week, you can post some of the more relatable stories. We are looking for ways more people can find inspiration from these things and help the greater good.
