Crafting Culture: Tapping into the Needs of Your Staff

Craft Brewers Conference 2021
Location: Denver, Colorado
Speakers: Chris Deferio

As craft beverage professionals we obsess over the drink we love. Its history, nuances, and culture are all part of why we are passionate and driven to tend to the details so it can reach its full potential under our care. The question is, do we care for our staff as well as we care for the product we make?

Just like creating an amazing beer, coffee, or cocktail, crafting a great employee culture does not happen accidentally. In an increasingly saturated market, your culture is your competitive advantage that will give momentum to both the taproom and the production floor. A lack of meaningful and purposeful management breeds apathy, high turn-over, burn out, and toxic work cultures. If you want a staff just as dedicated to the success of your business as you are, then you need to first be dedicated to caring for them.

In this seminar, Chris Deferio will present the essential elements that go into successfully managing and caring for the people who make your business run. He will cover models for communication, building trust, utilizing feedback, and actionable steps to fully embrace your role as a facilitator of your staff’s success and ultimately the success of your business.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn strategies for staff retention and growth
  • Talk about models for communication and trust
  • Gain clarity on your role as a servant-leader to the staff
  • Discuss how to build a thriving work culture
