Ep 5: Building A Culture Of Care | Monty Schiro

In this episode, we talk with Monty Schiro! Monty is the creator of Food Fight Restaurant Group, a locally owned and operated restaurant group in the greater Madison area with a group of unique and diverse restaurants. Here, Monty and I discuss the importance of prioritizing employees, how to provide for your community as a leader, and why the simplicity of truly caring for others is not overrated.

Suggested tools:

-You sometimes learn what to do in life by learning what not to do

-Listen to your employees; Know people’s stories

-Remember that nobody does it alone

-Driving test! Would you be able to take a road trip with someone and look forward to the conversation on the way back? If so, that could be a good person to hire!

-If you say you care about people, be sure to back up your words with actions

-Seek to understand before being understood

-You don’t want to surround yourself with people who just say “yes”, but with people who have the same end-goal
