A trained eye and ear can tell much about an organization by listening to a weekly staff meeting…as a training provider we make it a point to as often as possible to attend our client’s staff meetings. This is one of the many reasons why the training and consulting we do actually sticks.
With the announcement of our Legendary Hotel Makeover winner’s legendary gains, I wanted to have a chat with Kenny Glavan, General Manager of the Four Points by Sheraton Biloxi. His hotel has begun their training process and I wanted to check in to see how things were going so far – the good, the bad and surprising. So far we have delivered Legendary Leadership, Service Edge, Service SkillKit, Transient Edge and Client Centered Sales training. Let’s see how they are doing with all the modules so far!

We’ve got some very exciting news coming out of the Legendary Hotel Makeover! Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide announced that Four Points by Sheraton Biloxi (our Legendary Hotel Makeover winner) has climbed to be the third best in Guest Loyalty Composite scores out of the 107 hotels in the Four Points by Sheraton brand! Before we began working with them, they were ranked as low as 15th across the brand only two months prior.
I was happy to be part of the hotel makeover project and work with the Four Points by Sheraton in Biloxi. In doing research about the hotel, I went to their website prior to my training session. This hotel is right on the Gulf of Mexico! What struck me right away is that when you walk in the front door, you can look straight through the lobby to the Gulf.
The second part to our service training is what we refer to as skill kit training. We provide managers and supervisors the tools to have a conversation about service with their staffs every day. Service isn’t something you can focus on for a day and move on, it needs to stay alive long after the class has ended.
