LEADERSHIP IS A PRACTICABLE, LEARNABLE SKILL.

As leaders of the lives we conduct, the businesses we run,
the teams we build, and the communities we serve,

it is our responsibility to pursue mastery.

WORKING WITH A LEADERSHIP COACH AT SALT & ROE
HELPS HOSPITALITY PROFESSIONALS MASTER THE MINDSET TOOLS, HABITS
AND SELF-TRUST NEEDED TO LIVE AND LEAD SUSTAINABLY.

 

Our Leadership Development Program guides you through the process of identifying opportunities for growth to realize measurable results. Whether you have crystal clear clarity on the personal and professional goals you're reaching toward and are looking for experienced accountability partnership to get you there, or if you feel burnt-out, stuck or altogether unclear on what it would take to imbue your work and life with more meaning, Salt & Roe provides active coaching from hospitality leaders who have walked in your shoes, for hospitality leaders looking to make intentional shifts and disrupt unsustainable patterns, develop daily practices, and learn new tools that support industry professionals in living and leading authentically. 

There is no map for successfully leading a life, a team, or a business. 
But, there is a compass...and it points true north!

UPLEVEL YOUR LEADERSHIP. GET UNSTUCK.  

CRAFT A CLEAR VISION

FOR THE LIFE YOU MOST WANT TO LEAD

 AND FIND THE COURAGE TO CREATE THAT REALITY.

“It's a masterclass in leadership (and life) that comes at the practice from so many relevant perspectives. The concepts and exercises within the program provide a vital tool box you'll come back to over and over again; the nuggets of truth you surface with your coach will expand your self-awareness and anchor you in practices that keep you shifting toward your own power (which feels fucking good). I can draw straight lines from what I learned in this program to actions I took that had a positive impact on myself, my team, and the organization.”

LAUNCHING A HOSPITALITY BUSINESS IS HARD.

We offer 3 separate coaching tracks for restaurateurs and retailers
looking for experienced guides to help develop and launch new hospitality concepts.

Depending on which stage of the work you are in, we can support you in...

Developing & Pitching your hospitality concept for investment 

Implementing & Executing your launch strategy for an on-time opening

Creating a branded Experiential Retail Program that drives traffic to your stores 

AS FORMER OWNERS, OPERATORS, AND A RETAIL EXECUTIVE WITH THE SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH OF TWO LIFESTYLE BRANDS FOR
MULTINATIONALS UNDER HER BELT, COLLECTIVELY,
WE’VE OPENED MORE THAN 35 CONCEPTS
(SOME MOM & POPS, SOME JAMES BEARD AWARD WINNERS...SOME BOTH). 

And we literally wrote the book on How to Open a Restaurant!

We know our way around an F&B business plan and we geek out on drafting critical paths. We use our coaching credentials to support creators in developing both the businesses they lead and the high performance skills they need to sustainably run operations that energize them. There is no project too small—nor expansive—we wouldn’t consider, no corner of the world too remote for us to support leaders who share our vision and values for developing concepts that connect us.

PACKAGE & PITCH YOUR NEW CONCEPT,
THEN TRANSFORM YOUR BUSINESS PLAN
INTO A SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH STRATEGY.

Work With Us
“Alison and Kimberly are true masters of their craft. You will receive expert structure, guidance and above all else truly caring, empathetic thought partners who are as invested in your project as you are. You will never feel like they are mailing it in or just trying to get to the finish line. We had instant teammates during a daunting phase of business development. There is no way we would have gotten where we did in 3 months without a program like this being available to us.”

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO SEE THE PICTURE WHEN YOU'RE INSIDE THE FRAME.

"Our guest experience is missing the mark and team morale is low."

"It's time to rethink our business but we don't know where to start."

"We're stuck on the turnover treadmill."

WE'VE SAID THESE WORDS OURSELVES.
WE'VE HEARD THEM FROM COUNTLESS CLIENTS.

WE'VE SHARED THESE DESIRES AND CREATED THESE END RESULTS.
AND, 
WE’VE LEARNED HOW TO SHIFT THEM.

Changing the outcomes you’re experiencing in your business requires an investment of time, resources and strategic thinking. It demands a commitment to digging beneath the surface and looking at the roots of what's present and missing in your operation. At Salt & Roe, we provide experienced hands and outside eyes to support leaders in examining their existing restaurants to make space for what comes next. Our two month Immersion & Discovery process allows us to get in the weeds with you and your leaders before presenting integrated recommendations for growth. The optional second phase of our work together provides you with expertise, coaching, and accountability partnership as you shift forward to implement your new strategy.

GET CRYSTAL CLEAR ABOUT THE ROOT CAUSES OF
THE CHALLENGES, OPPORTUNITIES AND RESULTS
YOU’RE CREATING IN YOUR BUSINESS AND
CRAFT A GAME PLAN TO GROW.
