Guest Bio: Christine Porath is a tenured professor at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business. She's the author of Mastering Civility and co-author of The Cost of Bad Behavior. She is also a consultant working with leading organizations to help people and communities thrive. Her speaking and consulting clients include Google, United Nations, World Bank, Microsoft, Genentech, Marriott, 3M, Verizon, Ford, World Health Organization, and Cleveland Clinic. Highlights “What are the costs of these small interactions between people, that can make them feel disrespected or small?” [6:44] Christine Porath asks the big question that makes up research on the need for community in the workplace. “I stepped out of the shower and my back went out...I could not move, and it ended up being that the stress was exacerbated by toxic management. This fear based, intense pressure cooker that put unrealistic expectations on me.” [7:29] Marcel shares a story from his personal past and how toxic management caused physical injury due to stress. “We looked at witnesses, and it was taking them off track just as much. Their performance was declining by about 33%.” [16:42] When discussing the consequences in her research, Christine shares some statistics on productivity all the way down to the witnesses of negative interactions beyond those directly involved. “Nearly 50% said because they would be at a disadvantage if they were civil or respectful at work. They thought they would be less leader like.” [18:14] Christine shares some interesting insights on the reason behind rude or negative behavior in the workplace. “I'm really curious, on what you saw as maybe one or two of the worst examples of incivility in the research.” [20:46] Marcel, intrigued by Christine's research in negative behavior in the workplace, lines up space for Christine to share some examples involving public belittling of employees during meetings. “74% of people are actually more engaged, 81% are more likely to stay with the company…83% reported higher thriving at work and a sense of being more energized, alive, and growing.” [24:14] Marcel lists some eye-opening stats on the positive impact of a strong community at work. Christine comments on the difference it would make for employees to prioritize working in an environment with a sense of community. “Everyday they would meet in this film room, and it wouldn't be about the X's and O's, the strategies, the game. It was this idea of sharing information, and being vulnerable, and talking about things that mattered.”[31:10] Christine explains an example of Uniting People, with a story of coach Phil Jackson and the Chicago Bulls. “It's these moments, that if you're mindful which is hard these days, can really make a difference to people.” [38:49] Christine talks about the impact of small moments in acknowledging and respecting people, like with her story of Empathy at Cleveland Clinic. “Given how important culture is whether you're PTA, or a school, or a local organization, we should prioritize culture and think about how do we continue to strive to get better?” [43:01] Sharing about Boosting Wellness, Christine gives examples of small but impactful ways to improve culture in the workplace. “There's community in so many ways, but people don't think about community in a work sense.” [49:00] Closing out today's episode, Marcel connects community as an important extension of love in the workplace.

Few sectors were hit harder by the pandemic than the hospitality sector. Hotels in particular faced devastating losses as travel came to a halt. For Marriott International, the world's largest hotel company, that meant closing some hotels and laying off or furloughing many employees. Two years later, Marriott is experiencing a remarkable recovery; employees are back to work, hotels are open, and in many cases they're full, almost back to record levels. Stephanie Linnartz is President of Marriott International. She earned her MBA at William & Mary and was recently here for Alumni Reunion Weekend. She sat down with us to talk about Marriott, leading through the pandemic, and her people-first approach. Learn how the Raymond A. Mason School of Business at William and Mary can help you and your organization develop your top talent through customized executive education and professional development programs.

It was autumn of 2012, when a young student at the University of New Hampshire, left a late night class to drive to a friend's apartment. According to the friend, she never showed up. An investigation into the disappearance was launched and investigators would reveal a dark underbelly to the world of BDSM, a world where consent is key but a world where sometimes, sadistic people are lurking, ready to take advantage.SPONSORS -June's Journey: Thank you to June's Journey for sponsoring this episode!

Are we heading for a recession - or are too many people simply trying to talk us into one? International businesses pull out of Russia - with Marriott taking a lead in the hotel sector. And how Africa continues to be an enigmatic opportunity for hotel brands.
Marriott's Homes & Villas unit is taking a different approach to the home-sharing business than many of its competitors, focusing its growth on the company's vast pool of loyalty members. This resource — Marriott Bonvoy — members is not a cap to Homes & Villas growth as some have claimed, Vice President Jennifer Hsieh said at the Skift Future of Lodging Forum on Thursday. Instead, she said this is a differentiator that a source of strength. “The industry has not anchored itself around a loyalty program,” Hsieh said of the short-term rental sector. “We lean into it.” Listen now for her full conversation with Skift Senior Hospitality Editor Sean O'Neill.

In this episode of the Hotel Design Podcast, we welcome Staci Patton, Principal & Hospitality Interior Design Director of DLR Group. This show was captured during the NEWH Leadership Conference in Seattle. Host Glenn Haussman has Staci start by explaining that DLR Group is a multidisciplinary design firm. Staci leads the hospitality studio, a boutique group within a larger organization, overseeing 60 people within the locations of Minneapolis, Chicago, and Kansas City. The projects that the team works on are varied, and include lifestyle and luxury boutique work. Staci says it is essential for boutique and lifestyle design is all about story telling. Without that, a hotel lacks an identity. Though it is easier to find a story through adaptive reuse buildings, even if a hotel is a new build, a smart story must be crafted to serve as a project's design throughline. For focused brand hotels, stories can be told through the local environment. Her diligent focus on storytelling derives from her original career goal, journalism, and she shares how she discovered her true calling for design. The first project discussed is the AC Scottsdale North. Staci and her team have worked on over 35 different AC Hotel designs. Part of the Marriott brand family, this property brand stands out for its classic European modernism design. The goal for all AC Hotels is that no AC Hotel looks the same due to the customized hyperlocal influences that are used as compliments to each hotel's design. In AC Scottsdale North, that translates to striking designs that are carried throughout the space to mirror the vertical lines of cacti found throughout Phoenix. Next, Glenn and Staci discuss the distinctions between classic style verses trends and how the design dialogue has morphed through the ages. Staci also shares insights on creating dynamic communal outdoor spaces. AC Scottsdale North's pool and lounge are shown as examples, which have biophilic elements such as fire, waterfalls, and plants incorporated into them. The next project is the Catbird Hotel, a Sage Hospitality property located in Denver's RiNo Art District. Partnering with branding company OMFGCO, the concept blurs the distinction between hotel and home. Distinctly eclectic, the design uses colors strategically throughout it. Spaces also need to be highly functional, as the property is designed for stays upwards of a month or more. The teams therefore created a loft-like space with expanded kitchenettes and an expanded social living zone. The Cottonwood Hotel, in Omaha is the next property examined. Formerly called the Blackstone, the property was historically a stopping space for people traveling from New York to the West when it first opened in 1916. The project started with a gutted hotel, so the team visited the nearby Durham Museum and worked historical Western elements into the common areas of the building's design. This Kimpton property leveraged the power of a historic building as a base from which to build a story. Meanwhile, the guest rooms have a very light and minimalist feel to help guests feel serene and relaxed. The final project brings us to Iowa for a look at the Surety Hotel, which the owners call a “modern grand hotel ushering an exciting new era in downtown Des Moines.” Another historic space, this hotel is a modern homage to the former bank & offices that were in the building's original intent. The Perry Hotel Group embraced elements such as mosaic tile, then paired it with modern Midwest inspiration. Staci shares advice that was given to her from one of her mentors when she started her career, and also shares an encouraging message for any new designers. Follow along with some great project visuals on our website - http://hoteldesignpodcast.com/ - and subscribe to our new Youtube page to watch the video interview!
"Not every hotel stock will do well. During the pandemic we saw a significant number of small and independent hotels close forever. The various government programs to provide financial support were simply not enough. We launched the BEDZ ETF this year to help investors have an easy way make this allocation in their portfolio, says Noah Hamman. "On the positive side, worker flexibility is driving higher long-term travel demand with higher income occupations being the most likely industries to continue to work from remote locations. On the negative front, there is more competition from vacation rentals and home rentals through sharing sites," adds Lee Bohl.

Ray opens the phone lines to talk elections. Russia took aim Sunday at Western military supplies for Ukraine, launching airstrikes on Kyiv that it claimed destroyed tanks donated from abroad, as Vladimir Putin warned that any Western deliveries of longer-range rocket systems would prompt Moscow to hit “objects that we haven't yet struck.” Marriott hotels will pull out of Russia following the latest wave of Western sanctions against Russian President Vladimir Putin's regime.

[audio mp3=“https://talkaboutlasvegas.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/Mike_Nigro_053022.mp3"][/audio] This week, Ira spoke with Mike Nigro, one of the principals of Nigro Construction, which specializes in non-gaming construction in Las Vegas (including hotels and taverns). Its current project, just completed, is the extended-stay hotel, TownePlace Suites by Marriott®, located in North Las Vegas. In this episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Mike talks about the history of the company as it grew over the decades; finding a non-gaming niche in the valley; why the company both owns and operates its limited-service hotels; why location is key; how the company looks for pockets in the valley that have built-up demand, but limited supply; and how taverns are a different business model.
Can we get a witness??? Testify! This week our rock n' roll grave robbers witness the rise of sumthin' funky! This time our journey through funky town takes sharp left and right turns as we get funk rock from bands that may not necessarily be associated with funk. Sometimes bands just get the urge to write songs that makes your body move and your booty groove. That's why we are asking the question, “Wah Da Funk???”What is it that we do here at InObscuria? We exhume obscure Rock n' Punk n' Metal in one of 3 categories: the Lost, the Forgotten, or the Should Have Beens. In this episode we take a listen to all 3, as we move n' groove our way through funk-infused rock n' roll from bands that don't typically play in the sphere of funkitude. Songs this week include:Jason Becker – “We Are One” from Triumphant Hearts (2018)I Mother Earth – “Like A Girl” from Scenery And Fish (1996)Steve Marriott – “Late Night Lady” from MARRIOTT (1976)The Organization – “Brainstorm” from The Organization (1993)The BusBoys – “D Day” from Minimum Wage Rock & Roll (1980)Petra – “Holy Ghost Power” from Come And Join Us (1977)fIREHOSE – “It Matters” from Ragin', Full-On (1986)LoveWar – “Keep Your Hands Off My Stuff” from Soak Your Brain (1993)Please subscribe everywhere that you listen to podcasts!Visit us: https://inobscuria.com/https://www.facebook.com/InObscuriahttps://twitter.com/inobscuriahttps://www.instagram.com/inobscuria/Buy cool stuff with our logo on it!: https://www.redbubble.com/people/InObscuria?asc=uIf you'd like to check out Kevin's band THE SWEAR, take a listen on all streaming services or pick up a digital copy of their latest release here: https://theswear.bandcamp.com/If you want to hear Robert and Kevin's band from the late 90s – early 00s BIG JACK PNEUMATIC, check it out here: https://bigjackpnuematic.bandcamp.com/Check out Robert's amazing fire sculptures and metal workings here: http://flamewerx.com/

When I was a General Manager at a hotel in Marriott, I came up with a purpose statement for all hotel staff to use as they did their job. "Be so nice to the guest they won't believe it." A listener asked if the purpose statement should change depending on the level of the employee. Your organization should have one purpose statement to apply to every role. Even if someone has a backstage role, they still contribute to how you serve the customer. Even if you never see a customer, understanding the purpose statement can change the way you approach your job. If "being so nice to the gues they won't believe it" is our purpose statement, it may change how you approach your backstage role. Maybe you make a purposeful walk through the lobby to say Hello to customers. Maybe you walk to your car slower to see if you can find a chance to help someone. Maybe you help out front-line workers so they are better prepared to serve. At Walt Disney World, our purpose statement is "make sure every Guest has the most fabulous time of their life." When Cast Members keep this top of mind, the front-line gets focus and support from managers and backstage roles. And the Guest wins. Everyone is focused on making sure every Guest has a fabulous time. No matter what your role or your organization, you can apply a purpose statement to drive you every day. When customers feel good about you, they will do more business with you.
After planning of months, our Napa Valley trip was destined to begin in San Francisco. Flying from south Florida to California meant our flight options required a layover, so we chose to splurge to fly first class on American Airlines (AA). American Airlines seemed to have the best options to fly from Southwest Florida. After a pretty easy travel experience, thanks to TSA Pre-Check and Global Entry, we arrived at our hotel, the Marriott Fisherman's Wharf which was just. short walk to all the action at the Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39.Since we were staying for two nights, we stayed at the Marriott and used Bonvoy points, and enjoyed the Marriott accommodations like food/drink vouchers and credits. The next morning, we woke up early to walk around Pier 39 and had a quick bite to eat and drink at Biscoff Coffee Corner, which had the best White Chocolate Mocha EVER. Pier 39 was so much fun and worth seeing because they have Sea Lions there that you can't miss. Especially during the summertime, this spot has tons of restaurants and entertainment for the whole family. After a morning exploring nearby, we headed off to Bay City Bikes where we booked a tour of the Golden Gate Bridge to a neighboring town called Sausalito. This was a guided tour on Electric Bikes that lasted about 3.5 hours before we were able to do our own thing and have options once we arrived in Sausalito. Our experienced tour guide from Bay City Bikes took us on bike paths through the city showcasing Fort Baker, views of Alcatraz Island, the passing of Ghirardelli Square, history of the city, and then we got to go over and UNDER the Golden Gate Bridge. That experience was somewhat wild - as it's very narrow on the walking/biking path on the bridge, but the views were truly unmatched and the pictures will last a lifetime. Once we were done with the Golden Gate Bridge, we made our way down some winding paths to Sausalito. The town was lined with boat home communities, painted mailboxes, quaint coffee shops, chocolate stores on every corner, and the most delicious restaurant, Poggio. After biking around for a few hours, the tour ended in Sausalito and you could either bike back on your own through the city, continue on to Tribuon, return your bike there for a surcharge, and take the ferry back. The ferry cost $16 a person and would take you back to San Francisco with your bike, but we chose to return our bikes in town, find a fun spot for dinner, and Uber back to our hotel. Uber was readily available everywhere we went in the city, and seemed to be somewhat cost effective compared to renting a car and paying for parking. The beautiful thing about traveling is when your friends and family are all spread out and your travels allow you to connect with the ones you love most. Our second and final night in San Francisco was dedicated to getting together with my high school best friends who reside in Berkeley/ Oakland area. For seafood lovers and a more high end atmosphere with one of the best views in San Francisco, the Waterfront Restaurant was perfect for lovers, friends, and celebrations. We wrapped up our night there, and began preparing for the next 3 days in Napa Valley. Before getting picked up in the morning to begin our wine excursions, we ate at Boudin and had lunch for breakfast - chili and soup in bread bowls. Best meal of the trip. If our trip was extended, we would have loved to go to Chinatown to explore, get a tour of Alcatraz island, and actually stop at Ghirardelli Square. Also, there are tons of great museums to visit, such as the pop up immersive museum for Frida Kahlo. Enjoy your next trip to San Francisco and as always stay safe and share your favorite recommendations with the travel brats. Thank you for tuning in and stay connected for the ultimate guide to Napa Valley coming your way.

Why MIPIM is So Important for International Relationships, with Brett Million In this episode of the #WorkBold Podcast, Caleb Parker is joined by Brett Million, Head of Strategic Partnerships at NewFlex, the UK's largest Space-as-a-Service operator that deploys the management agreement model. Brett has deep experience in Space-as-a-Service, having served as COO for Regus and managing their growth across the globe in the early 2000s. He is responsible for having created the NewFlex multi-brand growth strategy. In this episode, the two discuss why partnerships are important, how Brett was recruited by NewFlex's CEO to lead their growth strategy and some “behind the scenes” chat on how the Bold transaction took place. Brett announces imminent plans for taking the management agreement model to the European continent in partnership with forward thinking landlords, and how MIPIM has been instrumental in making this possible.

I've now used masterworks to invest in 10 different paintings, including a $15 million dollar Picasso.Here's how it works: Masterworks will buy a painting they think will appreciate well over time, then they securitize that painting with the SEC, so you can invest in it instead of buying the whole thing. Once they sell the painting, later on, you get your share of the proceeds. It's that simple. They've offered over 100 paintings so far and the three that have sold realized a net annualized gain over 30% per work. They have over 280,000 users and demand is as high as ever.

“I think one of the most important starting points, whether it be on social or environmental, is back to the measurement, setting a goal and making progress every single day towards that goal with actions….Even if that goal seems unattainable, challenging, unsure of what the steps are between X and Y. I think the fact that we put stakes in the ground and work towards them drives the behavior that we want to see.” Denise Naguib on Electric Ladies Podcast As more of us start to travel more, including planning summer vacations, think about the environmental impact of where you'll stay. Most hotels these days have sustainable practices and goals, but how do these massive properties really control their carbon footprint and water use, for example, and their waste? Listen to Denise Naguib, VP of Global Sustainability at Marriott in this wide-ranging conversation with Electric Ladies host Joan Michelson at a live net zero event in Washington, DC. (Electric Ladies was formerly known as Green Connections Radio.) You'll hear: How Marriott sets and achieves their sustainability goals How the executives incentivize their teams to follow through on the company's sustainability goals. How Marriott is supporting Ukrainian refugees who escaped the war by going to Europe. Plus, insightful career advice. And much more! “You can make a difference in any role that you are in. I think that is a really important thing to say. It is not about being part of the sustainability or social impact team that only then you can make a difference. Every single role in a company has the opportunity to make meaningful change, whether you are in finance or legal or operations or whatever it is, public relations. I think identifying how you can make that based on the skills that you bring forward, based on the opportunities that you can get involved in things I think is really invaluable.” Denise Naguib on Electric Ladies podcast Read Joan's Forbes articles here.
