Lefty’s 11 Points of Culture
I am either 100% committed or 0% committed – there is no in between. I recognize and embrace that even though I may work part-time hours, I still have full commitment to our processes, our customers, my teammates, our culture, and our vision.
If it’s going to be, it’s up to me! I take complete responsibility, accountability, and ownership for ensuring my tables and customers have an amazing experience, being a caring and professional team member, and striving towards my personal goals and our team goals. I take action and own every situation and do whatever it takes to complete what I notice needs doing. I am proud of the business, my teammates, our food, our service, and our customer loyalty. I will hold myself accountable to make everyday at Lefty’s a great day.
I strive to deliver excellence at all times. My customers deserve excellence and my team deserves excellence. The food I prepare and serve will always be of the highest quality. The customers I serve will always receive my full attention and professionalism. My team and my company can rely on my commitment to excellence with every task I do. Good enough isn’t.
I never assume. I communicate clearly and thoroughly and I understand that ‘true communication’ – is the response I get. I will immediately communicate any information that may affect the safety, enjoyment, or experience of my customers, or my team members. I speak positively at all times about Lefty’s Cafe and our team, and only address concerns in private with the person involved. I am strongly aware that I communicate with my tone and body language as well as with my voice and I take care to ensure my overall communication leaves customers with a fantastic experience.
I acknowledge that Lefty’s reputation has been built on quality and consistency. I strive to deliver a consistent experience and product to my customers at all times. I also strive to be consistent in carrying out the process and systems outlined as part of my position.
I respect the need for systems, and the thought that went into all our current systems. I follow the company systems at all times. When I see an opportunity to improve a current system I communicate my ideas at the appropriate times and situations.
I believe that if I am willing to learn, nothing can stop me; and if I’m not willing to learn, nothing can help me. I am a lifelong learner. I always embrace the education and training provided to me by Lefty’s and I always look to learn on my own terms as well. I will always be open to looking at new ways of doing things, and I help educate my teammates.
I have pride in myself, my team members, or food, our company, and our culture. I understand that how I do one thing is how I do everything, and I take pride in everything I do. I will ensure that I can look back and be proud of every moment of everyday – proud of the way I served and treated our customers, proud of the way I looked after our restaurant and team members, and proud of myself.
I trust my team members, and my team members and customers can always trust me. I never forget there are several moving parts that make up a great day at our restaurant and that I must have trust, and be trustworthy. I can be relied on. I am a reliable person, team member, and customer service provider. I can be trusted for my consistency in performance, actions, behaviour, and mindset. I trust that our business is always looking after its people, customers and community, and our business can in turn trust in me.
I am proud to live, work, and make an impact in my community. I am committed to ensuring our restaurant is a safe, friendly, honest, and reliable community foundation that provides great food, careers, and financial and social impact to the community and surrounding area.
I enjoy myself, my team members, my customers, and my career at our Lefty’s. I understand that fun is contagious, and that my demeanor, tone, and body language can significantly impact the enjoyment and experience of my customers and all around me. I will only remain at our restaurant as long as I am having fun, and not a day longer.
