To allow staff members to expand their capabilities in order to promote excitement and retention, Daniel del Olmo, CEO of Disruptive Restaurant Group, parent of Umami Burger, reassigns staffers to other projects or areas of the company. “I’m a big believer of providing and allowing people to stretch beyond what they believe their capabilities are through stretch assignments,” he said at the Restaurant Leadership Conference in April. This strategy also gives leadership a sense of who should be nurtured as the next generation of leaders and who is struggling.
