Executives, Professors Debate Leadership at Cornell Roundtable

CEOs and other senior executives from leading hospitality companies and professors from the Cornell Hotel School

CEOs and other senior executives from leading hospitality companies and professors from the Cornell Hotel School gathered recently to take part in the School’s first roundtable on leadership. Sponsored by the School’s Center for Hospitality Research, the event provided a forum to explore the many facets of a personal attribute often studied but never quite fully understood.



In the opening session participants sought to define leadership and the extent to which it can be measured. A second session focused on the need to develop and retain leaders in hospitality, viewed by some as a relatively mature service industry. Another discussion centered on the challenges leaders face in instilling trust in employees and maintaining that trust during periods of rapid change. In the final session, participants debated how leaders can best create and sustain a culture in which employees maintain an emotional commitment to both the company and its service delivery.



The roundtable attracted a diverse group who shared provocative views on how leadership is practiced by different sectors of the industry, said Bill Eaton, president & COO, Cini-Little International, Inc. ,Much of the discussion centered on how each sector can enhance or improve its own style, which I found extremely beneficial.
