Florists Review tip of the week

 

Calm the Holiday Rush
During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it’s important to keep your cool and create a productive vibe rather than chaos and commotion.

Floral expert Teresa P. Lanker, of The Ohio State University, shares several strategies:

• Prioritize: Organize your tasks for each day into three categories — “must do,” “should do” and “like to do.” Save the “like to do” tasks until everything else is complete — or even until after the holidays. A list can help you keep on track and feel accomplished.

• Communicate and delegate: Share your daily priorities with staff members so that everyone can work together to achieve the same objectives.

• Team up: For major decorating jobs, mass centerpiece orders and other big jobs, team up employees and allow them to work out their own production methods to meet deadlines.

• Celebrate: Don’t forget to set aside time to appreciate everyone’s good work – it can be as simple as a hot chocolate break or a special potluck lunch. Make sure, even during the busy times, that you and your employees take time to recharge and keep your energy up.
