#177 Kirk Pederson, President at Sightline Hospitality, on Enabling Decision-Makers and Idea Creators

Respect, collaboration and listening are some of the key attributes of the culture at Sightline Hospitality. It’s a third-party management company that redefines hotel management and has supported its employees “like a family” over the pandemic. The company’s President, Kirk Pederson, joins me to share how their business is refining and redefining hospitality through its strong employee culture.

Catch some of Kirk’s sound advice when it comes to building an environment that leaves his staff feeling respected, trusted and empowered. We also touch on throwback brands, how to grow through word-of-mouth, what it’s like operating as a third party, and how you can make your own “work family”.
