Best advice: Simply put, the best advice I have received that holds true for me is that communication is key: Communication allows me to obtain the guidance I need from co-workers to be successful in my role, and it allows me to build stronger relationships and to network more efficiently. It also reminds me to speak to our guests and team members in the same manner that I would want them to speak to me, in both tone and content.
