Lisamarie, I don't really think I'm a lousy ski instructor. Some others around here think I am though! (Todd, you DO know who I'm talking about) I'm just having a little fun at his expense.
Todd, he was doing fine until he got all sh***y and started attacking everyone. If the Program is so great, share it with us. What made him so passionate about it? What were his big breakthroughs? How can it be incorporated into SKIING proper? First he was preachy, then he was childish, then he was no more. Pretty simple progression, don't you think? I'm bummed out because I never expected him to be SIMPLE.
Robin, I need a little help with my incentive Matrix here. I've got a system started where I pay my instructors much like you did... Particularly in the Request Private realm. I've divided different $ into 6 groups and assigned a point system to it like we did in AF. Group 1 makes 10% of price on top of hourly wage, Then I just added $2 to each row in that column up to group 6. Is this a sound system in your opinion. My boss seems to like it, but some of the categories will eventually require me to pay out 32% labor to revenue.(rarely) Little help!
