What it takes to be a great Leader

It all began on this day on the 27th of April, 1987

Today we congratulate Bill Ferg on the milestone achievement of 36 years in business! It’s a great accomplishment to be in the restaurant industry for such a long time, and it’s clear that our leader, Bill Ferg, has been the driving force in the success of the Lobster Cave Seafood & Steak restaurant.

In my view, a real leader is someone who has a clear vision, inspires and motivates their team, and is willing to put in the hard work to achieve their goals. A leader like Bill has shown strength, determination, focus, and passion in running the restaurant. He wakes up every morning with a positive attitude and always thinks about making a difference, even in challenging times.

A good leader also needs to have a solid foundation, which Bill clearly has. He understands the importance of accountability and measurement, and he has the resilience to navigate the ups and downs of the industry. He is focused on continuous improvement and is always looking for ways to do things differently and better.

Furthermore, a real leader needs to have the ability to negotiate and make deals. It’s crucial in the restaurant industry or to be successful in any industry, and Bill’s hunger for the day-to-day grind is relentless. He loves what he does, and it shows in his work ethic and commitment to his staff, clientele and the overall restaurant’s success.

Overall, Bill’s leadership qualities have undoubtedly been a major tribute to the Lobster Cave’s success, yet if you speak with Bill, he will say it has been a team effort.  There is no “I” in TEAM!   It’s inspiring to see a business thrive, despite the challenges and obstacles it has faced, and I am grateful to have played a part in it over the years.

Today is 36 years of the Lobster Cave being a go-to destination whereby many people celebrate the milestones in life.  Also, a day whereby I am sure Bill would reflect on if these walls could talk.  The funny scenarios, the crazy, the hilariously funny and the unforeseen that can only take place in restaurant culture. Today is a day whereby we are grateful for our many customers that have supported us over the years and still do.  Without you, we couldn’t be doing what we love.

Happy 36 years to the Lobster Cave and to Bill Ferg.
