Analogy of the Omelette!

The Omelette philosophy is fundamentally about utilising standardisation to unlock creativity.

In Lee’s own words:

Imagine you wanted to go to college to become a chef, and one of the standard recipes you have to cook is an omelette.

An issue with the current system is that the majority of college tutors up and down the country all have a very different omelette recipe that they teach to the students.

In my 20 year career of going up and down the country, coaching trainers in colleges, I have seen young people being shown hundreds of ways of how to cook an omelette. Some were not very good and the students were confused! No wonder young people were struggling to get jobs in omelette restaurants when they left college!

I'm not saying that's because the college trainers weren't good hairdressers; the problem was they were all following a different recipe and formula, even between tutors within the same college. No-­one had given the college trainers the necessary time and training so they could all sing from the same hymn sheet. But imagine if all the trainers were working on the same recipe, all helping one another to produce the same, quick, simple, Michelin 3-star recipe.

At Lee Stafford Education we don't want to share with you 100s of ways to cook a mediocre omelette; we just want to share with you one Michelin starred way to cook an omelette -­ EVERY time.

Because once you can do that, it doesn’t take much to add to the recipe to be able to cook 100's of different Michelin starred omelettes.

So the rules at Lee Stafford Education are simple; follow the rules of the recipe until you hit a “Michelin starred” result.

Once you do that, and you are technically sound, then knock yourself out creatively and break every rule in the book.

We believe that when top class technique becomes second nature, then our creativity can truly run free.

We call this “Standardised Creativity
