Welcome to BACK2MYROOTS B2MR: regular postings of fresh new topic’s
Training Skill Motivation:
Can any of us honestly say we know everything you are on top of your game? fully motivated on a daily bases giving your all? keeping up to date and current?
Or like most of us you have off days or are you having more off days than on? is going to work hard work is being at work real work maybe even to the point of resentment?
If you missing that excitement that creative buzz, passion, drive, motivation, then something is missing what could that be? Time to take a look in the one on one with who you see time!
Well now it’s time to be honest. What ever you work situation environment this might be the Salon. Maybe your self employed. In the case of the salon sometimes its so easy to get wrapped up in the moment to busy, that product training updates falls to the way side.
Your just starting your training stay focused don’t take short cuts ask questions listen learn practice have high standards, Aim to be the best you can never stop learning and challenging your self,
If you self employed taking the time to invest in your self also gets put to the side normally because of time and money issues. If this is the case then we convince our selves that we are doing Ok. We are up date it’s so easy for us to make excuses.The only problem with this is at the end of the day we are hurting our selves and our business we are also and most importantly letting our clients down standards of service drop.
With so many new products constantly coming onto the market it’s so important to be informed and knowledgeable both for your own sake and that of your clients.
Keratin hair relaxing products, new Ammonia free colour lines. This would be classed as product knowledge. Then our skills techniques from colouring to cutting then we have the technical side of the equation the how and why’s sometimes gets neglected finding time just to reconnect with others share idea’s stay informed. Even with the new home use products from foam colours to home straightening kits and relaxers!
Final we have informal seminar’s that are structured to help with salon management, team and staff motivation, Service Consultation and sales.
It is my Opinion that all of the above should be reviewed and although not possible to address all topic’s at once a plan should be drawn up to keep your business you staff healthy and strong call it business and personal inventory or attitude adjustment.
Bad habits form slowly over time but fear not, habits can be broken just takes a willingness change a recognition of habit and indeed skill level finally a little work.
It can take as little as three weeks to break habits and start a journey onto a new path of self discovery talent and skill building sharing.
Stay at the top of you professional be a real master of your craft. Offer the highest standard of Service. Become a specialist in your field take control of your future your career your life.
If you need help I would be happy to talk or work with you or your team.
