Can’t Trust Your Salon Manager?

Is your Salon Manager really helping the business move forward, or are they instead hindering the future success of the Salon?

As the Salon Owner, you already have too many tabs open. 

You’re thinking about a million different things and you have a to-do list that is never-ending. Your role is to lead your business and ensure that it continues to grow, which is why you need a right-hand man, or what we, in this industry, call a Salon Manager. 

When hiring a salon manager, the goal is to find someone to manage the hustle of daily operations in the Salon, and help carry the weight of leading the team, so that you can step away from working IN the business, and instead work more ON the business. 

But this isn’t always as picture-perfect as it seems…can you relate?

Whilst you’d hoped that hiring a Salon Manager was going to be the answer to all your problems, it’s actually ended up being an even bigger headache…

The jobs aren’t getting done, you’re doing more than ever, and you can’t actually trust them to look after the Salon when you aren’t there.

So what is going to give?

I want to introduce Greta Veint, one of our Salon Mastery Success Coaches here at Salon Owners Collective. After leading 17 Salons as a Salon Manager, (and being a total Rockstar working for me during my Salon days), Greta knows what it takes to harness an effective management role within a successful salon, and build a productive working relationship between the Salon CEO & Manager. 

She is the powerhouse behind our Motivating Managers program within Salon Mastery and has all the tips and tricks to help you go from frustration with your management team, to motivate managers to be confident and successful in their role… so that you can step away and the salon can continue to flourish.

If You Want Your Salon Team to Stay, Do This…

So whether you are passionate about your team specialising in one service, or having flexible lifestyle hours, or you value constant education and upskilling for your team; it’s your job to own this vision for your Salon. 

In this episode, I’m bringing in a friend of mine, Wade Brannon to share how you can cultivate a team culture that everyone wants to work for, and no one ever wants to leave.

The 1 Leadership Mistake Every Salon Owner Should Avoid

I’m pretty sure it’s every Salon owner’s worst nightmare… everyone leaving you, and you’re the one left to pick up the pieces.

Honestly, even with a team of 30, I still worried about this at times

So instead I focused on building a salon team culture that was so good, so irreplaceable, that my stylists would never want to leave.

The Salon Lifestyle Effect: “No Saturdays, No Late Nights Say What?!”

Your team is more demanding than ever and you’re worried that if you don’t meet their demands, they’ll leave. But then if you do give in, you’ll end up back on the floor 50+ hours a week… and you’ll be left feeling resentful!

Sure, they can have the lifestyle they want, but does yours have to suffer?! It’s a total double-edged sword!
