How to Ensure Your Team Gets Along

In any workplace, one of the biggest challenges is figuring out the way a load of different personalities will work together. 

And in the Hair & Beauty Industry, where there can often be something like 20 people crammed in a small space at any given moment… this challenge is even more prominent. 

It’s like a pressure cooker!

One of the struggles I see most often faced by Salon Owners is dealing with team dynamics. It could be that their team aren’t getting along, or maybe they aren’t getting along with their team.

Today I want you to meet BJ Gallagher Hateley. BJ is an expert on the way different personalities intersect- and her “Birds of a Different Feather” shaped my Salon Owning experience, by helping my team learn how to get along like a well-oiled machine and explaining the reason for clashing personalities.
