What Is Leadership?

By Wendy White-McCown

What is Leadership?

Leadership is Influence. Everything rises and falls on leadership. Your staff needs to have faith in the people at the top in order to keep the salon's morale high.  In today's salon world we know we have to be wise leaders and promote change within our salon when need be. As leaders, we must create an atmosphere that promotes change. 

Here are 3 key factors to keep in mind when leading your salon.

1. You have to love them before you can lead them.

2. Determine you 20% producers and spend 80% of your time with them.

3. Have integrity. Integrity is what we really are, image is what people think we are.

People are our greatest resource! Encourage the many, mentor the few. When we pour into others and help them become successful, they will in turn help develop others. When this "People Development" happens, your team will be unstoppable.
