Remember what I keep saying about KISS? Keep It Simple Stupid! For your team, you need to Train them, Retain them and Attract more to join the team. That's all.
For each of these three things, we can work out strategies and activities to have the best staff, the best trained and keep attracting the best. In the picture is our 2013 strategy for our team. This is what we will be doing in 2013. There is nothing complicated, there is nothing difficult to implement, and it is focused on what they love; creativity, acknowledgement and development. And the best part is, our team understands it. Better still, they tell other stylists and clients what is lined up for them this year. They're excited! Everyone's excited!
Does your team know what the year will present? The fear of the unknown is like a disease that can spread through the team and suck the energy out of it. Show them what you are going to do, how you are going to do it, and do it.
