We’re now on the 6th of the Seven Common Mistakes Salon Owners Make and I hope the past five blogs have been helpful to you and your salon team. Which brings us to…
Common mistake #6 : NOT SHARING YOUR SYSTEMS WITH YOUR TEAM
Everybody has their own systems they use on a daily basis. Starting with something like putting out your clothes in the morning that you’re going to wear, to making your packed lunch the night before so you won’t be rushing around in the morning.
A system is just a particular way that you do things. Now, the trouble with that is, more often than not, only you know how that system should work. You probably have many systems in place at your salon that only you know about and are just part of your daily routine.
Which is why if you take a day off or go off to a meeting leaving your team to run things for you, you will always come back to find some stuff hasn’t been done or it’s been done wrong.
But before you get your knickers in a bunch, you need to realise that your team aren’t mind-readers! If you have certain ways you like things done in your salon, you have to share that with them and show them how it’s done.
We know that people in our industry are visual. And so, if you had things that were easy for them to understand, it would be just great.
Systems will set you free. It’s really, really exciting to see your salon working exactly how you want it, whether you are there to oversee it… or not.
