Poor leadership can really affect you personally as a salon owner, not to mention your business. Plus, the happiness and job satisfaction levels of your team, and ultimately, how long they stay with you.
Poor leadership costs time, money, and the mental wellbeing of you and your team.
So what does poor leadership look like?
Poor leadership isn’t just being a tyrant or dictator. It isn't always being overly strict, rigid, and just not that nice.
It can also be...
Just being absent.
Tolerating bad behaviour and not recognising the good.
Being so burned out yourself that you have no capacity to lead.
Not giving your team a clear career path.
It can be not being clear about what you expect, then being disappointed in the outcome.
Failing to provide a safe and secure environment, both physically and mentally.
Making someone a manager, then giving them no direction or support.
