One of the favorite parts of my job is getting the chance to visit with other salon owners and small business owners. We typically share stories about our lives and businesses, which often leads to discussions about frustrations with our operations. (What? You mean it’s not all sunshine and roses?). The chief complaint I hear from tanning salon owners concerns their staff. This always leaves me scratching my head a little, because there are three or four things that would be much higher on my “ugh” list than our team would be.
One of the chief disconnects between salon owner/management and staff is often that managers don’t know how to motivate people.
