Respect trust vision in the salon

 Respect Trust vision: “RTV”

Respect:

Respect trust vision are they part of your core salon values. Do you respect your staff ? Do they respect you? Without respect it can be so very hard if not impossible to have a salon running smoothly a salon that runs without and hitches and is harmonious with a good team spirt.

How does one gain and retain respect in the work place? First and foremost it’s a two way street other wise known as mutual respect.  How does it work? It’s earned over time by actions, commitment, sharing of a vision.

By being a forward thinker leading by example, making positive change happen. Being inspirational to those around you. Being inspired by those around you. Being a listener. None of this happens over night it takes time to develop.

It can not be brought and yet it is invaluable. Respect encourages those around you to listen and or take action to embrace change. Lack of respect can and is very disruptive it creates many issues especially in a leadership or management situation. Once lost it’s very hard to regain.

In the salon or spa environment respect for each other open communication collaboration will enable the salon to function without distraction, without the dysfunction that can be created when respect is lost and chaos or majority rule mentally creeps in, this can take shape in many forms from staffing issues and poor management decisions, general morale.

An openness with regard to salon /spa running sharing the big picture, share your vision have a willingness to listen, on occasion changes need to be made new policy implemented, taking action like these  all contribute to being a respected leader, never forgetting you also must give and show respect to those around you.

Ultimately this contributes to better salon management a better working environment and so creating an atmosphere that works to the benefit of all concerned. Clients can and do pick up on this. Having a strategy for ongoing success is key working towards your goals and your vision staying focused but open minded enough to adapt to change and the challenges that it can present is also very important.

 Trust:  Our clients trust us!

Closely and many might say running side by side with “Respect” is ‘Trust’ this we build. Without trust it’s really is very hard to function and get anything done. To not be trusted or have trust in some one or some thing creates negativity it will slowly bring you or your business down. If this is an issue you really do need to spend some time think it through. If it’s a person a team mate employee ask the question. Why Don’t you trust them?. Can it be addressed, is it a situation that can be fixed. If not before making that tuff decisions seek advise from those around you, those you respect! If it’s a thing then it’s much easier however good it might be if it’s not working for you and you cannot get past trusting it get rid of it! Don’t waste time and energy on things that don’t warrant it.

Without Trust in a salon between every member of the team decent can rapidly creep in negative energy can be and is so destructive. If this is the case council those team members work mates managers that you respect and make decisions on how to address and deal with any situation that might arise. Don’t be hasty consider the situation what created it. Decide on an informed course of action. Surround your self with others that share your vision and have your values.

 Vision:

Finally that “Vision” this is yours. In this case it’s of your business but it can relate to any aspect of your life for each and very one should have a vision. In this instance we are relating it to work. Once you have clear vision share it with those around you. Those you Respect and trust make sure they share this vision with you so that you are all working toward the same goal.

By sharing your vision with team members you are not only sharing your vision for the future you are also showing that you respect and trust them. There is a synergy between the three words. That synergy comes to fruition when put into action. When action starts to happen, things start to change, they start to progress. As this happens embark on constructive dialogue with team mates and staff members collaborate encourage  new thoughts and ideas innovative idea’s that might help your vision become a reality for all those sharing it with you.

I also think that we need to always look at the Why. Ask the question Why are we in business whats it for? OrWhy do we want to go into to business what is success? Why do I suggest this I think by asking and exploring the why we get to the motive behind why we want to be in business what is true success. Why the will also help us to understand our true values this in turn helps us to follow the path to the success we want  and desire. It will help us to surround ourselves with the right team those who share our values and vision.
