3 Things You Can Right Now To Be A Kick-Ass Leader



1. Uplift Your Team


Employees who feel appreciated will always do more than expected. Uplifting your team will create a positive work environment, boost morale and motivate your employees to go above and beyond. Try any of the following:

  • Compliment your team and magnify strengths
  • Be in-tune with each member’s well-being
  • Take the time to ask simple and thoughtful questions
  • Empower and create confidence


2. Communicate 

Communication goes two ways. If you can’t clearly communicate your vision to your team, you won’t be working toward the same goal. Open discussions with employees are vital to the health of your team. Your employees will learn to trust and depend on you. Here are three easy ways to create an open environment in the salon:

  • Be clear about your goals and vision
  • Be available to listen
  • Host weekly or monthly meetings with your team


3. Lead by Example

As a leader, part of your job is to inspire the people around you to push themselves—and your salon—to greatness. To do this, you must show them the way by doing it yourself. Leading by example requires:

  • A high standard of excellence
  • Delegation and cooperation
  • Resolving conflict quickly and effectively
  • Transparency and honesty
  • Responsibility for words and actions

A few small changes can make a huge difference in how others perceive you. Kick-ass leaders are usually the inspiration behind a powerful team, and Millennium Systems wants to help.
