2014 Coaches and Consultants Guide: Strategies

Strategies provides salon and spa owners with the systems, knowledge and accountability to transform themselves into the leaders their companies need them to be. The end result is consistent bottom-line growth, a dynamic team-driven culture, and world-class customer service.

WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT: For more than 20 years, Strategies has been providing owners with the thinking, systems and behaviors to become “no compromise” leaders. Yes, we teach how to drive sales, financial literacy, Team-Based Pay, growth systems, etc. — but without a leader who can implement and guide these new systems, the business will remain stagnant. Far too many consulting firms promise busier chairs and increased sales — with little to no insight on how to convert those dollars into bottom-line profit. Strategies teaches owners how to identify and eliminate the inefficiencies that zap salon/spa profit.

HOW WE WORK: Our most popular support package is the Strategies Membership Program, which allows owners to access all of Strategies Coaching, On-site Training, Seminars, and Webinars for one low monthly fee. Now, Wella customers can use their Global Elite points for Strategies services, and save 15% as well.

CATCH US AT: All classes in Centerbrook, CT unless noted: Incubator – Jan. 12-15, Sacramento, CA; Financial Freedom – Feb. 16-17, Austin, TX; Org. Charts & Job Descriptions Workshop – Mar. 2-3; Incubator Graduate – Mar. 30 – Apr. 2; Salon/Spa Manager Course – Apr. 6-8; Communicating w/ Staff – Apr. 27-28; Incubator – May 4-7; Get Found Online – Inbound Marketing – May 18-19, Austin TX; Front Desk/Guest Services - June 22-23; Communicating w/ Staff – July 13-14.

SMART TALK: Want to blow away your competition and create fiercely loyal customers? Then you must do what others will not. It’s one thing to set high standards of performance, but it’s another to achieve and consistently maintain and refine high standards. Too many stop when the going gets tough. That’s accepting “average.”
