As different business models emerge, the concept of leadership is becoming more abstract than ever. It is a quality that everyone seems to have, but few can actually demonstrate through their actions. Even as the workplace adapts to this evolution, certain pillars remain to indicate which leaders have the potential to break ahead of the pack.
Best Foot Forward
When it comes to being a leader, compartmentalizing just doesn’t produce the best results. The truth is that we’re all human, and our personal lives translate to our performance in the workplace. The most successful business owners and managers know that success can begin with elementary things like eating right, sleeping well and keeping active. These physiological needs provide the foundation for everything else we do. Keeping your body and mind healthy help you think, focus and stay in a better mood – things that every leader need!
But being a great leader also relies on a multi-dimensional person. Remember the saying “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”? If you don’t have a life outside your salon, it’s easy to get your priorities out of whack and get stuck in a rut. Allow yourself the necessary personal time to enjoy the beautiful and fun parts of your life. It will undoubtedly inspire you to make your business better in unexpected ways.
