Needs for Leadership for Hybrid Salon Professionals
When asked about the type of leadership experienced hybrid salon pros want, this is the overall data that was provided.
Although hybrid pros indicate a need for support in building a client base, the desire for strong leadership isn’t as great.
While very few, (less than 10%) of our hybrid job seekers told us they want less management, the vast majority seeks some leadership.
This may be due to a history of working in a salon, spa or barbershop with poor leaders. Not-so-great leadership in salons may have scared these pros into thinking leadership means something negative.
Striking a balance in management of a salon can be particularly challenging in a hybrid business model.
