1). Let's be a little practical here. Let us say you have a beauty salon and you have clients that you have booked for the day. You have set up appointments and at 9am your first appointment arrives. The employee you assigned and that the customer only wants that employee to attend to her for the day, has not come in as yet,. No calls from the employee.
2). The other employee who has arrived at 9am for her 10:00 am appointment. She has to then rush out to get her breakfast at the nearby coffee shop. She arrives 9:30am and starts to prepare for her 10am. She forgot to get something from the coffee shop and so she goes back - there is a delay and she returns at 10:15 and meets her client waiting for her and very upset.
3). Oh, by the way, there is another competitive beauty salon right up the street from yours and they are a new in the area and seems to be just waiting for your dissatisfied customer.
4). What would you say - is that the kind of employee you would tolerate in your company?
5). Your answer should give you a hint as to your question. Would you agree? Kind Regards
Having strong work ethic and time management are some of the skills you need to have in order to be a good stylist. Since you’ll be working on clients it’s a must to come to work 15mins before your first client. Providing different services will required you to time manage or you’ll run over time and you’ll be late for your next client.
Having those qualities are a must in this industry. You’ll also need strong interpersonal skills, communicate well, and practical skills.
