David Barnett on Inspired Leadership and Shaping the Dream Workplace (Rerun)

Phorest FM

[239] Phorest Growth Fund applications for 2022 are now open! We decided to offer two episode reruns for the occasion, the first one being a conversation from 2018 with business coach, CEO of High Performance Stylist and now Phorest Growth Fund panellist David Barnett. Managing a salon isn’t always the easiest thing to do, but salons and spas that find real success within the industry are the ones that run and function with clear confidence, commitment and communication. What if, like David proposes, “instead of marketing to new clients, we were able to build a business and become famous for being the best place to work? And marketing to the best stylists in your area. Because let’s face it, if you’ve got the best stylists in your area working for you, or they’re knocking on your door wanting jobs, and they’re fully booked, then your job is done. You have a highly successful business.” As you listen to this classic from Season 2, consider this: how do you think about yourself as a leader, and where is there room for growth?
