When running a business, the need to drive both performance and business often comes with thinking that dangling a carrot or motivating somebody to do something is the way we're going to get there fastest. Yet when you look at human psychology, and you understand what makes people feel both interested and capable of doing something different, it requires that they work hand-in-hand with someone that's going to help them.
Founder of Talent Match, a recruitment and team building agency specialising in the beauty industry workforce, Stefanie Fox is a generational leadership expert whose work is rooted in research. She believes that speaking directly to the beauty industry's workforce is the only way to move forward and build teams that thrive. Therefore, she regularly surveys today's talent to understand what they want and then acts as the liaison between salon owners and salon talent to discuss and navigate hard conversations.
In this episode, we look at the differences between leadership & motivation, dive into Stefanie's recent research on staff's wants and needs, and discuss what responsibilities a great leader has in today's industry & workforce changing landscape.
