Exorcising Ego

“Leave your ego at the door every day and work with your team like you are a member of it,” Terri Taricco, vice president of marketing, Helen of Troy/Hot Tools.

Terri Tarico holds an impressive title, and she got by climbing up the ranks of the beauty industry. Hard work and dedication paid off for her, and that advice at the top is one of the best piece you can get for running a salon. We work in a creative industry with people with big personalities and it can be hard to keep them all in check. If you want your team to work as one, you have to remind them that they are a team. Promoting a distinct culture in your salon is important in this. You set expectations and make sure everyone, yourself included, is living up to them and that ego starts to disappear.

As the leader of your team you, too, have to take the ego out. You may be the owner, but you have a job to do, and if you want them to do theirs don’t stomp around the like boss, that’s leaving the ego in it. You’re in the game, so to speak, with them- and they need to know this. Be present, be engaged, and be authentic with your team. Don’t hide away and bark orders.
