Transform Your Business With Coaching

Inspiring Champions Coaching & Training Programs Offer Customized Solutions For Every Business

San Diego, CA As coach Vince Lombardi said, “We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible.” With the help of professional coaching, you can learn exactly what is possible to accomplish in your business and more importantly – how to do it! You can truly transform your business with the help of one-on-one business coaching, group coaching or an onsite training program. Inspiring Champions is a business training and coaching company working in the professional salon and beauty industry. Founded by Lauren Gartland-Roberts, Inspiring Champions has a team of coaches who have worked with thousands of beauty professionals over the years to literally transform their businesses and their lives.

Team coaching is offered for groups who work together in a salon or spa; individual coaching is offered for solo technicians or owners; partner coaching is offered for co-owners of a business, and the Inspiring Champions Soaring Eagles program is offered for individuals who want to participate in group coaching. One-on-one individualized coaching for salon and day spa owners is their most common program. Debra Hanson, a former salon owner and service provider, worked in the industry for 28 years before becoming a certified business coach. “It is common for our clients to be service providers who have become owners,” she relays. “They may not have had a lot of education or experience in business training. There are many common challenges we consistently see, including the need to analyze compensation structures, to review their team members, to retool their salon and spa systems and to become successful leaders for their teams.”

A typical coaching series will begin with some financial basics. With a coach’s help, owners identify challenges as well as growth areas and then work to create a plan. Cash flow is always analyzed first, as well as the compensation plan. Coaches look at whether an owner needs to recruit new team members, or restructure existing ones. Coach Oscar Valencia, Jr. notes, “Business acumen accounts for 85% of the success a salon or spa will achieve, while technical ability will only account for 15%. Professionals working in this industry tend to have an artistic, creative mindset and very often their business education is lacking. We find they tend to make business decisions based on emotion rather than facts.” Coaches help guide owners into becoming good decision makers, putting systems in place to grow their businesses, becoming good leaders and taking on the ownership of their operation. Often this type of individual coaching will also include some confidence building for owners who are feeling overwhelmed. They are usually wearing many hats – that of an owner, manager and often still a service provider. Coaching helps empower and support them so that they can better manage themselves.

While many of the coaching methodologies remain constant for every business, Inspiring Champions coaching programs are tailored specifically for the individual clients. As every business has its own culture, with its own value set and distinctive way of operating, a customized plan has to consider these specific elements. Coach Lance Courtney says, “By thoroughly identifying the culture of the salon or spa and creating open communication for all the team members, we discover the roadblocks the business is encountering and work to resolve and remove them.” Those roadblocks can include everything from common challenges like implementing salon systems on retailing, booking appointments, front desk operation and customer service to communication skills and interpersonal problems within the business. “The difference between having a customized session for your team vs. attending a large seminar is that our training is created for the needs, wants and culture of YOUR business. Team members work together to improve the business, while creating their own work culture that they will feel ownership and pride in. The idea isn’t necessarily to compromise, but rather to synergize,” concludes Courtney.

There is a reason why Olympic athletes have coaches. Coaches help you think and dream bigger! The difference between good and great performance is hard work and consistency. Inspiring Champions founder Lauren Gartland-Roberts cheers, “Good never got anyone to the Olympics. Being passive will not bring you the dream business that you want. Get out of the bleachers and onto the playing field with the champions!” Transform your business today with the help of a great business coach!
