Strategies and Team-Based Pay Conference founder Neil Ducoff is on a mission to help salon owners transform company cultures and boost bottom lines through a revolutionary team-based pay business structure.
A beauty industry veteran, Neil has spent the majority of his career as a business consultant and coach to salon and spa managers. For over 25 years, Strategies has been dedicated to helping owners better understand how to lead and grow highly successful companies. By bringing awareness to small business adjustments that have BIG impact over time, Strategies coaching services and live events have helped thousands of beauty business owners transform their team morale, improve client retention, and provide better benefits to staff.
This September 29-30th, join Neil and his Strategies team at their sixth annual Team-Based Pay Conference in Atlanta, Georgia for two days of hands-on learning, refining, and networking with the largest gathering Team-Based Pay salons, spas and med-spas anywhere. “Teaching owners and their employees the basis of what good business is all about, has to be part of what we do. It’s what every salon owner needs. Understanding financial literacy, understanding the numbers, and being transparent with revenue goals are essential first steps to transforming businesses,” Neil shares.
“What we feel makes us different, is that every educator at the event is a Strategies coach. Everyone teaching is either living or teaching the Strategies methods every day. We’re the only company out there with a proven solution and business model for employee-based salons and spas. Team-Based Pay creates the right foundation to build a dynamic business on. When you introduce systems, structure and accountability, beautiful things happen.”
Strategies relies on a business model that’s system driven. Many salons struggle to implement systems and get them to stick. “There has to be structure in the company, leadership, measurement, and critical numbers. Everyone is responsible for that. The company grows, there’s more money available for payroll and income for staff.”
“To hear business owners say, ‘I couldn’t take a paycheck, now I can,’ or ‘we had a lot of debt and today we’re debt free,’ or ‘we never paid benefits, now we have maternity leave and paid vacation,’ is priceless. That’s what Team-Based Pay allows to happen because you can control the elephant in the room, which is payroll.
