Are you always saying “I do NOT have enough time to do everything that needs to be done" or “I feel OVERWHELMED” or “I can’t seem to PRIORITIZE”? Do these challenges sound familiar to you? If so, you need to identify where you are spending your time and what role is everyone playing.
Try this for a one week period, make note of every task you do – whether you are in meetings, training, interviewing, marketing, etc. Any time you do something, write it down or capture it on an electronic list. You are going to be amazed…try it!
Whether your position is Spa Director, Spa Manager, or Spa Owner, you need to be clear about the importance of your role and everyone else’s role.
Do you have clear and detailed position descriptions
for each role within the spa? If not, you need to have them and make sure everyone knows exactly what their responsibilities are; yes, including you!
Here are some quick tips to help you manage your time better:
Close your door. Stop practicing the open door management method.
