We are here to show you how to have the confidence to talk in any work or social environment, whether it`s colleagues in the salon, fellow students, in a business situation, at a wedding reception or perhaps birthday party.

Seminar 3: ‘EMBRACE THE CHANGE’- How to Open Your Mind 

Embrace the Change Seminar

 

Cost: Full Day - £291.00+ VAT (£20.00 PER MONTH)

 We are all guilty of getting into bad habits and doing the same thing over and over again. Taking the safe option that always works.

We can slip into the ”We don’t have to put ourselves under too much pressure to get a decent result“ kind of thinking. Or the ”Same as last time is it?” ways, that lead to bad habits and dare we say it, boredom.

That is the all too often way to lose creativity, and that`s just not fun.

By increasing your awareness of you, and what and who is around you, you will see how to fully express yourself. You will then ‘embrace the change’ and fully enjoy being a hairdresser again. Oh and you`ll feel better, be more productive, and be much happier too.

What we cover in this seminar will;

  • Make you aware of the pitfalls that can easily get in the way of creativity
  • Provide confidence in Self Expression / Self Image
  • Bring back the confidence in your artistic skills
  • Change your view to creativity
  • Increase your energy motivation
  • Make you more positive, a leader by example, and a happier person
