Embrace Spa Leadership Excellence: Thrive as a Confident Leader, Despite Self-Doubt

#leadershiptips #spaleadership May 27, 2023

When it comes to running a spa business, it's not uncommon for owners to lack formal leadership training. In fact, it's the norm! But sometimes, that can leave you feeling unprepared or uncertain when faced with the challenges of managing a spa team and steering your company toward success.

But fear not! Kirsten Foss has your back. Today she dives straight into the world of spa leadership, acknowledging that feeling like a "bad leader" is something many people experience as a spa owner. But she wants you to see it as an opportunity for growth and self-improvement, rather than “just how it is”!

Kirsten encourages spa owners to reflect on their own struggles and challenges when it comes to leading their businesses by emphasizing the power of self-awareness and the value of learning from your experiences. After all, nobody becomes a great leader overnight.

What's important to remember is that there's no shame in admitting that spa leadership has been difficult and that you have room to grow because becoming a skilled leader is something you can learn! It's all about making a conscious choice to seek out mentorship, tap into valuable resources, and invest in your own education.

So, embrace this opportunity to enhance your spa management and leadership skills. You've got what it takes, and with the right guidance, you'll be well on your way to running a thriving spa business.

“Your business is literally the best life coach you could actually ever have. It will reveal the personal areas you’re struggling with, and ask you for another more aligned way forward” - Kirsten Foss

When it comes to embracing change and growing as a leader in the spa industry, it all boils down to one thing: your willingness to learn and adapt. It's a personal choice, but oh, the possibilities it brings!


As spa owners, it's essential to come to terms with our own needs and weaknesses. It's about recognizing those areas where we could use some fine-tuning and deciding whether we want to take that leap towards further training and support. 


It's about deciding if you want to stay the same or unlock your full potential.
