I highly recommend Samantha Stading. As the Product and Education Manager for a franchise salon chain, I had the privilege of working closely with Samantha for over a year. She possessed a high level of education, coaching and management skills. Samantha was a true demonstration of a team leader. Her dedication to meet goals and quotas was unmatched. We worked together on many aspects, one of them was training and educating the staff on products and product merchandising. Samantha was able to connect with the staff in an efficient manner finding their strengths and implementing a training system that worked to achieve the highest results. When working with her she was a very effective communicator, honest and fair, and set out clear expectations. Samantha recognized high performers and provided them with further growth opportunities. For those who performed under goal in product sales Samantha developed an action plan to help them meet their goals while helping them improve their over all skills. I believe that Samantha possesses the leadership, products knowledge, sales and marketing and overall business expertise to lead a team to the next level.
