Conferences. Allow team members to attend conferences or seminars within a designated specialty, such as esthetics or esthetic medicine. Consider holding sales contests to cover their cost of travel and registration, so that you’re rewarding your high-achievers.

Language skills. Encourage your team members to learn a second language. Language preference should be based upon your particular client demographic.
