Agility is the ability to be constantly looking for opportunities to move forward toward goals while planning for problems. It’s being able to capitalize on fleeting opportunities, rebound from problems and make decisions on the turn of a dime. That doesn’t happen in skin care facilities where both management and team members are bogged down by burdensome systems, procedures and time-wasting meetings stuck in minutiae. Creating agile meetings is one big step toward creating an agile skin care facility.
