Does Your School Have a Be Nice Or Else Team?by Paul Mitchell Schools on 2/29/2008
For several years, Paul Mitchell school owner Tina Black has had Be Nice Or Else Teams at her two Michigan-based schools. After helping Future Professional Erika Kunzler form a Be Nice Or Else Team at the Scot Lewis Paul Mitchell Partner School in Boise, Idaho, Tina recognized the need for every school to have a team. "It's as critical as having a Take Home Team, Design Team, or Student Council," she says. "It's what we are all about."
Using her allocated funds from the Andrew Gomez Dream Foundation, Tina sent two Future Professionals to the Carolina Academy - A Paul Mitchell Partner School to help them establish a team. "They were treated like rock stars and they signed up 42 Future Professionals," Tina says. "I'm sending four Future Professionals to Illinois next week and I have plans to set up teams in New York, California, and anywhere else that wants to have some magic. I hope that if I train schools, they in turn can train additional schools in a 'pay it forward' manner."
John Paul Mitchell Systems CEO John Paul DeJoria often says, "We believe that 70% of all working adults between the ages of 18 and 50 years old go to a hairdresser on average of once every three months, which means that hairdressers touch 70% of society. If every hairdresser adopted this philosophy, we could change the world."
All cosmetology schools are invited to start a Be Nice Or Else Team and participate in national monthly conference calls led by Erika Kunzler. "The conference calls create synergy among the schools by uniting them under one national Be Nice Or Else Team," Erika explains. "As we teach the concept of BE NICE to those in our schools and in turn to our customers, we will indeed make a mark on the world. There is so much good to be done, and so many good people in our schools to do it."
