Building the Best Learning Center Staff

When you open your LearningRx franchise, it’s important to know that you won’t be responsible for handling every aspect of the operation (even though you might feel like you want to). You put forth the time and energy to start your franchise and open your location, and now it’s time to find the brain trainers and support staff you need to be successful. It’s essential to surround yourself with people who share your vision of helping students improve their cognitive skills, and who can provide a wide variety of skills to make your new franchise run smoothly.

Depending on your background, whether it be in education, business, or another field, there will be things you can do and things you can do well. Discovering what you do best in the context of your brain training center will allow you to focus on those things, while you let your employees handle the other aspects of the operation. If you’re not as well versed in marketing or design, hiring someone who can create and publish ads can help you boost your profile within your town or city. If you’ve always struggled with keeping good numbers, hiring an accountant can help make sure your books are as they should be. This will allow you to focus on what you want to do and what you do best, such as reaching students, connecting with parents, and furthering your vision of improving cognitive skills.

When setting up your new LearningRx franchise, you’ll want to keep an open mind when starting the hiring process. Posting your job opportunities online can land a quality hire, but you’ll also want to network and call upon those you already know to help you find qualified applicants. Depending on the position and skill level, you may be able to find recent college graduates who are looking for an excellent entry-level job. For supervisorial and other positions with more authority and responsibility, it can be beneficial to call upon a wide range of older applicants who have experience in a related field. It’s also important to keep in mind that someone who doesn’t have any experience with brain training or tutoring franchises may bring a unique perspective to your learning center that can make it truly special.

Your main priority will always be the students who come for brain training, but you want to be sure that you’re setting up everyone for success. Being open and honest with applicants about what your expectations are can help set manageable, but challenging goals that will push your staff to make your center stand out in the community. It’s important to be accessible to your staff, and to let them know that you’re always available to answer questions and address concerns. Creating a positive culture within your center will show through to the parents and students who walk through the door.
