Intercoiffure America Canada Named Section of the YearJuly 26, 2023
Move over, Reese. There’s a new book club in town. At the Intercoiffure America Canada (ICA) Spring Gathering in Las Vegas in April, the first ICA book club was introduced to its members.
The First Pick
Frank and Jana Westerbeke, ICA members and owners of Gadabout SalonSpas in Tucson, Arizona, recommended the first book club choice, The Gap and the Gain: The High Acheivers’ Guide to Happiness, Confidence, and Success.
“The Gap and the Gain reminds us to celebrate the small accomplishments along the way that lead to the larger goal at the finish line,” says Jana. “It’s about living life, celebrating the journey instead of the destination, and then writing your achievements and goals down to remind yourself daily of how amazing you are.”
Sheila Zaricor-Wilson, ICA president, says, “It was a great read, and even better the second time around. It’s full of little nuggets that grab your attention with detailed follow-up on how to take action.”
Investing time in your leadership skills can fall down the priority list when you’re bogged down in the daily grind. ICA’s book club provides an outlet to find inspiration via recommendations from trusted sources.
The second book club pick, Unreasonable Hospitality, was chosen by Helen and Scott Miller, owners of Scott Miller Salon Spa Store in Pittsford, NY.
“The author, Will Guidara, wrote this book about his time owning the restaurant 11 Madison Park in New York City,” says Helen. “It went from number 50 to the number-one restaurant in the world. They attributed their remarkable success to providing unreasonable hospitality.
“This book transformed how we do business today and it definitely is a game changer for any business in the service industry.”
She adds, “Unreasonable Hospitality has been so impactful to our leadership team and our entire staff—we organized a full staff meeting in January based on the book’s principles and business practices. It was truly incredible.”
