Would You Let Someone Take Over Your Business?

Every week on Tabatha's Salon Takeover, hairstylist extraordinaire Tabatha Coffey takes control of a flailing salon and whips it into shape. Although I'm an avid viewer, I'm not quite so sure how I would react to real-life Tabatha in my work space — taking total control of my company's policies and the people I work with.

Some of the highlights include a full-out interior design makeover of the salon studio, and a complete revamping of lackadaisical company policies. Frustrated employees get to voice their opinion on their boss's behavior, and likewise, bosses are asked to carefully re-evaluate employees whose bad attitudes might be jeopardizing company teamwork. At the end of day, Tabatha makes a series of recommendations and advises the business owner on employees whose positions need shifting, or those who should be let go.

The benefits of having an expert like Tabatha put your business on track are clear, but having an outsider manage your business — especially if she has Tabatha's strong personality — could be a major deterrent from this kind of business makeover. So, tell me, would you be willing to let someone take over your office to put a savvy business plan in place? Or would you be skeptical of any outsider, even an expert, changing things around?
