Do you have a studio policy? Are you having a hard time sticking to it? Are you a people pleaser?
In this course we will go through why a studio policy is important to have in your studio, steps on creating not only one that is relevant to your studio but something you will be able to stick with. I will give you specific examples that will help inspire some ideas for your policy.
Having a studio policy is just the first step towards a professional studio. Because of this, I wanted to go much deeper with this course. I go through how to understand and resolve conflicts and confrontations when policy matters come up. You will learn how to be creative with thinking through solutions that will become win-wins for both teacher and parent.
It isn't always easy to stick with what you have written down. Learn tips and tricks on how to resolve conflicts and confrontations with families that like to “test” your policies or think they may be the exception.
Do you have a hard time saying "no" even though that is what you want to say? Or perhaps you just want to stop feeling guilty for saying no because you know what you are doing is the right thing. I help you with tips and tricks on that too!
In addition, I give you some sweet bonuses! Do you have problems with some families not paying on time? One of the bonuses is another video module where I share tips on getting paid on time.
Ever wish you had a script that you can refer to when a parent asks to make an exception to your policy? In this course, I added solutions to common problems that include actual scripts you can use! Over 30 different scenarios you might get asked about!

"One thing Jennifer offers in her program that I have not seen anyone else in piano-teacher-world discuss is understanding and resolving conflict and different styles of conflict. The content is well organized, clear, simply presented, and thorough. If you are someone who is looking to develop studio policies from scratch or even if you need to do an overhaul of your old policies, I would definitely recommend this program!"

"I recently had the privilege of checking out Jennifer Foxx's course on creating a studio policy and have to say that it is excellent and full of valuable information! It's quite comprehensive and includes everything from what should be included in your policy to how to stick to it and enforce your policy if needed. She even includes bonus material including worksheets, a sample policy, conflict resolution ideas and even tips on getting paid! Definitely a value for the money it will save you if you need to create or update your policy. If you haven't had a chance to check it out, I highly recommend you do!"
