How do I initiate my slides quicker? I feel like I'm just turning, then lose traction in the turn, so then I just 180. Help me!

refrain from grabbing your board. instead hold it up high like you're giving a high five. strighten your shoulder facing to which direction you want your board to go

more speed, kick out more with your back foot, don't grab the board, put wait on front foot basically what everyone else has said

But more than anything just practice. Your body will get used to it and it becomes easier.

A combination of what a lot of people have already said. More speed, not hands, and practice. My piece of advice would be this, sometimes it's a little easier to initiate a slide if you first quickly carve in the other direction. So if you are going for a heelside slide, first carve quickly on the toeside and then try to initiate the slide.
