  • My 2 Favorite Questions to Ask as a Leader

    Two great questions I ask myself all the time are what did you love? And what did you learn? I ask this of myself all the time. I ask this question of my leadership team at the salon. I ask this every month of every single team member when I’m doing professional development meetings for each team member. I ask this question of my children who are currently 6 and 9 years old, but I have been asking this question of both of them since they were under three years old. It is absolutely adorable the things they come up with. Then other times they share a struggle they had in their day but they focus on what they learned. Sometimes I wonder if I would ever even know those interesting details about their day. If I didn’t ask the right questions.
