As a spa owner or manager, you have a unique opportunity to help your team members reach their full professional potential, and enjoy a successful and rewarding career as they chug along on the career train. By discussing your team members’ professional goals and integrating them into their work, you are adding value to their overall employment experience.
Start the conversation
Have one-on-one conversations with your team members that include the following three questions in order to foster an environment that welcomes personal growth and professional development.
- What are your dreams?
- What are your goals?
- What do you want out of your career?
These questions open the doors to deeper, more meaningful conversations about personal goals and workplace satisfaction. They also offer insight about how you, as a leader, can help your team reach their personal and professional goals. During your initial conversation with employees, be sure to take notes on the details they mention. Also ask questions such as: Is your current position helping you get to where you want to go? Is there any way that we could better assist you in reaching your career goals?
