Are you willing to put yourself out there even if you might get rejected? Can you trust the process? We’re such a results driven culture that we don’t celebrate when we fall and fail our way forward.
That’s why I love my most recent Lead with Love podcast guest. She’s willing to fail in front of everyone because she believes in her mission so much.
In this episode, I get cozy with my client, internationally acclaimed early childhood education specialist Sally Haughey.
We talk passionately about education, honoring the whole child, and the parallels in how we learn as entrepreneurs.
Sally Haughey is the Founder and CEO of Fairy Dust Teaching and Teaching Mastery Institute, Inc. She co-authored Through a Child’s Eye with a new one on the way called Wonder Art Workshop: Creative Child-Led Experiences for Nurturing Imagination, Curiosity, and a Love of Learning
She offers an online exclusive membership club called “The Wonder Tribe” where Sally shares her signature method, known as Wonder Based Teaching™.
Sally serves, inspires, and educates thousands of teachers worldwide through online courses, master classes and biannual conferences including educators from over 60 countries, sharing content inspired by Reggio Emilia, Montessori, Waldorf and other play based teaching.
