No Time To Stand And Stare


I completely agree that too many retailers look at the day to day and do not spend enough time on the big picture and the strategy and how the staff could help them achieve their goals. I like asking boutique owners the 3 following questions: Do you have a strategy? Is it in writing? ( often not and this is a mistake ) If I pick an employee and ask him/her what the strategy is, will his/her answer match yours? Often not. At Management One, we ensure you have a strategy and that the employees buy your vision of the business. The staff will become owners of the business not renters just picking up the monthly cheque. Investing in your people will bring out hidden talents and the right management process will get them to accomplish new, exciting and meaningful goals. This will enhance the impact on customers and your bottom line. Revisiting the way you handle issues affecting your business will mean your staff will handle professionally most urgent issues which are certainly today handled by you. As the owner, you must spend more time in important issues ( the strategy, growing the business, new investments...). Feel free to call/ attend one of our free seminars on Winning@Business to help independent retailers. If you do not act today, your competitors will and they will overtake you. Have a great season.
