Retail, undoubtedly has had a tough year, bushfires along with Covid 19 have caused major disruptions. With a large number of stores closing during the peak of the pandemic and people asked to stay at home, sales have dropped dramatically. However, with restrictions being lifted in most states and stores now reopened, although we don’t know for how long, customers are starting to return to shopping in store.

In my particular area of expertise, I focus on the people side of the business. Great retailers have amazing people from the top down and especially at store level where the everyday interaction with customers takes place. I don’t have to remind you how competitive retail has become and now even more so as customers have become a lot more used to purchasing online.

The people side of retail is a topic I’m very passionate about and one I have been working with retailers to help them improve for the last 25 years – there’s still a lot of work to do!

So to help retailers get back in the groove, I’m running a series of short, sharp and snappy informational zoom meetings focussing on what retailers need to do to stay in the game.

Here’s some more details of what I’ll be covering in around 30 minutes:

“Why training has to be followed up on the job.”

  • Why training on its own is a waste of time
    – Training is not a silver bullet, it takes management support to be effective
  • What are the critical components of follow up
    – Our 5 step process to successful coaching on the job
“How to provide effective feedback that works”

  • Our simple two step process that works on the job
    – In busy retail environments, feedback has to be concise yet effective. I’ll show you how to do just that.
  • Tips on avoiding push back and team members becoming defensive
    – For feedback to work the team member has to feel ok during the process. I’ll share with you what to say and what to avoid.
