Retail Management G.O.L.D. Workshops

Do you think you’d be a good candidate to attend the upcoming Retail Management G.O.L.D. Workshops in Phoenix? Well, you can find out if you wish.

The first step is to answer these three questions.

1.) Are you tired of doing the same things over and over and expecting better results?
2.) Are you trying to figure out what actions are necessary to ensure next year will be a banner year?
3.) Are you ready to get 2012 off to a great start?

If you answered “yes” to one or more of the above, then you may be ready to attend, but please keep reading to find out, for sure, if it would make sense for you to attend; if you qualify, so to speak.

The customer’s experience in your stores and the resulting sales performance…good or bad…is a direct result of what’s going on in the business; a direct result of management abilities, decisions and actions. Unfortunately, the fact that so many customers have bad shopping experiences means…well, it means that many retailers need to pick things up a notch because a bad shopping experience is just the tip of the iceberg!

Frankly, consultants and retail management experts are somewhat puzzled as to why it is taking so long for the retail sector, more specifically, the management personnel operating in it, to identify the critical issues and take action. What is going on in some of those boardrooms, anyway?

Some just keep going along the same path, ignoring all of the signs until they’re forced to turn the lights out. Some just continue to throw good money after bad at things that ‘might’ be causing problems…at things that ‘might’ be the cause of unsatisfactory financial results… rather than address the things that ‘are most definitely’ causing the problems.

In our many years of experience, we find that there are quite a few retail management individuals who think they already know everything there is to know about the retail business. If that were true, we wouldn’t be seeing the problems that we see today. And the problems are nothing as simple as poor customer service or messy stores, etc.

No, when sales and profits are not what they should be, there are problems that run much deeper than that.

So, perhaps, many of the retail manager’s know the mechanics…but that’s just not enough.You have to admit that warrants some consideration.

We really hate to say this but it’s no secret that there are plenty of customers who are not that happy about going shopping in stores anymore. That’s one of the reasons on-line retailers are gaining a competitive advantage.

The reason we bring this up is to point out that there is evidence that there are still many things that retail management individuals need to do better – like manage for performance, lead people to create a loyal following, operate with integrity and principles, build and maintain a performance culture.

If this was all being done properly, most of the issues would simply disappear.

Some might say the retail industry is in a bit of a mess! Well, maybe, but it’s certainly not all doom and gloom. There is so much to be done!

If, after reading this, you think that you would qualify, join DMSRetail’s retail management experts for the Retail Management G.O.L.D. Workshops in Phoenix in January 2012 and find out just what it’s going to take to prosper in the future of retail. Hint…it’s way more than technology!

The future is bright – despite what’s going on – because there is so much opportunity for those willing to embrace it by attending the Retail Management G.O.L.D. Workshops.
