Most managers do not make it to multi-site management because there is a lack of training for this level in the retail ecosystem, you are lucky if you work for someone that develops your skills by giving stretch assignments and delegates specific tasks to get you ready for a District Manager position.

However, even when this happens it’s a huge learning curve and one that can be lessened with the right training.

This program is a full training program for managers that want to become field leaders and for those that are already in the role and are looking to improve their skills.

  • How to have purposeful store visits
  • How to craft a clear email message to your teams

  • How to hold meaningful touch bases
  • How to positively collaborate with your HO partners 
  • How to make timely decisions especially when it comes to talent

I am finding that it is a very good refresher for those of us that have been in the industry for years, as well as a great for teaching us new skills that work in the more modern retail age. It is filled with wonderful tips and tricks very informative, while being easy to digest and understand. For someone new to the role or a manager in training for a future position, these lessons are invaluable. It is a very clear and helpful training tool. I wish I had a resource like this when I began my career as District Manager. The videos are clear, concise and debunk some theories of how we think we should handle a situation as well as give excellent tips on time management and executing effective and efficient store visits.

retailu courses have been very informative and beneficial to help keep me focused and prepared during store visits. The tips are great for helping me be a better communicator with our colleagues in head office and within the stores. Also helping me be more present and aware in stores by making admin time rather than checking emails constantly throughout a visit”.

retailu is a great tool that delivers important information without taking lots of time to complete. All our management could definitely benefit from the lessons on here. I have been able to identify quite a few areas for improvement in myself just from this recourse making me more aware of how I approach certain situations. LOVE IT
