Professional Retail Multiple Store Supervision Course Manual


Building a highly accountable, high-performance retail chain

Does running one store, no matter how well, adequately prepare you for looking after 10 or more stores? Spoiler alert: It doesn’t! Although growth tends to be an expected outcome of success, for many retail organizations that growth can be stunted or even stopped by the unique challenges of managing multiple store locations. Even area supervisors, who have done an outstanding job as single-store managers can find themselves pulled in a variety of directions, handing crisis after crisis, with very little time for achieving their goals.

This course is designed to help clarify the role and ultimate goal of an area supervisor while providing many of the tools needed to succeed and thrive.

The Multiple Store Supervision course clearly identifies the role of an area supervisor while giving owners, area supervisors and district managers a system for running multiple locations and getting everyone producing at higher levels. During the course, you’ll discover that hitting sales goals as an area, district or company is reliant on your grass-root efforts to build stores individually, project sales goals, notice trends, and create a “model store” that demonstrates how to effectively staff your stores and stop settling for “average” employees.

Find out how to go from continually putting out daily fires to eliminating noncompliance and building better store managers. Discover how assessment tools are used to develop a strategic and tactical plan that addressed the issues likely to have the biggest impact on your area. Learn the importance of championing a cause to rally people around you. Explore the importance of effective communication in gaining and maintaining compliance. Identify the time management strategies that may work best for you!
