In retail business, you don’t have to be the best boss. Instead, try to be a role model to your employees. Make them see that you work non-stop, you care for them, give them compliments, take time to walk around your store, and remember to always – smile and nod.
Organizing and training your employees by giving them the best information, tips and the best guidelines as possible may not be enough. But it’s how you handle them that makes them love their work. Value their services by leading their way. Learn to interact with customers too and teach them the way to properly cope up and handle people around.
Take time to do a short meeting right before you open up or close the store. Remember to always motivate. If possible, do a rotational employee shift to help others who are at need for work and salary. The more people you help, the more your employees will learn to love their job, and perhaps, maybe you. Learn to memorize names, from your right hand to the least employee you have.
