Non-Desk Matters: #TEAMworks Recap & Retail Therapy

TEAMworks Recap & Retail Therapy

2017 is a wrap, and we spent December reflecting on our #TEAMworks series. While you look back at what you have learned these past 12 months, we hope you are setting goals for building an effective team in the new year. Here’s a quick recap of our #TEAMworks series to jog your memory and help with planning:

#TEAMworks: Talk, Equip, Acknowledge, Measure

Talk – #TEAMworks begins with conversations (‘talk with’) vs commands (‘tell to’). Talking with employees leads to better engagement and retention.

Equip – #TEAMworks is the way to equip your team to win in a competitive business marketplace. The right equipment gives you the ABILITY to do your job and PROVES if you’re good at it.

Acknowledge – #TEAMworks is a philosophy that great teams deserve trophies. Recognize and reward the great work that is being accomplished.

Measure – #TEAMworks is not afraid to be measured to achieve peak performance. You can’t improve what you don’t measure.

Finally, as the end of the year is a season filled with holiday parties, gift exchanges, and shopping madness, we wanted to shine a spotlight on the retail space from the perspective of a non-desk workforce. If you’ve ever worked in retail, these articles will be therapeutic for you. If not, you’ll benefit from gaining insight into some of the most challenging non-desk jobs during the holiday season.
