Area Leaders are busy, overwhelmingly so, and have the added frustration of knowing they are probably not working on the right things and getting the revenue or results that their hard work should reflect.
Does this sound familiar? Is the feedback you hear from your Area Leaders that-
- There are days when they feel as though they are rushing from store to store, juggling competing priorities, trying to meet all the needs of their stores
- They have a constant struggle to manage staff costs while working hard to achieve sales targets
- They consistently find it difficult to locate experienced candidates to fill Store Manager roles
- Their HR teams are stretched, trying to manage the growing number of “people issues” that really should be the responsibility of Area Leaders
As support staff are reduced and training budgets squeezed, Area Leaders need to shoulder more responsibility than ever before while under pressure to achieve their expected budgets.
The truth is that Area Leaders are working longer hours than they should to keep everything on track, causing burnout and resulting in an unnecessary and costly turnover of Area Leaders.
It’s time for Area Leaders to access the tool kit, strategies, and support they need to set them up for success.
