Retail Supervisor Development Program - RSDP


Retail Supervisor Development Program - RSDP


More often, supervisors are formerly retail associates that excel in discharging technical competencies in the discharge of their duties. However, the skills set requirements for retail associates and supervisors are different. It is this skill gap that has become the nightmare of most retail organizations.

Hear the lamentation of one retailer: I promoted him to supervisor because he was my best sales staff. But it appears I made a mistake”. This retailer is absolutely correct as he is responsible for the new lack of performance status of the associate turned supervisor.

For the retail organization seeking to provide the highest level of service to each customer in a manner that is consistent with the overall sales performance and profitability objectives and expectations, it must rethink the critical role of the supervisor.

For Retail Supervisors to effectively discharge their duties they need to first horn their managerial and leadership skills.

This is a responsibility the retailer must not leave to chance.
