30+ years in #Retail…. how things have changed.
👉 If you called an Employee to come in on their day off, they would be there even if there taxi ride made them lose money…and no Uber wasn’t available.
👉 A handshake was the commitment towards getting things done and not having to write a plan.
👉 Letting the #Employee know that their performance is below par, you didn’t have to sugar coat it and got straight to the point.
👉 If something had to be said it was said in the moment and not 2 days later because you had to think of the best way to say it without hurting someones feelings.
👉 There was no sense of individual entitlement but a call to get things done as a Team.
👉 No one left their job incomplete hoping for someone to take it over.
👉 Human Resources was the last resort and not the first as it is today.
👉 No smartphones. Enough said.
👉 Cough, Cough your Boss may have invited you to there office on Friday afternoon to share a shot to get the weekend started…and guess what? No one got hurt.
