5 Toughest Personalities at Work and How to Manage Them

5 Toughest Personalities at Work and How to Manage Them | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

Running a business would be easy if only you didn't have to manage people. The bigger your company grows, the smaller the likelihood that everyone in it will be easy to supervise. As the boss you always (or almost always) have the option to terminate anyone who is truly a drag on your company. But good talent is hard to find, so before you go down that road, it's worth the effort to try and make a difficult person work more effectively within your company.

 

When faced with a problem personality, most of us do one of two things: We either confront the person head-on, leading to escalating hostility, or else avoid dealing with him or her and leave the problem to worsen. Neither is an effective solution, and as your company's leader, neither is an option.

How Brick-and-Mortar Stores Are Becoming More Like Online Retailers

How Brick-and-Mortar Stores Are Becoming More Like Online Retailers | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

Between the confluence of the Web and e-commerce and the rise in hours at work for U.S. workers, brick-and-mortar visits are becoming worryingly infrequent. Online shopping is rapidly overtaking high-street sales with the U.S. Department of Commerce spotting a 3.4% quarterly pickup in e-commerce sales compared to 0.6% for brick-and-mortar retailers during the fourth quarter of 2013.

 

However, thanks to modern technology, traditional retailers now have a chance to fight back. Strategy consulting firm Control Group put together a thorough report examining several emerging trends in retail technology. Especially, state-of-the-art technologies that make dynamic pricing for brick-and-mortar retailers could indeed enable them to turn the tide in the battle of clicks versus bricks....

Francey Smith's curator insight, October 19, 2014 5:01 PM

My focus and experience is non-food retailing. Today's customer for retail is already purchasing from many channels under the same name plate. She (and he) have been aware of multi-channels for several years and will continue to do so for the future near and beyond. Don't fool yourself into thinking that the "multi channel" customer is a fad!


The smart retailer today follows their customer (hopefully by name, address both postal and email, at a SKU level and then trends this robust customer data over time) on all channels.
