You've probably been training as an assistant 
retail store manager, so are well aware of
the misconceptions of the store manager's duties.
We don’t need to tell you it’s more than being in charge of the store and keeping customers happy.
Your  role will involve being in charge of just the store’s sales, keeping an eye on stock levels, reordering supplies and managing and motivating your staff .
 You’ll also need to set an example to your employees and stick to company policies . It's a lot of work being a retail store manager but it's worth it.
Not sure what skills you're going to require to do the job?

How to keep the team happy?

Motivating your employees will become one of the most important parts of your job, without their help you’re in big trouble, and could even go out of business. So how do you keep your staff happy while still getting their respect?
  • Take an interest
  • Keep them in the loop
  • Compliments cost nothing
Keep in mind how your felt when you were in there shoes.   Things that motivated you will Motivate your employees.  Things that disgruntled you will do the same to them.



Management styles

If you’re still lost and unsure about how to manage your team effectively, don’t panic! There are several different styles of management you can try.


A Better Store Manager is a Hands on Retail Manager.
  • Work with your retail associates.  Teach them the right way and the wrong way to do the task at hand.  Show that your willing to help out when needed.   If your the manager who sits in the office and only comes out on the sales floor the critique, expect disgruntled employees.   
  • Lead by Example!  The Ruff-riders followed  Teddy Roosevelt into battle.  He didn't stand back and say go charge up that hill alone. 


The Delegator  
Although it’s important to be aware of everything that’s going on, don’t do everything yourself, remember as manager it’s now your job to get more done than you can do yourself.
As long as you know what needs to be done, you can delegate the work to the best person and your store will still run efficiently. 

Stay Calm and Collected
Stay calm in a crisis and leave the excitement to your staff; remember if anything goes wrong the staff will look to you to lead the way. 
As a manager, you are  responsible for the whole team. You are the voice of reasoning for the group when dealing with company-wide issues. If your team let you down, you have to take it on the chin, but equally if they do well, you can be credited with the success – and that is the most rewarding part of the job.
