Everybody has things they want to accomplish. But sometimes, it takes an expert to accomplish your #SparkGoals. Stacie is that kind of expert.
A fixer. Or maybe a pinch hitter. No matter how you put it, if a store in her market is struggling, Stacie S., co-manager of Store 3537 in Lakewood, Wash., is the person they send to get things back up and running smoothly.
Once, Stacie spent two weeks at a store that was temporarily without a manager. “The goal was to get them through Black Friday.”
Another time, she helped a store when the manager had a death in the family. “The regional manager was supposed to be there in four days, and the store had some opportunities. So, the team and I had to come up with an attainable plan to get us where we needed to be.”
She once went to a store where the manager was out with an illness: “I went in Nov. 1, and because of the holidays, we had to figure out how to get the store back to where it needed to be. There were something like 140 pallets on the floor.”
Stacie knew they had to fix it, so she said everybody’s going to deal with 10 pallets. “That’s our goal. We have 15 people here. Everybody kills 10 pallets. You do the math. We’ll be off the floor.”
Here, Stacie talks about how she helps associates at stores meet their goals—and offers some tips to help you meet yours, too.
