Lead with Awareness for Positive Effect
Retail is exciting, fast-moving, and filled with opportunity, yet information overload is a constant challenge. Join retail strategist, speaker, and trainer Carol Spieckerman every other Thursday as she navigates past the noise to get to the heart of what really matters in retail. In every episode, Carol harnesses her latest retail trajectories and interviews with industry experts to distill tools, tactics, and takeaways for wherever you play in retail. If you’re ready to cut to the chase, or just want to be inspired about where retail is going next, this show is for you.
Despite the encroachment of Ecommerce and tech-driven experiences, people will play an important role in powering retail forward, yet traditional leadership and employee incentive models will no longer work as the industry transforms.
April Sabral is the author of The Positive Effect, a companion book to her training and coaching platform, RetailU. The book is an inspiring story of overcoming and empowerment that pulls together April’s years of experience leading store teams for global brands like Apple, Banana Republic, and Starbucks. In this interview episode, April and Carol discuss the new-world realities that will transform retail leadership and how retailers can maximize the opportunity to empower associates and engage shoppers.

- The three pillars of leading with awareness
