To Achieve More, You Must Motivate Better

Published

on

No company is perfect, but with help from this issue’s lead story, you can transform your team. 

At INSTORE magazine, each and every person is a key asset. And it’s the collaboration of our talented editorial, design, web and sales teams that gets the job done. Without each of those individuals working together as a unit, we would not be able to provide you with fresh insights and daily advice (make sure to subscribe to our daily newsletters at instr.us/v). 

Ok, truth be told, behind the magic curtain is a company much like yours that doesn’t always run seamlessly. We have new product launches regularly, new competitors, changes in staff and various other challenges. It can sometimes seem insurmountable. 

How do we overcome those challenges? The same way you can: motivation. When the regular flow of business is disrupted, we rely on our unique culture and incentives to motivate the team to persevere and exceed expectations.

I encourage you to take to heart this month’s big story, not simply to develop cool motivational tools for your business, but to look at this process strategically. Build your culture through an overarching web of motivational incentives and see how your team works beyond their assigned responsibilities to provide your store with the competitive edge to succeed. 

Wishing you success,

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
