I know many of us who don't work in retail won't want to think about it, but, for retailers, Christmas is fast approaching (in 80 days' time, in fact) and shop keepers are unpacking and labelling their seasonal stock ready to fill their shelves.
So whether you’re a business owner, manager or employee, you’ll find the pace of change is increasing rapidly and at times can be challenging. Change is driven by competition, due to changing consumer purchasing habits, new technology and also the demands of the political landscape nationally and globally.
It’s time to relax, recharge and reflect. You then may well start back after your holiday with renewed energy and reset business goals. But to be effective and for change to stick, you need to understand that “it starts with you”.
