He has worked with the company for several years before that and understands how to motivate others to accomplish the goals of the company and find new ways to improve and grow as a business.Craig Gaskill has been a valuable leader for his particular Play Mart store for years because he constantly challenges himself to improve these three skills to be a better leader:
• Organization You could say that organization is a necessary skill in many workplaces. But especially in a retail setting like where Craig Gaskill works, organization of products, sales and promotional material and the distribution of the different staff members on the sales floor. As a manager, the look of the store and the coordination of the staff that works there are a reflection on your leadership.
• Delivering criticism There will be plenty of employees who work hard and improve seemingly on their own, but everyone else needs constructive criticism every now and then to fine tune their abilities as staff members there help customers and keep the store running smoothly. Being able to explain criticism in a positive way is a great managerial skill.
• Teamwork Teamwork in this case refers to your ability to work in a team to accomplish a common goal and your ability to form the right teams to complete the tasks you need completed.
Craig Gaskill has helped his store improve in many discern-able metrics through the years working there as a manager and leader.
