Leader-Led Method


What if your District Managers could focus on coaching and developing their teams instead of creating content. After creating hundreds of leadership development programs during a 25-year career leading field operations (because we couldn’t find retail specific courses) we created the retailu LOD method. retailu courses are effective leadership programs that are easily adopted by store teams and district managers. Our LOD method guides your team through micro video lessons, with discussion guides, assessments, and workbooks that can be led by district managers with their store managers, or directors to create professional development programs that drive results.

Investing in your team is guaranteed to improve your results. Giving your team the right leadership programs, so they don’t have to piece articles, ted talks, and other random pieces of content together will save them time and create leadership language consistency throughout your organization.
