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.

Our students love retailu.
As a Regional Director leading a team of 15 DM’s across Canada, I can assure you that there is nothing out the that comes even close to retailu in terms of efficiency, expertise of content and relevance, delivering an instant big return on a small investment. I’ve been looking for years for such quality content and the feedback from my team is unanimous, these courses are so on point for anyone wanting to expand their retail leadership skills.

It is a very clear and helpful training tool. I wish I had a resource like this when I began my career as District Manager. The videos are clear, concise and debunk some theories of how we think we should handle a situation as well as give excellent tips on time management and executing effective and efficient.
Claudie Turcotte, District Manager, Ardene, QC
RetailU has been very interesting. I have enjoyed the courses I’ve been able to complete since it’s launch. Although some has been practices I already do in store a lot of it has made me adapt my store visits and overall interactions with my teams. Very enlightening. This would be super beneficial to give to high volume managers as well as our trained backups so they can continue their development.

These courses are so helpful, even as a store manager for over twenty years I learned something new. Very practical, highly recommend.

“RetailU is the best learning and development platform for busy high demand retail environments because it has quick, informative course models and focuses on what’s important. RetailU has extensive program content which has allowed me to build professional development into our weekly schedule and goals. I assigned one course a week. We would complete the course and I would host a half-hour zoom meeting to discuss the lesson. Then review the questions in the guide and then suggest how we would use or have used the lesson in real life”.
