Today's Thought Leader was Natasha Exley, Senior Retail Manager at Stella McCartney:
How can I measure my success in a brand that’s trending down?
Three things to keep in mind when in this situation:
1) What can you directly influence or control?
2) What are you going to do to be the absolute BEST at what you CAN control?
3) Is what you cannot control a deal breaker?
Give the controllable your full time and attention and don't be afraid to try new things and fail...miserably.Partner with leadership to set goals and work every day to achieve them tracking progress along the way. The awareness, the initiative and the amount of time and energy put into the controllable results is how I ultimately determine my success. Just remember to be kind and honest with yourself. Having the self-awareness to realize when you're doing great work in an impossible situation as well as recognizing when you're unable to be effective or not set up to be successful.
