The entire QuickChek team is passing the halfway mark in our 2015 fiscal year. What is your focus for the next six months? How will you do your part to keep building a great company and delivering the best fresh convenience in the New York metro marketplace?
All of our Leaders know the power of the huddle. Take time to huddle and review what you’ve accomplished thus far. Understand why you’ve made gains and why results may have fallen short. Then agree on an action plan to get what you want. That’s the focus we need right now. Simply put, that’s Leadership.
Leadership is a major component of being a Great Place to Work. Our President’s Leadership Council (PLC) recognizes the best of the best, those leaders who know how to deliver results. The PLC recently returned from West Point, the United States Military Academy. This was just one of four leadership exploration events designed for the PLC. Congratulations by the way to the nominated co-chairs of this year’s PLC- Daniele Alexandre #77 and Kevin Woodring #144! The next PLC adventure is meeting with the executives of Hershey and visiting the Milton Hershey School.
We also recently finished our annual Leadership Growth Assessments, reviewing the performance of every Team Member to identify our high potential leaders. We have a growing need for leaders. With new stores like Wayne #110, Mt. Arlington and Lakewood under construction, as well as Marlboro, Fairfield and Howell ready to break ground opportunity is popping up everywhere.
Our mobile app is taking off and we’re supporting all of our stores with great promotions throughout the summer. We’ve installed Q Cafes in over 100 stores and there will be special promotions there too. We are poised to make a huge gain in the second half of 2015.
Leadership is a process at QuickChek, and it beings with personal leadership. Are you ready to make the most of 2015? The grass is greening and the weather is warming, now is the time to make sales happen in your stores.
