Out of 19 stores in my district, my store is number one. I can then extrapolate further and know that my store is number one in my region and in the nation. I have never read any data or heard anything from my superiors saying otherwise. I don’t read the reports that track the performance of my store or any other store. I would not want to let the opinion of a report get in the way of how I view the position of my store against all 1500 stores in my company. I just want to come to work, do my job, and go home at night knowing that my store is always number one.
I figure that if this model is good enough for the political leaders of the United States, then it’s a good enough model for my store. U-S-A!
