Publix Grocery Stores.
I am usually scheduled to close the Deli at Publix. I look forward to the challenge almost every night, because closing is a difficult task. You need to be able to give 100% of your attention to the customers while being flexible enough to get the cleaning done.
The book Lead like Ike is a great game plan for getting to the much needed success of our store.
Eisenhower began the Longest Day (D-Day) with the words:
"Okay Let's Go"
And he took full responsibility for implementation of the plan.
"Eisenhower's career as D-Day's CEO provides an encyclopedic case study for designing and implementing organizational strategies" ." P xvii
Lead like Ike was a hard book to read straight through, I had every intention to finish the book quickly, but the book took me a long time to read. The book's narrative did not have enough spice to capture my interest. Lead Like Ike did not create a flow that could not be denied. I am also not sure that this book would be one I could share with my work team, as I think it may bore them silly. But the book is a good resource. I plan to refer to it when I come across a sticky wicket in the Publix Deli.
