“The Business Coaching Foundation’s ILM Level 5 coaching programme is an excellent course for anyone involved with coaching. It teaches you theories and gives you practical experience of coaching. All felt very comfortable and I learnt lots of new skills. Thank you.”

Senior Trainer (Design) – Nationwide Building Society

“Overall I feel this experience will absolutely enhance my performance as a business coach.

Worth taking two days out of the office; can see real return on investment. Well facilitated, informal, interesting with plenty of healthy discussions.”

Coaching Development Manager – Avon Cosmetics

“What an excellent course. I’ve been on many courses where you get tons of theory but it’s too much effort to put into practice. This is massively different – practical, fun and easy!”

Founder President – Professional Speakers Association

“The programme is a practical approach to coaching, and always referred back to what you can do in your business.”

Training Manager – Debenhams

“Having been a practising coach for a few years, this programme was the first formal training I have attended. It enabled me to fine tune my current skills, practise some new ones, learn about different structures/techniques, and more importantly become a more rounded coach.”

HR Business Partner – Molson Coors

ILM Coaching

As an ILM approved centre. we offer a number of ILM courses in coaching mentoring, as well as ILM management and leadership qualifications. Our range of Level 3 and Level 5 courses offer ILM qualifications for team leaders and first line managers, right up to CEOs, directors, corporate executives and senior management.

To see the complete range of the accredited ILM qualifications we offer, please click here .

Management Training

As well as our business coaching programmes, we also offer a range of bespoke and ILM accredited management training courses for those new or existing managers who either need to sharpen their managerial skills, or, for those who are new to a management role, an introductory course such as First Line Management training.

As far as managers and executives are concerned, management training can often go hand in hand with business coaching provisions. This is because both have the goal of improving the effectiveness of the manager or executive in terms of satisfying the responsibilities which their role entails, albeit in a slightly different approach. Whereas business coaching with an external coach will comprise largely of discussions and the creation of action plans relying primarily on the lead of the manager themselves, management training courses will teach them information, and although it is likely to contain some exercises, is far less interactive than business coaching sessions will be .

Business coaching can have a dual advantage when it comes to improving the performance of managers. Firstly it can provide a forum for a discussion with the manager to identify the areas in which they can improve, either through their own admission or being recognised by the coach and pointed out to the manager or executive, and is quite often an issue which the manager never even considered but would be highly beneficial for their development. After identifying these areas, suitable management training courses can be identified for the manager to attend which will teach them information and tips which should greatly improve their knowledge and proficiency in this subject.

Afterwards, business coaching sessions can be utilised to create action plans regarding how the manager will implement and put into place their newly-acquired knowledge, as well as subsequent sessions to evaluate the success or otherwise of these changes, and to discuss possible alterations and revisions to the actions if necessary.

5 Important Transferable Skills You Gain In Retail Jobs #luxury #retail #jobs

5 Important Transferable Skills You Gain In Retail Jobs

When you work in retail, you don t (or at least rarely) get the luxury of a set schedule.

The customer is always right (even when they aren t).

You can spend a good portion of your shift cleaning up messes made by other people.

You may have to refold the same sweater 27 times in a single day.

It s easy to focus on the negatives, but that won t help your career, will it?

On the more positive side, working in retail allows you to gain some amazing experience and highly transferable skills that are valuable in any sector, which you can take with you as you move between roles or industries.

So, whether you really want a long-term career in retail, or are simply working in a part-time or seasonal retail job to keep yourself busy and make some extra cash, your time spent behind the counter at a store or bank branch might prove to be more beneficial than you realized.

Take a look at how those classic points that employers seek on resumes can be supported by your time working the kiosk in the mall.

Excellent interpersonal skills

First and foremost, working in the customer service industry gives you the chance to spend your entire day communicating with people. You learn to be helpful, but genuine. Friendly yet efficient. You also get the chance to work with quite a diverse group of people, allowing you to experience and deal with a mixture of personality types.

Perhaps most importantly, you learn how to fake a smile when you need to. Not sure how exactly to answer the question your interviewer is asking you? No problem you worked retail.

Effective time management skills

Your Monday 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. shift is followed by Tuesday’s 12:30-7 and Wednesday’s 5-close. A flexible schedule forces you to learn how to utilize your time to get everything done.

Perhaps you are on the prowl for a more permanent position or you re still trying to fit your badminton games in three times a week.

Working a job with ever-changing hours forces you to be ever-on top of things.

Ability to stay calm in stressful circumstances

You re behind the cash. The line is halfway through the store and you are ringing through one customer s purchase while someone else is wagging damaged items under your nose.

Every industry is going to throw situations at you which require you to multitask. Fast. Having this previous experience can only help. Remember the most challenging circumstances you ve faced in your retail career and how you overcome those circumstances they ll come in handy in a job interview one day.

Experience handling cash, debit and credit card transactions

Handling money indicates that you are trustworthy and able to count (which, believe it or not, is a skill in and of itself). A future employer will appreciate both of these things.

Ability to problem solve and think on your feet

If you’re working on commission (or aren’t but still have managers watching you like a hawk), you better sell meaning you better learn how to handle that customer who says she’s just looking . Coming up with creative ways to make sales and converse with customers is going to impress any future employer and in the meantime, maybe even make you that commission.

Which on-the-job retail skills have proved to be most beneficial in your career so far?

    5 cutting-edge retail technology trends

    As retailers rev up for their busiest shopping season, they know some things never change: Holiday deal-seekers will race like mad through store aisles for the best Black Friday deals. Last-minute shoppers will wait until December 24 to make their purchases. Crowds will swarm stores the day after Christmas in a whirlwind of gift returns.

    The shopping experience itself, however, has undergone massive changes over the past two decades, especially as ecommerce has won over consumers and smartphones have become the must-have accessory. These days, retailers work around the clock to navigate a digital world that continues to evolve at a dizzying pace, while tech-savvy consumers have increased their demands for seamless experiences and personalized touches, wherever and however they shop.

    “In today’s increasingly connected world, brands and retailers are struggling to find ways to appeal to omnichannel shoppers,” says Mike Paley, executive vice president of shopper marketing at agency The Marketing Arm. “Technology advances have created an environment in which the line between brick-and-mortar and e-commerce is blurred and fading fast.”

    Here are five cutting-edge technology trends taking retail to the next level:

    1. Beacons

    With millions of shoppers toting smartphones in their pocket or purse, it’s no surprise that proximity marketing, through the use of location-based technologies such as Bluetooth-connected beacons, is becoming more than a flash-in-the-pan – as retailers look for ways to provide more personalized, real-time messages, offers and promotions. Macy’s, for example, recently rolled out beacons to 4,000 stores using Shopkick’s offering, and Swirl’s platform and hardware is being used by clients including Lord Taylor and Urban Outfitters. According to Business Insider, beacons will directly influence over $4 billion in U.S. retail sales this year and climb 10 times that next year.

    “Beacons were a novelty 15 months ago, but this year retailers are starting to take them more seriously,” says Scott Bauer, U.S. Retail Consumer Partner at consulting firm PwC. “There’s more experimentation about how to treat users in their stores with mobile phones.” The question is how to use them, he cautions, “so it doesn’t seem creepy or annoy customers.”

    2. Biometrics

    Biometrics, which uses technologies like fingerprint systems, facial recognition, iris scanning and voice identification, seems like a natural fit for retailers. Brands and banks that want to improve targeted marketing efforts and boost security. Biometrics Research Group predicts the global biometrics market to soar to $15 billion this year, up from an estimated $7 just three years ago. And, technology consulting firm Frost Sullivan forecast that nearly a half-billion people will be using a smartphone equipped with biometric technology by 2017.

    “iPhone users everywhere rejoiced when Apple added the passcode fingerprint scan,” says Paley. “Expect more in this area as marketers embrace the potential.” Ecommerce security can particularly benefit from biometrics, he says – MasterCard, for example, is working to allow customers to complete ecommerce transactions with just a selfie, he explains, while Visa has introduced a specification that can authenticate EMV chip card transactions using multiple forms of biometrics.

    3. Mobile ecommerce boom

    Mobile phones may not be no longer be cutting-edge, but the boom in mobile e-commerce certainly is, thanks to improved technologies and strategies. By the end of 2016, 25 percent of all retail ecommerce sales in the United States will take place via mobile devices, according to eMarketer.

    [Related:9 ways mobile and social tech improves the retail shopping experience]

    “The real estate on the device screen has gotten bigger, particularly in the iPhone 6, driving increased success for retailers,” says Elana Anderson, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at omnichannel commerce platform Demandware. Mobile smartphones – not tablets – drove 94 percent of the growth in shopping visits and 74% of basket creation growth, according to Demandware’s Q2 Shopping Index. “Also, retail strategies are now focused on a mobile-first consumer experience, whether it’s responsive design or increased speed,” she says. “All of that is contributing to the growth.”

    4. Social networks as shopping platforms

    Turns out social networks are about more than just spreading the word. Over the past year, social giants Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest have all experimented with direct “Buy” buttons on their website. For instance, Twitter tested their “Buy” button in September with a small group of sellers and are now said to be teaming up with Shopify, which has about 100,000 merchants, and other ecommerce software companies.

    Pinterest’s “buyable” button, launched with Demandware, recently launched on the iPhone and iPad, allowing users to purchase without leaving the Pinterest app. “We literally had our consumers lining up, there is a lot of excitement regarding social commerce,” says Anderson. “Retailers and consumers want to remove as much friction from the buying process as possible.”

    5. Digital in the store

    You don’t need to leave a physical store to get your digital fix. Instead, retailers are leveraging a wide array of in-store technologies meant to draw consumers in the door. “The physical store is on the cusp of significant transformation and disruption,” says Demandware’s Anderson.

    For example, retailers and brands such as Ugg Australia, Uniqlo and Neiman Marcus are using “magic” or “memory” mirror technologies, using RFID tags, which allow customers to try on virtual outfits in different colors and styles. Rebecca Minkoff has added text messaging and touch screen features in her stores that allow consumers to order drinks, browse the store catalog, and easily interact with store associates. Finally, Bloomingdale’s has experimented with mounting iPads in fitting rooms to allow customers to ask for help, read reviews and see what sizes are in stock.

    “There’s a ton of experimentation with digital across the board,” says Anderson. “It’s really about serving the customer from the online experience out of the store all the way through the store.”

    Top 5 retail trends to watch in 2015

    The retail landscape is changing more rapidly now than at any point in history. As technology and customer demands evolve, retailers and their supply chains must be increasingly flexible and adaptable.

    Let s take a look at the top 5 trends for the retail supply chain in 2015.

    1. This year will be omnichannel s time to shine.

    As much as the term omnichannel is overused and overhyped, there s no denying that the concept of integrated, silo-free customer experience is a reality that s here to stay. The difference in 2015? Retailers are getting smarter about it.

    The past few years have been full of instances of retailers scrambling to adopt so-called omnichannel strategies and capabilities, sometimes with less up-front analysis than such significant changes usually warrant. Often, goals were unclear and retailers were unsure how to accurately measure ROI or define success.

    In early 2014, almost two-thirds of retailers stated they had undertaken particular omnichannel initiatives solely because of a perceived customer expectation, rather than supporting data. The result was sometimes a patchwork quilt of roughly-executed capabilities, limited customer insight, and legacy systems ill-suited to enable the new approach.

    Fast forward along the learning curve to 2015: While no retailer would say it has this whole omnichannel thing entirely figured out, many leading retailers are now really hitting their strides. Those that are succeeding in the space have been figuring out what s working and what isn t, how to measure it and how to improve it. And others have been following that lead. The dust has begun to settle, and the early mania surrounding the buzzword of omnichannel has given way to the reality of data-driven, incremental steps toward the realization of omnichannel.

    2. Transportation issues will get worse before they get better.

    It s no secret that these days, retailers face challenges on virtually all fronts when it comes to getting products from origin to consumer.

    While many U.S. seaports moved record volumes of freight in 2014 an almost 7% increase over 2013 in many ways it was a troublesome year, with ongoing congestion issues and, in the case of the West Coast, ominous uncertainty surrounding labor negotiations.

    While negotiations between the ILWU and the PMA continue to drag on, larger port issues would remain even if a labor agreement could be reached immediately. Alliances, bigger ships, operational shortcomings, infrastructure limitations and more will continue to make for a rocky road ahead. While ports, carriers, and terminal operators realize the problems exist, figuring out the best way to address them and then actually addressing them isn t an overnight endeavor.

    Things aren t much easier once cargo begins its domestic journey, either. While highway infrastructure continues to age and the funding to improve it remains elusive, the shortage of truck drivers is increasingly acute. Though Congress recently voted to suspend the Hours-of-Service restart rules that FMCSA instituted in 2013, it s only a temporary stay, and will be revisited in September of 2015. The ever-tumultuous world of transportation will continue to keep retailers on their toes in 2015.

    3. Cyber-security and the supply chain grow closer.

    Retailers continued commitment to cyber-security was thrust into the spotlight over the past year, with a series of data breaches capturing the attention of the public and the media. Historically focused on maintaining the security of their own systems and networks, the scale of the threat has caused many retailers to look outside their virtual four walls.

    In 2014, several leading retailers reached out and joined forces to create the Retail Cyber Intelligence Sharing Center (R-CISC), an industry-wide entity dedicated to sharing leading practices and actionable intelligence in the fight against retail cyber threats.

    In 2015, expect to see retailers continued focus on their own systems, but also greater attention to the much larger ecosystem throughout the supply chain. An average mid-size retailer can have thousands of suppliers and vendors; larger chains have tens of thousands. Each of those suppliers has its own network of suppliers, creating an enormous web of electronic interdependency and data exchange.

    Often considered to be solely the purview of the IT guys, supply chain execs will find themselves playing a larger role in their companies cyber-security measures.

    4. Brick and mortar is back with a vengeance.

    After many years of pundits heralding the end of brick and mortar, the store is reasserting its importance as a vital part of retail commerce.

    A recent study indicated that 82% of consumers had made purchases online in the past year, and e-commerce sales have been growing by more than 19% a year.

    E-commerce is getting bigger, not going away, but it s not putting a stake in the heart of stores either. Instead, as retailers learn more about how to move toward true omnichannel integration, the physical presence and the online presence will be more intertwined. Previous years rampant fears about showrooming are giving way to success stories around leveraging stores in support of omnichannel strategies.

    Many chains have found big wins with pilot programs that employ their existing network of physical locations as order fulfillment centers, and retailers are really learning how to maximize the benefit of buy online pick up in store. Indeed, if omnichannel centers on a richer customer relationship, then in-store interactions are a critical component of the experience.

    Expect to see more tailored, personalized shopper experiences, enabled by technology. E-commerce isn t killing stores, it is compelling stores to get better and become more relevant, and we re finally beginning to see more results of that effect.

    5. Smaller footprints, greater impacts.

    Big boxes are getting smaller and moving to the city. Several major retailers have recently stated plans for smaller-format stores, usually in more urban locations.

    The U.S. Census Bureau announced last year that urban population growth continues to dramatically outpace the country s overall growth rate, as more people move to cities. Hand-in-hand with urbanization comes smaller household sizes; these and other factors have shifted many retailers focus to smaller stores in urban locations.

    Along with this move comes a new set of supply chain challenges, ranging from managing localized product mixes, to the urban distribution challenges of navigating an 18-wheeler through city traffic, tight docks, and vigilant parking enforcement officers.

    More than ever before, retail supply chain professionals will find themselves grappling with the usual challenges of moving product from origin to consumer now with an added layer of urban complexity on top. 2015 is shaping up to be an exciting year in retail supply chain, with many new developments.

    All these topics, and more, will be highlighted in sessions at the Retail Industry Leaders Association s upcoming Retail Supply Chain Conference in Orlando on Feb. 22-25. With a program developed by and featuring many of retail s top supply chain executives, the longest-running supply chain conference devoted to retailers is focused on top issues, leading practices and actionable takeaways.

    5 Retail Trends for 2015

    New shopper generations like Millennials are reshaping the retail industry, and here’s five retail trends emerging in 2015.

    The convergence of digital and physical channels is critical for retailers who want to succeed in building their brands with their customer bases. The shopping experience must be accessible, available and deliverable all in the format and time that shoppers want it. Building multiple and consistent touchpoints across various channels is key to top line growth. Leveraging strong CRM and loyalty programs across digital and physical will deliver strong bottom line performance by engaging the most loyal customers.

    2. Optimization of the In-Store Shopping Journey

    The in-store shopping experience must be inspiring, captivating and relevant to the shopper. Gone are the days of keep her in the store as long as possible so she will spend more. The new mantra is, offer differentiated product in a captivating environment, and deliver in the most efficient manner.

    3. Enabling Technology to Inspire and Captivate

    Using in-store technologies to continue the customer touchpoint beyond the four walls is critical. The use of in-store messaging, iBeacons, social media, loyalty programs and personal associate communications before, during and after the store visit continues the shopping experience beyond the scope of the four walls. Understanding and measuring in-store shopper activities and engagement are key to building stores that transcend shopper exploration and leads to customer commitment.

    4. Location Format Redux

    Across all retail types, from size to channel, there is a paradigm shift for businesses engaged in the retail sector. Large format discount stores are investing in small, bite size elements of their footprint showcasing specific product categories, and online only retailers are opening up physical stores to showcase the branding experience for customers. Retailers are closing down unprofitable locations while investing deeply in store theatrics for locations in prime target areas of their customers. The bottom line is that retailers need to create both physical branding opportunities, and relevant shopping journeys across all channels.

    5. The Convenience Factor

    Convenience is the key deliverable for today’s customer and the future customer of tomorrow. Make it easy and relevant. Complex infrastructures might be in the background, but the front side has to be “easy.” Today s shopper has less money, less time and less infinitely patience for retailers to get it right.
