The article deals with the opinion of Chuck Coonradt, author and founder of Game of Work, on the importance of work environment in the grocery trade. He says people have an almost frightening opportunity to drive better performance in their stores, if they would just invest in bringing to their store managers and department managers a set of skills that will allow them to create a better environment. He notes that supermarket operators face the fear of not being able to keep their sons and daughters in the business.
