What does your store culture say about your mission, your values, and your business ideals? Do employees know why you started your store, and more importantly, do they care? Your store culture is an extension of your values. Booksellers will be led through a series of exercises to help them better understand and foster store culture. Attending booksellers should be able to concisely explain their values in order to fully utilize the information in this session.
