For decades, Sears stores in Miami stocked snowblowers in their garden centers, even though no one ever bought one and it hasn’t snowed in Miami since 1977.
That, says Steven D. Goldstein, a former Sears senior executive, results from management disengagement – an ailment that plaques many owners and senior executives.
Steve, who has been a top executive at several Fortune 500 companies, is an evangelist for management engagement. His first book, Why Are There Snowblowers in Miami? – due out later this year, details five positive principles of engagement that can prevent boneheaded management actions.
Steve shares those principles this week on Monday Morning Radio with host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart, and answers the obvious question: What was Sears thinking?
