GEM Coaching Approach

At Worthy Retail Leadership we are often asked, “how does coaching work and how can it help me or my organization?”

Coaching is one of the most professionally tailored personal or organizational developmental experience. It involves a close and confidential relationship between the coach and the client.

Our GEM Coaching Approach

At Worthy Retail U our coaching approach to leadership development is broken up
into three areas we refer to as GEMs: Grow, Empower, and Multiply.


At Worthy Retail U, we believe in the continuous growth and development of retail leaders. We understand that leaders already possess a fundamental understanding of basic leadership and personal development skills. Our goal is to help leaders grow, expand, and build upon their existing foundation through a range of transformative principles.

Our GROW principles is broken into two major parts...

Before you grow you have to know where you stand and what you stand for:

  1. Reflecting on Leadership Bias: Identifying and understanding your current leadership bias, acknowledging how it has shaped your leadership approach over time.
  2. Achieving Sustainable Results: Learning effective strategies to achieve the sustainable results you desire, based on evidence-based practices and behavioral science principles.
  3. Uncovering Blind Spots: Identifying any blind spots that may hinder your growth as a leader and developing strategies to overcome them.
  4. Establishing New Leadership Skills: Discovering and cultivating new leadership skills that align with the evolving demands of the retail industry. We provide practical tools and techniques to enhance your leadership effectiveness.

We focus on four critical gaps we see in 90% of the leaders we serve:

  1. Adaptive Leadership: Developing the ability to adapt to changing circumstances, navigate complexity, and lead with resilience in the dynamic retail landscape.
  2. Cultivating Empathy: Understanding the needs and perspectives of team members and stakeholders, fostering meaningful connections, and creating a supportive work environment.
  3. Building Authentic Relationships: Establishing trust, transparency, and open communication within your team and across the organization, fostering collaboration and synergy.
  4. Mentorship and Empowerment: Developing mentorship skills to guide and empower others on their leadership journeys, creating a culture of continuous growth and development.
