During one particular Loss Prevention Workshop, I had a lady who was very upfront that the only reason she was working here was to get the employee discount. Needless to say, I quickly assumed that she would barely pay attention, much less remember anything that I was teaching her. Still, I didn’t dismiss her from the loss prevention training, I just made sure that I gave the best information I could hoping some of it would be retained.
Months later, she came unexpectedly barging into my office. They very first thing she said was “I remembered what you said during the loss prevention workshop regarding red flags…”
Sure enough, she did remember, much more than I think either of us would have expected her to. She was right in picking up on the warning signs. As a result, she stopped a loss of almost $1200 dollars. To this day, I am not sure about who had a greater sense of pride- her or me.
She was so proud of herself for doing something she never dreamed herself capable of. I was proud that I had given her the tools, in such a way that she remembered after all of those months, to be successful. Because I didn’t give up on her during the loss prevention training, she was able to be successful in a completely unexpected way.
