    Keys to Effectiveness:

    Ability to Evaluate Talent. It is essential that the District is staffed with great people at all levels.
    Strong bench strength is a must. The District Manager is responsible for evaluating the District team for
    successors at each level. Team members that are high performers must be recognized and given
    opportunities; weak performers must be discussed with HR and addressed appropriately. Strong
    recruiting and hiring skills is a trait that will ensure the effectiveness of a District Manager.
    Results and Business Focused. To be effective, the District Manager must exhibit strong business
    acumen in order to properly identify factors influencing performance. The District Manager must
    provide a solution and an action plan that will positively affect performance.
    Coaching Skills are Imperative. Developing a strong team requires that the District Manager use strong
    coaching skills to teach and develop the team of Store Managers/Supervisors. Coaching skills should be
    used to encourage and grow the behavior and skills that make a Store Manager/Supervisor successful
    as well as correcting those behaviors that lessen a Store Manager's/Supervisor's effectiveness.
    Strong Relationship Building Skills. The relationships that a District Manager builds contribute greatly
    to the District's success. The District Manager must build relationships with those within the district as
    well as those outside the district. Effective District Managers provide links to people that can fix a
    problem immediately. Each department within the FSC should be seen as a partner in building the
    success of the District. In some instances the District Manager may need to influence without authority
    and the existing relationship will determine the success of that influence.
    Good Judgment and Sound Decision Making Skills. District Managers deal with any number of difficult
    situations on a daily basis, ranging from personnel issues to problems with facility maintenance to
    customer complaints. In most of these situations, a decision must be made quickly. Even though the
    decision is made in a short timeframe, it must always comply with company strategy while meeting the
    needs of the store/customer/coworker.
