Brick-and-mortar retail stores are going through a prolonged contraction — one that will shrink both the number and size of storefronts across the nation over the next decade. This trend is having far-reaching effects on everything from employment and sales tax revenue to commercial real estate and construction. And Northern Nevada, like the rest of the nation, will see the ripple effects of these changes.

 

Store closures have hit RadioShack, Sears, J.C. Penney, and most recently Macy’s — which announced 68 store closures this month. Some analysts estimate that the nation’s overall retail square footage will drop by between one-third and one-half over the next five to 10 years.

Trust can often be glossed over in organization as a “soft virtue,” but this is a mistake. Trust is a vital ingredient of successful leadership. It empowers and elevates your team, and helps build strong relationships with clients and partners. Trust is a foundational aspect of business that can often be overlooked in this complex corporate world, where software tools and analytics often consume our attention.
