His pole star is that today the most effective training for store assistants is focused on relationship, experience and emotions.

Store assistants need the motivations and the know-how to play four fundamental roles:

  1. PRODUCT EXPERTS: Shop assistants must be able to present new products, new fashion trends, new materials. They have to master  features and advantages method as to elicit emotions. They have to be ready to answer customers questions. It’s not easy since the changes in fashion and technologies are so rapid;
  2.  CONSULTANTS: They need very sensitive listening skills to take care of customers and their psychological motivations because “people agree only on what they wish to ear”
  3. CUSTOMERS EXPERIENCE CREATORS: the store assistants’ behavior is the most effective mean for creating customer experience  and for making the customers loyal
  4. PERSUADERS: able to bring the customer to the purchase decision and to cross sell in a natural way.
