We’re beyond thrilled to share that our very own President & COO, Melissa Reiff, was featured in the September issue of D CEO magazine, in a story highlighting five influential female business leaders in Dallas. We’re so proud that 75% of The Container Store’s top leadership team is made up of women and companywide we’re 64% female.
In the article, Melissa was asked to share more about her leadership style, challenges and strategies. Not surprisingly, Melissa shared more about Communication IS Leadership – the Foundation Principle that she brought to our company that says we must practice “consistent, reliable, predictable, effective, thoughtful, compassionate and yes, even courteous communication” every single day. Nothing makes someone feel a part of the team than open, transparent communication!
And Melissa’s really walking the talk on this one…this year she and Eva, our VP of Stores, Training and Development & Recruiting, embarked upon “The Connection Roadshow,” during which they’re spending a day in each store across the country, talking and working with our teams and customers… sharing, listening and learning. They’ll visit all of our stores by the year’s end to ensure everyone is feeling safe, secure and warm about where The Container Store is headed. We’re all so inspired by her!
