Share Groups

We all have times when we need input from others. Harold has found a way to help management & supervisors do this on a regular basis, through his dynamic Share Groups that bring together non-competing executives from around North America. The members create friendships, synergies, and fluid communication from each other, which in turn help search member organization improve its operations and profitability.

Participants in the Share Groups are dedicated to the concept of working together. As Harold says, “No ONE person is as smart as ALL of us together.” Share Group members make a commitment to attending the meetings, participating enthusiastically, maintaining mutual respect, dealing openly and honestly with each other, and providing prompt response among members between meetings.

Six Share Groups are currently active, organized around the topics of.

1. Store Operations – The G.O. Group

2. Merchandising and Marketing – The M4 Group

3. Loss Prevention – The FD/BD Group (Front Door/Back Door)

4. Human Resources – The SHRE Group (Supermarket Human Resources Executive

5. Deli/Bake – Give ‘N Take Share Group

6. The BANTAM Group – An association of small but fighting retailers

Each group is limited to 35 members, recruited from the best companies in North America. Each Share Group meetings at least annually with Harold as the group facilitator, who organizes the agenda, store tours, discussion points, and homework assignments.
