How to embrace the ‘gifts’ in challenging situations

Many retail cultures do not encourage the sharing of challenges or failures and even sometimes the sharing of successes. Therefore, if the culture you work within is against sharing lessons, it may be something that never enters your mind or your team’s, especially if that business is all you have ever known. In our home life, this is the same. If you are brought up not to share failures and to just suck it up and get on with it, then chances are this same behaviour will play out in your life.
