When it comes to a woman's day-to-day experience and her career trajectory, one key player has the most significant impact: her boss. If we really want to support women in the workplace, managers must step up. The good news is that many of the things you can do to be a better manager for women are easy. In The Good Boss, CEO and business consultant Kate Eberle Walker offers timely, tactical advice based on her experience coaching managers, as well as the lessons she learned working her own way up the corporate ladder. Eberle Walker outlines nine straightforward rules that any manager can follow to help the women on their team—whether they oversee one, one hundred, or one thousand employees. You'll learn: • How to build stronger working relationships by being your authentic self • How she balances work and family, and what you can do to help • What to do (and what not to do) when a new mother returns to work • How to identify and deal with problematic comments and behaviors from her coworkers • When is the right time to be a tough boss and how to navigate difficult conversations Eberle Walker also shares insights from CEOs across a range of industries who use creative, forward-thinking methods to support women throughout an entire organization. This guide is for all managers—male and female—who want to avoid common missteps, get great results from their employees, and put them on the path to happy and fulfilling careers.
First off, we promise to treat you the way we would want to be treated. We would love for you to go on this venture with us as our store opens, and hopefully continues to grow. There won't ever be an experience like an in-store experience, especially when that experience involves entertainment! Our in-store atmosphere is only rivaled by our in-store products. A lot of the things you loved about the old Hastings Entertainment Superstore, you will still be able to find at Hastings Toys and More! We will also offer special in-store events as well from gaming events, to special release parties celebrating everything entertainment!
Kandi & Jerry Bostic
Thank you everyone for visiting our site, and eventually our store. I, Jerry, worked and managed the old Hastings in Ardmore for 11 years from 1999-2010. After leaving in 2010, Hastings never left my heart, or how I went about managing other things throughout the course of the last 11 years. I have so many memories of the store that I can't imagine going back into retail in this fashion and not paying homage to the brand that taught me so much about managing and life. Sharing this venture with my significant other is a dream come true, and we can't wait to show you what we believe Hastings would look like in 2021 and beyond, through Hastings Toys and more!
