The "Big Three" When Hiring

When you hire the right person, put them in a strong culture, and provide the structure for them to develop their skills and talents, your life as a leader gets better in a hurry. However, when you hire recklessly and bring on warm-bodied-mirror-foggers so you can claim to have “coverage,” you sentence your dealership to a costly misadventure of misery on the installment plan.While I don’t have space in this column to share everything of importance to evaluate when assessing a job candidate…See More

How to Positively Apply Pressure to Perform

In today’s hyper-sensitive and politically correct climate, it’s safe to say this article’s title has already offended some—those who believe as long as people show up every day and try hard they should be awarded the business version of a participation trophy: continued employment, benefits, and excessive time and attention to bring their performance up from perpetually miserable to at least occasionally mediocre.But in strong cultures (or cultures aspiring to become that way) the leaders…See More

Four Steps to Create a Culture of Candor

Posted on November 17, 2015 at 12:29pm 4 Comments

On a consulting mission years ago a dealer told me, “Our team is very healthy; we never fight.” I replied, “If your team doesn’t fight it’s not healthy, it’s dysfunctional.” Teams with strong personalities, passions, and opinions will clash from time to time about issues, strategies, and over how to best advance the organization. And this is a very good thing. Following are four reasons why conflict is not only necessary, but should be insisted upon.

1. Conflict…

How to Lead Well When Bad Things Happen

Posted on October 23, 2015 at 5:57pm 2 Comments

After the fallout from the G.M. ignition switch debacle—and most recently with VW’s emission issues—clients have contacted me asking for suggestions on how to handle the adverse publicity, for how to keep their team focused, and on how to prepare them for customer’s questions and concerns. Of course, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all remedy; and, while what I’m suggesting in this piece is far from the final word on the topic of crisis management, you may find some ideas to help you deal…

Hi Dave,

Thank you for your acceptance.

I was at the AutoCon luncheon when you spoke and being a man who rarely says no to good food, I stopped my meal took out my notebook and began taking notes. Upon my return and reading them, I thought maybe there was a video of the event or a presentation I could acquire. The speach was one that our dealer principal and others must here or see. If you can or cannot assist me thank you for a wonderful enlightening speach.

Hi Dave,

I had the pleasure of hearing you a few years ago in Seattle WA at a Chevrolet SeaFair kickoff brunch sponsored by the Puget Sound Chevrolet Dealers. I transcribed my notes of your meeting and shared them with ownership. I found your presentation to be information rich, comprehensive, practical and most important founded in core values and principles. Thank you for your contribution to my life as well as the auto industry.
