It's Time to Part with the Participation Trophies

Entitlement is defined as believing you are owed special rewards, privileges or treatment. In essence entitlement says, “You owe me because I show up and belong, not because I step up and perform.” Frankly, entitlement is the language of losers.We’ve seen a rise of entitlement—and entitlements—in society over past decades, and the same corrupt sentiment has spilled over into business cultures as those raised with a sense of entitlement aren’t going to easily “flip the switch” and believe they…See More

The Importance of Mental Toughness

     Mental toughness is a topic widely discussed in athletics, but less often in business. Yet, mental toughness in any job or industry is at least as important to sustainable success as it is in sports. While it’s common in business to discuss strong drive, ample talent, and great attitudes, without mental toughness those traits are marginalized.     Mental toughness is defined as: a collection of attributes that allow a person to persevere through difficult circumstances and emerge without…See More

Face and Fix Weak Leadership

There’s just no warm and fuzzy way to say this: our business is littered with weak leaders. They’re ubiquitous. They come from all generations, genders, and ethnicities; represent every franchise; and are likewise commonly found in variable, fixed, office, and management company positions—including the dealer. What’s more dangerous than being a weak leader, or having a weak leader is:Failing to realize you are one.Knowing you are one and thinking it doesn’t matter.Being so out of touch you…See More

The "Big Three" When Hiring

Posted on January 22, 2016 at 12:19pm 5 Comments

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…

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.
