Six Steps to Becoming a Game Changer!

     In last month’s column I presented differences in the mindset and behaviors of three primary performance groups: caretakers, playmakers and game changers. If you missed that piece, you may wish to find it in the archives, as it will create the perspective that makes the six steps I present here more meaningful. For a brief summary of caretakers, playmakers, and game changers, consider that: Caretakers are steady baseliners who do dependable work, but no more than what is required; and,…See More

Are You a Game Changer?

There are normally three types of team members on an organization’s payroll: caretakers, playmakers, and game changers. The behaviors associated with each category go beyond skills or talent; they are primarily mindset issues that determine how well the skills and talent of an individual will be applied.While these characteristics can typify any position, this article will focus on helping you to evaluate yourself and the other leaders on your team.

"The very definition of "Game Changer" was probably coined for Babe Ruth. In 1918 he led the league with 11 homeruns while still a top pitcher !  No player has ever come close to that. It is also important for management to recognize…"

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

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

Posted on March 22, 2016 at 1:13pm 1 Comment

     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…

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.
