Learning how to "Be Still"

"All great points but the last one really stood out to me. If the standards and changes don't start at the top, it is hard to make progress. Make sure everyone is 100% invested in your training."

For the last 18 years, I have performed Service Advisor training in hundreds of drives across the country at an individual and corporate level. My goal has been to provide coaching, critiquing and encouragement to Advisors and Managers, in a way that guides them to become successful profitable professionals. My experience also includes duties as a Service Manager for an Import dealer in Florida and I have been fortunate enough to have many articles published in trade magazines including Fixed Ops, BMW Newsletters and the GM Chronicles.
Before entering into the auto industry, I performed in training videos, and seminars for many customer relation industries. Teaching and performing have always been my passion.
