Drive Drama-Babies from Your Dealership

There is little that is less productive for a team member to engage in than drama, and to subsequently become a “drama-baby” in the process. In fact, there is little that equals drama’s ability to distract from priorities, waste time, drain energy, and make Alps out of anthills.“Drama” is the result of immature acts, committed by small-minded and selfish people who are either indifferent or oblivious to the negative value they inflict on both culture and teammates. While any of us may be prone…See More

Fix the Roof While the Sun is Shining

JFK once said, "The best time to fix the roof is when the sun is shining," meaning don't wait for something bad to happen before making a change. The natural tendency in life is to wait for the bottom to fall out before making a change to improve our life - we wait for the heart attack, for the spouse to walk out, to be passed over or fired, and more. This episode shares areas of your life where you can't afford to wait if you want to get to game changer status. Listen to it and go fix the roof…See More

How to Lead from the Middle

The challenges posed by leading from the middle were framed well by John Maxwell who wrote, “One of the toughest things about being a leader in the middle of an organization is that you can’t be sure of where you stand. As a leader, you have some power and authority. You can make some decisions. You have access to some resources. At the same time, you lack power in other areas and if you overstep your authority, you can get yourself into real trouble. Unless you are the owner or CEO, your power…See More

How to Shift a Room

Sometimes you find yourself in a situation with others where there's an evident lack of positive energy, and no sense of hope or excitement. Whether it's during a meeting, at a gathering with friends, or even at the dinner table, you have the choice to be a passive participant in the misery or to take the lead and shift the energy in the room.

Spotting the “Right” Leaders in Your Organization

How do you spot potential leaders in your organization? Is it the person that keeps asking for the promotion, for more responsibility, and has the drive to push their way into a leadership position? Probably not. To paraphrase Oswald Sanders, “The office should seek the leader more than the leader seeks the office.” This is not to say that ambition to grow and to want promotions is undesirable. It is, in fact, desirable as long as the person clamoring for more power is not in a state where his…See More

Ready to become an Unstoppable Dealership?

I’m a firm believer that creating extreme differentiation in your customer’s buying experience results in you building a game changing relationship with them. SAVY helps you do just that by equipping your sales people with the power to create so much value for the client, that you become indispensable and the competition becomes irrelevant. Just the fact that I would get behind it and recommend it, which is something I really haven’t done in over 20 years of business, should tell you it’s…See More

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.

Hope all is well in your world. Take care
