Mentally, because their advisors think they are doing well enough and don’t see the growth potential in their position. Physically, because the shop is already full, or scheduled work is backed up for days. In order to help you get the best return on your training…See More

I hear this from advisors all the time, and they couldn’t be more wrong in these assumptions. Of course, it’s great to complete a service quickly, but if being fast is our…See More

-By Sally Whitesell For AutoSuccess MagazineYour phone is ringing. It’s your most important customer calling.Your dealership has spent a lot of money to get the phones to ring. Every poorly handled call is a lost opportunity that you can’t afford.

I have performed Service Advisor training in hundreds of drives across the country at an individual and corporate level for over 21 years. Having my own company gives me the opportunity to create new innovative training every day. Our online sessions are the most relevant and interesting! 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.
