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…

Most dealers have been using an owner retention program (ORP) for years.

Does your Website Convert Traffic into Leads?

As I continue with a series of articles on the topic of generational leadership it’s important to shift our thinking away from what makes each generation different, or what makes different generations “difficult,” and instead get back to leadership basics and outline important aspects of a workplace that ALL generations want, respond well to, and are more productive as a result of. While there are, and will always be, specific tweaks in style, approach, verbiage, etc., that more…

Change Yourself and Change Your Scene

Many people in life are in a scene they're unhappy with, whether it's at work, on a team they're part of, or at home. So often we take a passive approach and wait for the scene to change to our liking instead of actively changing what we can control - ourselves. We spend a significant portion of our lives in the scenes we're part of, and if we want to change our scene and influence it in a positive way we've got to do our part to change ourselves first. Change yourself with the keys shared…
