      Key Talking Points
      What they see is what they will be- As an owner you are on stage all the time Let your “yes” be yes and your “no’ be no Always do your homework and know your facts List your options and count your costs- project before you react Seek advice from the right people- listen to your instincts and make decisions based on principles  Don’t be on a leadership journey alone- need to have good people around you and you chose them, leadership is influence 7 C”s: Communication- Listen, learn, lead. Connection- Can’t ask for an employee’s hand before you have their heart-having interest in the person, value in person, express gratitude. Confident- “Be good at what you do, but be great at who you are.” Personal development must continue to grow. Find value in other people to find the right answers that you don’t know. Compassion and caring- see beyond the moment when in situations and look at the bigger picture. Curiosity- asking for feedback, ask questions based on curiosity. Character- internal, who you are when no one is looking, personal values, how you handle situations, tough times show your character. Conviction - trust is communication through conviction, leaders must be trustworthy with employees  9 questions to identify if you’re approaching the situation the right way- The root of a problem with an employee is that they are either unwilling or unable to do whatever the situation is. Need to have a balance of care and candor. Have I invested in this relationship enough so I can be candid with them? Do I truly value this person as a person or just as a team member? Am I sure that the issue is theirs and not mine? Am I sure I am not speaking up because I feel threatened Is the issue more important than the relationship? Does the conversation serve their interest and not just mine? Am I willing to invest time and energy to help them change?  Am I willing to show them how to do something and not just say what’s wrong? Am I willing to set clear expectations? Handling late employee- Ask them if they like to break promises, the hours listed for the business is a promise to the customer   Why do we hire people? To do what you would do  Interman- character/behavior, and outerman- competency  Align together

      Key Talking Points
      Leadership deficit in world- hunger and need for true and authentic leadership Leadership is influence and a skill that can be learned  Every person born has the ability to lead themselves- doesn’t have to always be a group of people.  Can’t lead others until you lead yourself- get others to speak into your life that you know, love and trust. Be intentional when leading yourself Leaders need mentors/coach - speaking into your life regularly   Everything rises and falls with leadership- look at issues within the business and discover you are the problem and the solution Employees want consistency and they do not want surprises- create policies/procedures for them to follow “We need to be a leadership company that happens to sell automotive service” Leadership within the business- grow as a leader (out of work) and get your team on board to be leaders themselves “The bridge from good to great isn’t long, but it is built by the nails of discipline.” - discipline is building processes for your life  Servant leadership- how can you better serve someone? Equipping- what areas do you need to equip yourself in so you can learn and grow? Attitude- how is your attitude about life and people?  Blindspots- if you don’t have people around you to point out and discuss your blind spots, you’ll start thinking you don’t have any. Pride is at the bottom of all great mistakes. Weak character- don’t have guidelines Thanks to Mike Davidson for his contribution to the aftermarket’s premier podcast.

      Dorman gives people greater freedom to fix vehicles by constantly developing new repair solutions that put owners and technicians first. By always innovating, Dorman has led the way in growing the aftermarket. Here you will see a few examples of a Dorman OE Fix. An OE FIX is a Dorman repair solution you can’t get from the original equipment manufacturer. It means they found a situation where they believe the OEM wasn’t giving repair professionals what they wanted, so we fixed it. Everything Dorman does is centered around providing customer value, both in the quality of products, and the creativity of solutions. Our engineers and designers go out of their way to save repair technicians time and save vehicle owners money. Want to really go under the hood?

      A lot of technicians dream about owning a performance shop.

      Cool technology, even cooler cars, and lots of horsepower...

      What's not to like?

      But what does owning a performance shop actually look like?

      Is it what was portrayed on television in years past or on YouTube today?

      To answer that question, David & Lucas are joined by Mike Maleski, the owner of PSK Auto Repair in White Oak, Pennsylvania. 

      In this candid conversation, Mike reveals the truth behind owning a performance shop.

      In our previous episode, David & Lucas were joined by Jim Cokonis, a Senior Curriculum Developer at Carquest Technical Institute. 
      We discussed the principles behind six sigma and the Toyota way and we found the conversation to be one of the most important we’ve ever had on the podcast. 
      Typically the second portion of the conversation is reserved for All-Access Patrons, but some of the things Jim had to say were too important to keep from everyone. 

      If you haven’t listened to episode 14, stop and listen to that first, then come back to this episode for the second half.
