Key Talking Points:

  • Victim excuse- be self-aware of how you speak to others Key is to listen to yourself before you’re going to say something instead of listening after you’ve said it
  • End of a sentence/statement/question: did it uplift you, give you life and move you forward?
  • Producing results inside before they come out
  • “One man’s confidence is one man’s arrogance.”
  • Ego is fear-based- scarcity mindset, no realization of the real value of who you areWeaknesses are overextension or misuse of a strength 
  • Ego is trying to elevate your virtue and lower another person/place or thing- you think you have to be on top or have no value
  • Women/wives in auto business tend to not have a fear-based ego when they make mistakes, want to simply correct mistakes and move on without having failure ego
  • Letting go of your ego- eating humble pie to move forwardMoment of surrender to the “what ifs/failure/shortcomings” and instead look at “what could be”
  • When you put emotional meaning/self-worth/value on a result you didn’t want you to create a victim story- instead move forward to get the result you want 
  • Emotional intelligence and personal developmentPeople don’t change until they see the prices they’re paying don't outweigh the benefits they’re getting 
  • Until someone sees what it’s costing them, their frustration creates space for the victim and ego stories to exist
  • 60% of your emotional intelligence is already hardwired in the brain by the time you’re 5 years old, 7-8 years old 80%, teenager years 95%
  • Best return on investment is an investment in yourself 
  • Unique AssessmentMeasures in thinking and the ability to produce solutions
  • Behavioral traits that affect results
  • Occupational interest

      Most of are familiar or use the more popular Automotive Business Management systems, such as MItchell 1 or RO Writer.  
      However, there is a lot of concern among many shop owners that these companies in particular are not meeting the needs for the modern automotive repair shop. 
      What system do you use and/or what systems have you checked into that look promising?

      We are in desperate need of techs. I tried Indeed and was very dissatisfied with the "talent" they sent us. I am considering Find A Wrench they post on Indeed as well as Zip Recruiter and some 90 other companies as well as social media. Has anyone tried them or ACT Auto Staffing?

      Hybrid training- virtual training brought in a new group of people with free videos and easy access to top instructors. The median income for technicians is $45,000. It starts with the business owner raising rates and paying for training.  Participate together- get the team together for online webinars  Cons of virtual- you can’t read the audience virtually, dead air. Live classes- make it interactive and fun. If you don’t make it fun you’ll lose them especially if it’s their first time going to training. Create a short ‘post test’ for after the training.  Implementing training immediately or it will be lost- recorded videos can be rewatched.  Consider signed agreement/reward system for training to hold employees accountable. Basics are the most important or you won’t be able to grasp the high-end training Sponsors- brand exposure, the content is led by the trainer Do the salespeople need to be the ones to elevate shop owners?  Classes vs seminars- in classes you are learning in order to implement Connect with the show:
