      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.

      Brian Sump is the AAPEX 2020 Shop Owner of the Year. He owns Avalon Motor Sports and Urbana Auto Care, Denver Colorado Area
      Norm Schultz is the AAPEX 2020 Technician of the Year.
      He is an ASE Master Certified and he is from Interstate Auto Care, Madison Heights, MI owned by Bill Nalu.
      Jason Sexton is the AAPEX 2020 Service Advisor of the Year. He is from Dynamic Automotive, Frederick, MD which is owned by Dwyane Myers, Jose Bueso and Lee Forman
      Brian Sump is not your typical shop owner. A former professional athlete, Sump had never turned a wrench in a shop before starting Denver-based Avalon Motorsports in 2007. But in the years since, he has used his business acumen and detailed, process-based management philosophy to grow the German-specialty shop into what a number of industry consultants consider to be an industry leader. Brian now has four locations. Listen to Brian’s previous episodes HERE
      Norm Schultz. With no formal trade school training, Norm has worked 50 to 60 hrs per week throughout his 20 career. Getting a minimum of 40 hours of training. Making steps to a proper diagnosis. Because Norm is a ASE master technician in an auto/light truck and heavy duty truck, his workload can vary greatly day to day. His tools of the trade are everything from IATN and Identifix, to a network of seasoned technicians that he networks with regularly. Additionally, Norm has full discretion to source new diagnostic equipment/tools, and sign himself up for online and offline training for himself and his crew. Listen to Norm’s episodes HERE
      Jason Sexton has excellent sales skills. He has no problem getting the sale. He loves to learn. To keep him engaged, shop needed to send him to some form of major training a year. He is a sponge for knowledge. He has been to Vision, AAPEX, Automechanika,, Elite Worldwide 6 month Master training class, Jason Servito sales class and more. Listen to Jason’s episodes HERE
      Key Talking Points:
      Company valuesYou’re either demonstrating values or you are not  Can be easily forgotten if not at forefront of business- needs to be talked about during hiring process, employee reviews, training and day to day work environment  Instead of owner solely deciding on values, let team do it together 3 categories- aspirational (striving towards those everyday) minimum (minimum values you must possess) core/cornerstone (unwavering value) Being a team player- celebrate the small wins and support each other during the difficult times Learn how to communicate with each other and guide each other- read body language  Toxicity in the work environment can be a detrimental decline in business- what is causing the toxicity within that employee and how can it get turned around  Finding a “home” and reinventing yourself Discover Norm Shults “2.0” Norm drives 86 miles one way to work. Sacrifices will be made to find the right work environment  Share the ‘secret sauce’ to success instead of protecting it   Always be of the mindset that you are training your replacement Create leaders in your businessSecond in command  3 types of people in business- sponges (new people soaking up information and culture, hyengas (gossip, unpleasant) camels (one hump- loyal and make right choices, two hump- ideal employee, servant leader)  Always be recruiting  There’s always tomorrowYou will get through it- no matter how difficult a situation may be New customers tomorrow and the support of employees around you Resources:

      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.

      These principles can be applied to everything from diagnosing a vehicle to diagnosing your own business.
